“I’m super thankful for her because when she visits her dad she feeds her, takes care of her, buys her gifts, and basically takes care of her like her own.
“Why do all these moms act so spiteful and jealous towards the other women?? NOONE said it was easy trying to be a mother to a kid you didn’t have. So when there is someone trying don’t push them away! Because they DON’T need the drama they WILL leave and then your stuck with someone who is the evil step mom. Yes they exist! I see them every where!
“A kid can have two moms because in my eyes the more people that love her I’m happy!!! I would never make her feel like an outsider I’m extremely thankful for this girl ❤️❤️❤️
“Ladies grow up and focus on being a good mom not worrying about what’s on your baby daddy’s girl friends Facebook and Instagram while your kid is right next to you. Love more hate less!!!”
