As every Super-mom knows, figuring out, signing up for, arranging for transportation to and from, and coordinating activities for your brood is a full-time job, in itself.

And! It’s a full-time job that many a Super-mom don’t get acknowledged for.

So, my Sisters, this Super-mom is acknowledging you.

Right here and right now after I literally spent hours today doing this—asking my kids about, figuring out, scheduling, signing up, arranging transportation to and from, and then coordinating my kids’ activities for “next session.”

And camp!

OMG, camp.

You gotta be so on the ball to make sure yo kids make it in to the Y for camp for next summer, that you gotta sign em up on a certain Tuesday mid December (hellloow, mid Holiday season), to make sure they get a slot for next July.

December, for JULY!

I spent 45 minutes at the Y today signing my three big kids up for Camp Chickami and Pikati, and I had the nicest woman-in-charge ever helping me.

So here it is, a shout out.

You ROCK, Super-mom.

I acknowledge and commend you all for ALL you do, including the whole activity thang . . . and, mind you, this is before you ever step foot out the door to actually attend the activity.

LOL.

Super-Mom of the Month

Super-mom Kim Cherelli

 

WOW!! Supermom of the month.    I was shocked to say the least when Taylor mentioned she wanted me to be her super mom of the month.  Me?  I never thought there was anything super about me.  I’m as average as average is, nonetheless I was and am honored to be thought of.

 

I met Taylor a year ago during Teacher Training at Prana Power Yoga.  I was instantly drawn to her energy and knew I was in the right place.  I didn’t know why I decided to become a yoga instructor nor did I know what I was getting into.  You see prior to signing up for the 8 week teacher training I think I practiced yoga about a dozen times.  I woke up one day and said “ I think I’d like to be a yoga instructor”  I proceeded to ask my yoga instructor at BSC how one goes about becoming an instructor.  She told me about Prana and here I am a whole year later.  I wasn’t really sure what I was looking for other than the fact I was looking for “something” the something that yoga instructors have.  I’m learning every day and I’m a work in progress but this is a journey and I am excited to see where it takes me.  The teacher training was an emotional and beautiful experience.  As quickly as the thought popped into my head to become a yoga instructor the same happened for my understanding why.  I’m understanding I am where I am suppose to be right now at this moment.  Stress is not as prevalent as before and I’m understanding people a bit better.

 

So, a lil about me.  I’m a single mom of one 18 year old son.  I don’t consider myself any different than the next mother. I never found raising a child difficult because it came naturally to me. .  I raised him simply the way I wanted to be treated.  I always knew I wanted to be a mother. I was 24 when I found out I was pregnant and afraid to tell my mother.  I knew what she would say or better yet the look or her face would tell me how disappointed she was.  Most people know my situation and how my son was the result of an abusive relationship, however I wouldn’t have change a thing.  I had to go through that for my son to be born.  If I didn’t then he wouldn’t have been born and I can’t imagine my life without him.  People congratulate me for being a single mom  my son does too but I don’t think I deserve any special credit.  Putting aside all my heartache and struggles in my life, it’s nothing compared to what some are going through.  I do count my blessings and I feel blessed to have been given this gift of motherhood.  There are those who want children and can’t   I am so very thankful and I can’t say it enough…..It’s truly a blessing.

“where you are at this moment is where you are suppose to be”

Sending love and light to all
