Hi, I’m Chantera Gunn. I’m a mom, and some days I have no idea what I’m doing! Where is the bawling emoji face when you need it? Being a mom (a twin mom at that), I am constantly on Pintrest, Google, and even Instagram trying to get advice or new ideas on how to be their mom the best way I can. I’ve searched mucus and poo color meanings, how to trick my toddlers into eating vegetables, how to potty train. And now I’ve reached the point where I’m searching how to survive the “Terrible Two’s” times TWO. My identical twin girls have their good days, but boy, when they are having a challenging day, it’s a lot. When positive reinforcement and time-outs have run their course, it would be super easy for me to crack open a bottle of wine and grab a straw and head to my closet and just admire my new conquests. But then I look at their beautiful faces and think, "KEEP GOING MAMA!" I can look up and search all I want, but the truth of the matter is being a mom is about humility, patience and strength all in one. I am their only guide to navigate this life, so I am fully aware of the responsibility I hold to just keep trying and show them better. So on the moments I get to see them loving each other and practicing the life tools I’ve taught them, it feels great. And that bottle of wine that you were probably eyeing to flee the scene, well that can wait till after the kiddos are fast asleep!
The Style Gunn
