This Is Not JUST A Dresser

This is a dresser. But it's not JUST a dresser. This is a dresser I built completely by myself at 32 weeks. To me, it feels like a symbolic piece of my motherhood.

Could I build this thing?, I wondered. By myself? Could I do it without a man, husband, partner?

As I mentioned in previous videos and on Instagram, we've been doing a lot of prep work in anticipation for the baby. Building this dresser was probably one of my most, if not the most, dreaded of anticipated tasks because of the amount of manual labor involved. But it's done. And the fact that it is makes me feel all the more accomplished.

This dresser is a good reminder to myself of the strength of my determination and that, yes, I CAN do this. Sounds cheesy, I know, but it's true. Physical strength has never been my forte and, sometimes, admittedly, I have doubts about my limitations as a single mom. But I do believe when there's enough love and passion, anything is possible. This dresser and my family are living proof. xo
