Tell me about yourself
My name is Deijahna-Lynn, I’m a 28 year-old single mother. I’m also a full-time broadcasting student and part time server. I became a mom In November 2016.
Have you always wanted children? If not when did that change?
Yes, I’ve always wanted children! I loved babies as a young child. I’d baby every chance I could get! Luckily for me, a lot of my moms friends had kids.
Tell me about either the birth, or the infancy stage of your child
My birth was overall a good experience. My water broke however, I didn’t go into active labour until about 24-hours later. I had to get induced after a certain period of time, and I immediately knew that I wanted the epidural! No question about it, it was intense! Days after giving birth I was back in the classroom. I’m grateful because my teachers allowed me to bring my infant to classes.
The Funniest memory from birth was making them give me the epidural twice because it didn’t work the first time!
What’s something that you wish people knew about your son?
I wish people knew that my son could count to 10 before he was one. He’s so intelligent, funny and loving. I’m already proud of the little person he’s becoming.
What’s something that you wish people knew about you?
I wish people would knew that I was a serious yogi! I practice yoga everyday now because I’ve just realized that it’s super essential & wish everyone else would go too! If you don’t already do yoga, change that, it’s a game changer!
What’s the biggest sacrifice of motherhood to you?
The biggest sacrifice of motherhood was my social life. I cope by being selective of my free time. I prioritize my time a lot better now.
What do you love most about being a mom? Name 3 things.
What I love most about being a mom is that it makes me a better person, I’m more reliable now, more effective and I do everything with intent and purpose.
Who does your tribe consist of? What’s something that you wish they knew?
My tribe consist of my mother , my brother , my aunt & my grandmother and her twin sister. I wish they knew how grateful I was for everything they do for Elias and I. I can’t possibly thank them enough!
What lessons and values do you hope to instill in your son?
The lessons I hope to have instilled into Elias are: to be humble, always be kind to others, and to do everything with intent and just to try his best at anything he does.
Tell us about your social media page, and can we follow you?
Yes please follow me on social media. My medium of choice is most definitely Instagram. My handle is :
I love interacting with my followers and learning and sharing different information and living tools while also inspiring one another. Plus I post funny memes LOL!
Wisdom for other moms?
The best advice that I think I could give any mother is to always make time for yourself at least once a week, it’s-self care and you and your kids will both be better for it!
Your child doesn’t need a perfect mom, they need a happy mom.
