Family is Family!

“There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”

Kevin Hart discusses his current relationship with girlfriend, Eniko Parish. Following his divorce with former wife Torrei, he gets many questions and confusion with his relationship with Eniko. Kevin however, remains steady and continues to demonstrate his love for Eniko, notwithstanding opinions from critics. During a recent interview with Necole Bitchie, the comedian/ actor who is currently starring in the movie “About Last Night” discusses some of the many reasons he feels Eniko is wifey material.

“I found somebody who put a smile on my face,” he confessed. “I found somebody who genuinely made me happy. Which people don’t realize is not an easy task. You know, the word ‘happy’ is a strong word. I’m not talking about facilitating happiness, I’m talking about genuinely making me happy. And she does that.”

He continues to discuss Eniko’s strength and commitment to him is more connected and deep than many people realize.

“Eniko is a strong woman in my life. Not [just] in the way she embraces me but from the way that- in the beginning of our relationship, for years I kept my kids away from what we were doing until I felt [they] were ready and when I finally did [put her around my kids] she embraced that as well.”

“The way that she stepped up to the plate and just accepted me for who I am, accepted me as a man coming in with kids and not even blinking an eye. I think she’s shown that she’s a woman who has my back. And that’s what you want when you’re in the position that I’m in and you’re in the entertainment business. Everybody’s going to question everything you do. Everybody’s going to question everything you say, but you have to come to a strong decision of what’s right and what’s wrong. And right now, the one thing I can say is right is having that woman in my life.”

Kevin also shares how his love and commitment with Eniko does not take away from his relationship with his ex-wife and mother to his kids, Torrei.

“To be honest with you, me and my ex-wife, we had our problems. We had REAL problems. So we both walked away from that. And we’re happy that we did and we’re in a better space.”

“At the end of the day, you gotta realize that sometimes people just aren’t meant to be together and you find that out differently,” he said. “But you know, I think the good thing about me and my ex-wife [Torrei] is- I love the fact that [she] is the mother of my kids. I wouldn’t ask for a better person to do it. She gave me two amazing kids and because of that, that’s [her] invaluable purpose to our relationship and in our life.”

“So from this day on, we’re in each others’ lives. We’re friends. We’re [amicable]. It’s not a thing where we don’t get along or we’re fighting all the time. We’re good.”

My Insights!

Kevin Hart seems he is at a happy state in his life. Kudos to him. I am glad he is able to balance his relationship with his current love interest and his ex-wife. It all boils down to being with someone who genuinely makes you happy and brings out the best in you. I hope to attain that similar balance in managing my relationship with my ex as we co-parent our kids together and having a special gent in my life that embraces me and my existing family without hesitation. Ok, to be real, my kids and I are handful, so I am alright with mild hesitation, just don’t make it too apparent. LOL! I am always excited to share positive blended families or prospective blended families. Life after divorce can be blissful and does not always end on a negative note.

On celebrating Valentine’s Day as a Single Mom

Thought this was to the point. Happy Valentine’s Day to the Single Mommies!

Cookies and Confessions

Valentine's post

I get it. This is the year’s most romantic holiday and you are celebrating alone. But, let’s face it.

We’re never alone!

We have our beautiful children. And, if this holiday is all about celebrating love, what greater love is there on earth than a mother’s love for her children? Not much. Actually, I think it’s the most powerful love I’ve ever felt between two people. It takes a lot of love to still enjoy being with our children after a day when they have destroyed the house, whined, and have decided to take a shower in the dog’s water bowl using a ramekin (well, maybe this is something only my child has done… Ha!).

So, there are several ways that we can have can have an awesome Valentine’s day with our kids.

1) Make your own Valentine’s day cards

Apparently, back before you could buy cards premade at the…
