I Am Who I Am ..

Day turns to night and the months pass by. Seasons change and the years seem to go by faster as I get older. I change. I evolve. I am not the person I was 5 years ago, nor am I the writer I was 5 years ago. I have changed.

However, one thing remains constant in my life. My son. My life has evolved, but for the past 8 years one person has remained by my side giving me the support and love I could not find anyplace else. My son - Dylan.

Although I am a me, Michelle, and I have a life of my own as a grown woman, my life would not be the same without him. That is why this blog is called Life with Dylan ... not because my life has no meaning without him, or because I want to continually talk about my child, but because this is what I choose.

I am many things ...

I have been a Beach Baby since I was old enough to walk. Therefore, my twitter handle is @bchbby
I am a makeup artist. Maybe not in the business sense anymore, but I will always be a makeup artist.
I am a Mom. Some may say I am a Mommy Blogger.
I am a college graduate who made sacrifices for 2 1/2 years to get my BS in Psychology.
I am a writer who loves to tell stories.

 ... and right beside me through these sacrifices, triumphs, challenges, and life is Dylan.

We have a bond that cannot be explained. There is no Dad in the picture here. We are together 24/7 with the exception of school and work of course ... and I always find time for me because I know that is important for both of us. I am going through a lot of changes in my life right now. My career is changing and who knows, maybe one day I will change the name of this blog ... but for now this is one thing that will not change.


  1. That is so sweet. You are a great Mom too!

  2. Great post! Think we all question that, but you are right, when it comes to our kids, we know exactly who we are. Beautiful!

  3. Thanks Shelby.
    Cari - Yes, we sometimes question who we are and why we do the things we do ... but when it comes to our children there is never a question.
