Welcome to Cerrato Mom. I created this site as a way to organize my thoughts and as a form of personal therapy. Being a mom is HARD. Being a human being is HARD. If you are a parent or person who struggles I hope you find some rest in my writing, whether it is to feel understood, to lose yourself in a poem, or get a different perspective on parenting. My aim is to reach beyond the superficial and establish a human connection.
Here is a little more about me:
I am first and foremost a MOTHER. I am committed to raising my three children to be kind, empathetic, independent, and confident individuals.
I am an aspiring WRITER and POET. My love of words goes back to my childhood and remains a constant.
I am a SURVIVOR of abuse. I am RESILIENT. I am HEALING from the pain of my past.
