Never trust a mirror, it can only show you what's skin deep. You can't see how your eyelids flutter when you're drifting off to sleep. It doesn't show you what the world sees, when you're only being you, or how your eyes light up when you're loving what you do. It doesn't capture when you're smiling, where no one else can see. And your reflection can't tell you every thing you mean to me. Never trust a mirror, for it only shows your skin. And if you think it dictates your worth, it's time you look within! #beautyismorethanskindeep #nextmaximcovergirl . . 📸 @wayne_sysock Tattoo work @doinstuffwiththings Remember to vote for me @maximmag for #maximcovergirlcomp
I'm a momma to a little 10 year old girl (mom to 5 boys too ) and a grandma to a 6 year old girl (Everleigh was at dance ) and an 8 month old little girl. I'm not a conventional mom nor conventional grandma. I'm goofy, I sing way too loudly in the car and dance while I'm driving! I think rules were meant to be broken just a little bit!! Ha ha!! I never thought I would have a daughter, especially one that is my little twin. And having 2 grand daughters is pretty fun. Everleigh has that love of life as I do and I adore Posie's faces....yes look at that little face!! ❤️ . . To those that follow me, I'm sure I'm not what you expected. But I do hope when you see my posts I make you smile and feel good about your self! Life is very precious, BE HAPPY, SMILE, DANCE, SING, LOVE!! . .

I figure I'll let this be a good birthday post picture! It was a lot of fun last night! I'm thinking I might let this be my new look!! 😂😂
Many of you may not know, but my second son is @cole labrant 😂 Seriously, when I was pregnant with him, my biggest worry was, how could I love this baby (because we didn't find out his gender until he was born ) as much as I did Luke, my oldest. Then Cole was born and my heart grew even larger. I easily had enough love to share with him too! I'm not sure if other moms worried about that with their second pregnancy, but if you did, you know what I'm talking about, your heart truly does grow. . . I'll get asked, which child do I love the most, or do I love Posie or Ev more...my answer is, I love all of them equally. Each child and grand child is precious and they are my world!! . . FUN FACTS : 1. I was ready to push Cole out, so my feet were in the stirrups. It was lunch time, so my doctor entered the room and ordered pizza for lunch! Ha ha! So I'm all wide open with the doctor and nurses ordering lunch! No, I didn't even get a slice of that pizza! 🤬 2. Cole had issues breathing a night his first winter. So I slept with him on my chest every night. I was sitting up in the lazy boy and had a humidifier blow on him every single night. 3. When he was being a silly or mischievous baby, he would breathe in and out of his nose very quickly and curl up his nose. That was his little stink pot face and sound. . . 23 years later, he is a dad of his own. Creating memories that will last a life time. Happy birthday Cole. I love you very much and I can't wait to see you and your family in 2 days! #birthdayboy #happybirthday
My little bit...she has heart!! 💞

Take 2 (LONG POST BELOW ) I deleted the first post because the second picture was of the hole in my dress. Apparently some felt it was too sexy. Back story. I have put on 5 pounds over the past 2 months (on purpose because I feel the added weight looks better on me ) This dress is tight, I bent over to put on my shoes and I ripped the whole butt area on my dress.. Not a little hole but a huge hole. I thought it was funny because my fat butt busted out of the dress. The picture didn't show my whole butt, just a piece. I also didn't have the photographer edit out my butt and leg cellulite. I didn't think it was sexy, but it seems that it was, so I deleted. . . It's hard for me to comprehend why an older woman, mom, grandma can't be sexy or where that line is. What one person thinks is funny, another is offended and thinks it looks like porn. Not everyone sees things the same. I also do not understand why sexy is limited to 16-24 (depending on when you have a kid ) so moms can't be sexy and grandmas definitely can't be sexy. I don't understand the rude comments about my hands, my cleavage, my dresses.... . . Modesty is different for every person. I may think my dress is modest and someone else may think I look like a stripper. I don't buy Lily one piece bathing suits because they are either too big and gaps open or they ride up her butt. But she had to wear one because someone decided a child's tummy showing isn't modest?? Why do we put value on a woman's worth if she is modest? What line do we draw for modesty? Some think women shouldn't wear any sort of pants, while others think shorts are still modest. . . I thought this was a fight I was willing to fight. A woman's value isn't based upon her modesty. Age is just a number. All shapes, colors, body types, stages in life are beautiful. Sex appeal isn't just for the young and as a woman ages she shouldn't be ashamed of her looks because they aren't what they used to be. But, I think I'm done. I don't feel its worth reading the rude comments and DMs. It's not worth my sons and my daughter reading horrible comments about their mom. I'll still be me, yall just won't see as much of me! ❤️❤️
Come give mamma a kiss!! This was actually a set up, he still gives me kisses and hugs and THAT makes him cool! #kissingyourmomiscool #mothersonlove
10 years ago we all filled up the car to drive to the hospital for the first and only girl to be born. We all wore some sort of pink in our hair. When she came out, I asked Ken to double check that she really was a girl!! 😂. She was the perfect female addition to our boy entourage! Happy Birthday my mini me!! I love you more!! 💞 . . #birthdaygirl #minime #loveyoumore
Rain on the beach for the Fourth?? No big deal! I hope you all are having a great day with your friends and family!! This bikini is from @modnique #modnique . . I did not edit or filter or alter this picture. I want yall to see real!!
I do not think I need to say any thing. I want to say how beautiful she is and say how much we look alike...but then I sound conceited!! Lol. I really enjoy having my mini-me! She gets me!! . . Dresses @showmeyourmumu #mommydaughtergoals #mommydaughtermatching #mimime #mylittlegirl
Little Posie loved my necklace! Every time I held her, she would grab it and suck on it. I'm seriously thinking about getting those candy necklaces after her teeth have come in! I think that would be funny! . . Kinda sucks being so far away, but I can't be all that sad because it feels good knowing your children and grandchildren are happy!
I often get asked how do I stay in shape for my age and because I have 6 kids. I'm not a trainer even tho I did teach classes years ago.

This was the day we left. Everleigh had to leave early for her dance. I started to tear up! Everleigh really is such a sweet and fun girl. Even tho she is gorgeous, I love how she gets dirty, does gross things, howls like a wolf for kisses from me. She even gets our jokes, pretty mature for a little girl. . . I had a great time with you Everleigh! Kisses from Cici!! 💋
For Tates 13th birthday we flew to California to see Cole, Savannah, Everleigh, and Posie. Posie is excited to have uncle Tate hold her! . . #birthdayboy

The past couple of days have been interesting for me online. As many of you know, even tho I'm a boy mom x 5, I like to promote women and encourage women. I've had to block a couple of men over the years, but most of the people that I've had to block, are women!! The attacks are really quite surprising. Today i had to block one person, twice and another person for the second time because she went after me on Twitter. Now, what are the reasons for the hate?? The list seems crazy to me...but here we go....boobs too big, too old, act your age, dress your age, Everleigh calls Cole "dad", I'm not Ev's real grandma, why don't I love Ev as much as Posie, I support Savannah making decisions best for her daughter, I won't facetime them, I look like I do porn, someone wanted me to get cancer so I would lose my hair and my breasts, my voice is annoying, I'm an embarrassment, I don't believe in god, no one wants to see my old ass, I'm 50, I'm 60, I'm 70, I'm gross... . . Where does this sort of hatred come from? I'm older and it doesn't hurt my feelings, but I think about young girls that get cyber bullied. It has to be hard to block out that negativity. You can block the people (which I've done ) but you have still read the comments. Why do women feel like they have to attack other women?? Why do women feel like they have to tear down their "competition" even if that woman isn't their competiton at all?? . . I know when I see an older woman that is vibrant and loving life, that woman is my goal not my competition. When I see a woman that is in incredible shape, she is my goal not my competition!! When I see a woman that's a hard worker and has compassion, she is my goal!! . . Stop the hatred! And if you feel like you can't say something nice, then don't say any thing at all. It doesn't make you look clever, funny, or intelligent...you just look petty and sad. I hope this encourages you all to be kind and to lift each other up, even if that person isn't doing what you would do. And to the few haters that are going to say something, don't whine when I'm rude back and block your ass!! . . 📸 @wayne_sysock 🕍 @central_fl_real_estate_ #stopthehate
I'm embarrassed to admit this, but I haven't seen a dentist in at least 10 years!! I was LONG over due!!! I went to @thurstondentalflorida and saw Dr. Duke. I got x-rays, pictures, they checked my teeth (kinda dirty lol ). Everyone was so professional and nice. They were also honest, because they could have said I had tons of cavatites and i wouldn't have known any different!! But my teeth were healthy. I'll have to go back in 2 weeks to get them cleaned more (yes they were that bad!! ). The oral hygienist was very careful cleaning my teeth and none of it hurt. I also will pick up my teeth whitening kit that is made just for me. I'll be sharing that too once I get it. If you're in the Tampa area, they are definitely worth the drive!! I highly recommend them!! . . #dentist #teethcleaning #tampaflorida #oralcare
