Draya Michele might come across as a party girl on Basketball Wives LA, but it might be that the reality TV star is starting to make changes for the better. In a recent post on Instagram, Michele admitted to making mistakes in raising her son Kniko, but says she loves her family, which includes boyfriend Orlando Scandrick and his two daughters, and that they have changed her life.

"These kids are my life…," she wrote in the photo's caption. "I didn't start out knowing everything about being the best mother, I had to learn as I go.. I know now that I have an exceptional son, who gets good grades, is healthy and ambitious, loves soccer and school. And Orlando : you added to my load but I want you to know that I love those little girls and I take pride in putting home cooked meals on those Tinkerbelle plates, brushing up that hair and doing finger curls, painting those toenails, and buying pink and purple of the tiniest little clothes. I taught those girls how to swim last weekend and I love our family. Thanks for giving me the experience of helping you with your babies."

In 2011, Draya Michele was accused of endangering the welfare of a child when she left her son alone in her apartment so she could allegedly go out and party, so we're happy to hear that she's learning from her past and making positive strides to be a better mother.
