Single Mom-ing is HARD!

Part One

Quick note before we begin: When I started writing this blog post, I thought I would be able to get it all out at once. But that’s not the case here. This subject is one that’s close to my heart. One that I struggle with and see so many others struggle with daily. Most times, we laugh, cry, and pretend we’re okay and have this parenting thing down. But we all know, deep down, we have no idea what in the world we’re doing. I have over 10,000 hours, which is the amount of time it takes to be considered an expert into this and I'm far from knowledgeable. As a matter of fact, the math geek in me told me to be more specific. I am 157,680 hours on one and 70080 hours with the other, to be exact for a whopping total of 227,760 hours, over 5,000 full-time work weeks into this parenting thing, and I'm doin' the shifts two at a time now. But most days, I feel like I'm still in training, and within my probationary period in real life. So, all I can do is speak my truth, and hope that it resonates with some of you.
