My Latte Brings All the Boys to the Yard

I am a silly single mom of three kids who writes in order to maintain my sanity. Some of these things I should probably not document. This doesn't stop me. I am usually inappropriate. I am always all about the fun. So, yeah. There's that.

What's the biggest misconception people have about single parenting?

I think most people just don't understand how difficult and overwhelming it is. I used to tell people I was a single parent even when I was married, because I did the lion's share of the "work" at home, but now? It is chaos sometimes. Utter. Chaos.

What's the most rewarding thing about being a single parent?

The most rewarding thing about being a single parent is that I am forced to take the one-on-one time with my children and watch them grow and .... become people.

Knowing that by witnessing my strength and how I overcome day-to-day adversities they will see they can be strong too. I also hope they learn from my mistakes.

What's the most important thing being a single parent has taught you?

Being a single parent has taught me I have strength I never knew existed. I can do this. I can learn how to take care of myself and my kids. I am also human, and that is okay.
