Thirteen Things about Being a Single Parent

1. You get the majority of the hugs & kisses all to yourself.

2. You are there for all of the special moments that touch your heart.

3. You have to deal with the bills and headaches on your own too.

4. Discipline is harder when you feel guilty because the other parent ignores them.

5. Hearing them say “I Love You, Mom” has SO much more meaning.

6. You feel bad when you don’t have the extra cash for book fairs, ice cream cones, or everyday little requests.

7. Going to the grocery store requires a baby sitter or a lion tamer.

8. Locking the bathroom door to take a bath is considered “a break”.

9. You wonder how any parent could simply not want to be involved in their child’s life.

10. You realize that no matter how much love you give them, it doesn’t make up for the other parent not spending time with them.

11. You still keep giving them all the love you can, and hope they understand.

12. Eventually, they stop asking for him.

13. You cherish everyday, knowing that when they’re older, they WILL understand.
