Being a Type-A mom has its perks. But the truth is, I go to great lengths to keep all my shit together. Sometimes it’s too damn much.
I am still grateful for the life that I have. Solo parents are the strongest people you will meet.
At the end of each day, I empty my pockets, the day’s debris a reminder of how tedious, how mundane, how important it is to mom.
I never fantasized about living a life that involved scrubbing nuggets of nostril-poop off my walls, but here I am.
Identifying as a single mother by choice is a political and defiant act in a society that has narrow views regarding women and motherhood.
We older moms don’t always recall how relentless parenting little kids really is. But I want to tell you that it will not always be so.
