A few thoughts on single motherhood….

Sorry for the radio silence the past few weeks.  If you have been reading my blog for a while now, you know that I am a single mom to three perfectly perfect (yeah right!) children aged 6, 4, and 2.

I not really sure why but the past few weeks of summer I suddenly felt a little overwhelmed with life.  Getting everyone ready for school to start, making sure to cross the last of the things off of the summer bucket list, being everything to everyone all the time was finally starting to take a toll on me.  School has since started for us, and only having one child for 4 hours a day while the other two are gone (and if I’m lucky that child sleeps for a couple of those hours) has done wonders for my sanity!

Being a single mom is no joke.  Neither is being a mom with the support of a husband, but I would not know much about that either.  Even when I was married I still felt very much like a single mom. Being a mother is general is the hardest yet most rewarding thing I have ever done.  Being “on” all the time will wear anyone down eventually though.  I am finally feeling more like myself, I started dating a great guy (yay!), and getting back into a routine has done wonders for my little family.

I feel like I am getting stuff done, like my house doesn’t look like constant chaos, and I am finally showering daily again.  You know, the little things.

So with my divorce almost final (yay! I swear the courts move slower than molasses), I am settling into this new routine of life, which will hopefully include more blog posts for you all!
