My brain started to believe that a … Continue reading Life After a Toxic Relationship

The kids are resisting me today. They resisted yesterday and the day before. I’m not their teacher, coach or basically anyone they really want to listen to. I’m their Mom. I’m that person who is there for them no matter what and they know I’ll be there for them at the end of the day, … Continue reading Single Mom’ing This. Legit.
I am missing extra curriculars BIG TIME today. I miss waking up at 5am to get my son to the arena for an early morning practice and then racing to get my daughter to dance on time and then home to get whoever to where ever.
