This website is a big passion project of mine. When I was starting out as a single mom I wished there was more out there to make me feel included and less alone. So I decided I was going to start writing down topics of discussion that I dealt with, struggled through and came out the other side so that I could share those things with other moms who might be going through the same struggles that I was and still am dealing with. So please, enjoy and be patient with me as I tweak and add and improve! I can't wait to get to know each and every one of your unique stories!

Guest Blogger

Often times it's hard hearing from one single source, especially when it comes to parenting; and DOUBLE especially when it comes to single parenting. That's why I've included a Guest Blogger section. This way periodically you can hear from other parents who have been there too, varying in all age ranges, parenting styles, and child counts. These mom's have been hand selected to share their trials and errors, laughter and tears, so that you can know you're not crazy. Well... not entirely...
