Today is Single Parent Day. Who knew? Certainly not me. I just found out when reading this lovely post by J.
I had a whole other post planned for today, but I think I'll just let the Day speak for itself.
To all those Single Parents out there - pat yourselves on the back. You deserve it. I know I don't ever do it and there's no reason I shouldn't.
To all those Kids of Single Parents - give your Mom or Dad a big hug and a hearty Thanks for doing what they do and working so hard and loving you so much. It'll mean the world to them.
While every single parenting situation is different (we've all come to the Single Parent 'Hood on different paths), and some situations are better than others, it's still a rough ride. Don't doubt yourselves, don't stop loving your kid(s). Enjoy your day. Celebrate your Family.
This calls for a dinner out tonight - but a light, healthy one. I lost 2 lbs this week and I don't want to blow it.
