Life Changes I Wish I’d Made Sooner

By the time I turned 25, I was sure my life was a single-lane highway.

A single-lane highway with no exits. As far as I was concerned, I was headed in the same direction, with no…

3 Easy Ways to Share Nature With Your Kids This Summer

There’s something about the summer that brings out the fun in kids. Long summer days without any thought of school foster the type of carefree living children relish every year. The only bad thing about the summer is it can go by really fast. As parents, it is important to…

The Upside Of Single Parenting

 
People always talk aout the down sides of being a single parent and although I'll admit there are some like having to deal with a parent you may not get along with, financial struggles, child support issues and the genral stress that comes from being a parent. Add on top of all of that the extra stress that comes with being a single parent and you sometimes forget to think about the good because we get so caught up in everything else. Being a single parent doesn't have to be a bad thing, it doesn't have to be negative and truthly there are a lot of upsides to being a single parent......
The Upsides Of Being A Single Parent
1. There's Nobody To Fight With - Okay technically this isn't completly true but when the other person doesn't live with you its a lot easier to just put the phone down and turn off all the lights if you don't want to deal with them.
2. You Get The Final Say - At least where my son is involved this is true. I have sole legal and physically custody of him so desicions regarding his well being are in the end my desicion to make.
3. There's No "But dad said" - I'm sure everyones dealt with this at least once or twice but I can say that I never have more or less because my son doesn't have a relationship with his dad. What I say goes....
4. Knowing I did It On My Own - Knowing that I can and am raising an amazing little boy on my own.
5. Being In Control Of My Own Money - There may never be enough but at the end of the month if the money that is supposed to be there isn't the only one i have to blame is myself!
6. More Quality Time - 
7. I know My Son Better Then Anyone - I'm the one who has been there since day one. I know his likes, his dislikes, the face he makes when he doesn't feel good and when he's pulling my leg. I know him better then anyone else.
8. I Get To Decide How He Will Be Raised - And I sure as hell am raising a loving, open and happy little boy.
The thing is I could sit here all night and list the upsides of being a single parent but the truth is I've never really looked at it as there being a downside. I'm proud of the mother that I am and I'm even prouder knowing that I can do it on my own. I love my little boy, I love the independence that we share and I can't imagine life any other way.
