I've been in this group for some time now but this is my first post... and I blame the wine for making me a little emotional.
So this is my third holiday season as a single parent and I just finished wrapping all the gifts and putting the finishing touches on the house. And as I sit here alone, with my daughter at her dad's this weekend, I can't help but be in awe of what us moms do for our children and how we just flat out make it work no matter what.
I never planned this for my life. Hanging ornaments and lights and planning that stupid fucking elf on the shelf shit by myself. But these are the cards I was dealt, and each December I look back at the year and have no regrets on the decisions I've made for Savana. (Okay, maybe a few lol...)
So I just wanted to give a shout out to all the moms in this group. Single moms, married moms, moms in relationships, moms who are married or in relationships but are basically single mothering it (we know how that goes). We are awesome!! Some days we think our kids might hate us, or that we are completely fucking them up, but we are raising strong, amazing little men and women. And I'm so happy to see groups like this where women support each other and raise each other up, because it really does take a village.
So cheers to us awesome women and mamas!!!!!!
Ok, I’m done. Gonna go top my wine glass off now.
