Life is full of surprises, and none more than being a single mom. I have 3 children (1 girl, 2 boys), 5 ex-step children (3 boys, 2 girls) and 2 ex-husbands. This had led to having a very full life with a huge learning curve in life’s essentials, such as patience, sense of humor, hope, exhaustion, more patience, and way more sense of humor. There is a lot of stuff to know that isn’t in those child rearing books. Please enjoy my sharing of honest, yet hopefully valuable, insights into family life.
