“All the single ladies….All the single ladies” (in my Beyonce voice)
Single Dads too!
But do you sometimes feel overwhelmed? Like you continue to give and give and everyone keeps taking and taking? Until you have nothing left?
I sometimes feel like I’m drifting through my single life (in my stilettos) just barely hanging on….just when I think I can’t possibly do anymore….someone needs something. Seriously?!
Where’s the rest and relaxation I hear all these single people talking about? Where are the perfect kids everyone else seems to have? There’s always some project, homework assignment, soccer game, hair emergency or sibling rivalry between the kids going on that I can’t even hear myself think. Let alone the power struggle, because kids always want to be in charge.
So how do you get through it? Who has time to go to the gym or watch a movie? I sure as hell don’t. By the time I hunt down a babysitter, I’m more exhausted than when I started. I can’t even guarantee that I’ll sleep at least 5 hours a night let alone try to relax. But sometimes I need to go out and have fun just to save my sanity! A little music, a little dancing….a little Captain Morgan.
I realize we do it because our kids are the most important aspects of our lives. But couldn’t I be rich also? It’s a lot easier to cry in a fucking mansion!!! But, even if you don’t have a big house, a luxury car, or my dream…..NO DEBT, you have your health, your kids….
