Raising a little one amidst a divorce

This is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done. It’s not impossible. It’s quite the journey. I became a single mom when my kiddo was 9 months old. In reality, I was a single mom in a marriage.

There is constantly a new challenge. I lost a sense of myself in my marriage and the family we created. I am more of “me” now as a single mom than I was before. This in return has made me the best damn mom I can be.

Some key challenges have been: keeping a routine, accepting that we are hitting milestones without the other parent, addressing their is another parent to the child.

I have a situation where my daughter has had so many accomplishments and I have no one to share the good news with. I have my family and friends, but that just hits differently.

This isn’t an impossible task. It’s hard and like anything in life, it has its ups and downs. The highs will be the ultimate high and the lows can get pretty low. But you will survive! Find those that make up your tribe and keep pushing on!
