Can we just give a shout out to the single parents?
The last two weeks have been a little tougher than usual, I’ve been a poorly mama (can you even be ill with children?) and have spent much of it whilst my hubs has worked hard under a hefty dose of feeling-so-sorry-for-myself... “What an exhausting week. HOW HAVE YOU MANAGED THIS? You are so drained, aren't you?? You really deserve a break.” And then this morning it hit me. My mostly, ‘super tired, stressful, crazy (but incredibly rewarding) all-by-myself week" is a single parents’ reality. It’s every bloody day.
Every day, they do the night feeds.
Every day, they do the housework.
Every day, they read bedtime stories.
Every day, they soothe and comfort.
Every day, they play and teach.
They do it all, alone.
That is the reality for single parents.
I honestly do not think most of us give this enough thought, of the sheer exhaustion and energy it takes to do it single handedly.
Therefore, I want to say CHEERS. Cheers to all of the single parents out there who go above and beyond for their families. I hope that all of you can see how amazing you are, and that your dedication and hard work will never ever be ignored.
Your children will one day see your strength, and I promise you they will boss it just like you do xo
