Becoming a parent changes you in the best way. You grow as a person, and sometimes find a strength you never knew you had. Parenthood also comes with its struggles though. Whether you’re a single parent or married, taking care of the kids, going to work, and keeping up with housework can be a lot. I know that for me, having to spread myself so thin has been one of the hardest things about being a single parent. As a single mom I’ve had to be both mom and dad. I’m the provider, the teacher, the chef, the maid.. all the things. The biggest thing I’ve been working on is finding a balance with it all. I know that I’ll never get it 100% right but my main focus is trying each day to learn and grow.
