I don't know how single parents do it. Every single little thing is their responsibility. Every single thing! My husband's been traveling a lot lately, and it's always such a relief when he arrives safely back home, especially when he's been to other countries.
Motherhood is exhausting all on its own, isn't it? But to handle it all as a single parent? The word responsible is almost an understatement at that point. I could go on and on about how every household duty both inside and out are up to that one adult, how every meal, every illness, every care-giving detail (especially when the kids are young) is up to that one parent in charge. But I am tired and I need sleep because today's another single-parent day. How thankful I am that I don't have to do this all the time.
Kudos to all the single parents out there. I can only hope you have a great support system. I know you both need and deserve one.
