Friday Kidblogging

Yesterday was a challenging parenting day. Somehow I've gotten to where I have no local support network, no friends I can call when I need help. As a single parent, I needed someone's help yesterday so that I could take one kid to a party and leave the other one home. But I had no one to call.

We managed okay, the three of us. But I want better than okay. I need better than okay. For me, but especially for my daughters.

I hear your frustration. When my children were young I had no support either. It was quite draining. I hope you get a network of friends/supporters lined up soon. It makes life more bearable.

Thank you for understanding. It helps.

Oh sweetie. Wish I still lived in town. I would be happy to be your support network.

Thank you so much, Libby. I wish you still lived here, too.
