I started my family young. I wasn't prepared and honestly, I'm still not. Even when I decided to face a new change/challenge in my life and really become a "Single Mom", I was less prepared than when I started. I promised them that I would never compromise myself to live an image of what a perfect family looks like. My daughter has asked me if I'm seeing anyone and I tell her, "If he's good for us, he'll come eat with us." If he can't blend well with us, he can't sit with us...
No sir, this seat is being saved for....not you. 😊
The kids and I did as we usually do...EAT. We tried out Mia Bella which was offering a Mother's Day Brunch Buffet. Over the years, I've grown less impressed with buffets but, Mia Bella remained above the norm and had a waitstaff serving out the food, which was also covered, as opposed to people hovering over open trays and poking at what they may or may not like.
As I enjoyed my meal I pondered on what I signed up for being a mom...
1: Being asked Why for EVERYTHING
2: Over explaining EVERYTHING
3: Cooking at odd hours
4: Being annoyed
5: Being worried
6: Learning good hiding places
7: Spending more than I need
8: Arguing about Cartoons
9: Playing cab driver
10: Sharing my space
12. Loving someone more than myself. ❤
I don't know what I am doing as a parent, or even as an adult. I am also pretty sure these two do not know what they are doing as kids being reared by me. Luckily enough were are here raising each other.
