National Single Parenting Day!


Image result for national single parent day

  Hello everyone!  We are not dropping a Tip today but letting everyone know today National Single Parenting Day! I am however remarried but for many years I was a single parent and want to reach out to everyone because every year more come up.

     There were a few tough years Quinn and I made it work and we had fun doing it.  We went out and created adventures!  There were times when I found my self alone in my house just wondering how bad it was or how quiet it was.  However we came around and if you know any single parents out there just see how they are doing.  I don't plan on making this post very long just saying there are so many out there and being a single parent is hard, very hard...  So send them a TXT or a call and see how they are doing.  You never know you maybe the one that goes over and just gives them some time which is something they just need...

    To all the single parents out there, take one day at a time! Go slow and just relax, spend time with your kids, spend time just alone with some thought or a good book.  Remember if you love your kids they will absolutely love you back.   This also goes out to other family members or friends who are there because the parents can't be there.  Remember being a parent isn't just giving life its raising it...

There are a lot of single parents out there and unless you have even been one you have no idea the struggles they go though.  Lots of love to the single parents, and to the people in their lives helping them grow.

Always Remember,
You are Never Alone...

A weekend to heal...

    Hello all!
I hope everyone has been having a wonderful year so far!  For us it's been really busy.  I know I haven't posted nearly as much but like I say, enjoy life and post later.  I wanted to post about the past weekend and I know I am behind on a lot of what we have done!

     This past weekend was a quiet one, Quinn had a bad double ear infection so she didn't end up coming over till Saturday morning per she was in so much pain.  That day we just stayed in and rested.  Watched a few movies and just hung out!  We ended up making some Taco's for dinner, which we all love!

     The next day Quinn was feeling much better so we took some time to do some cleaning and organizing.  She worked hard on her room as did we.  We got the house picked up and cleaned and then took some time to play some board games!  We let her pick per it was her weekend.  She has been working on her counting skills as well as game play.  Kids have to realize they need to play fair and be kind in the making.  We had a lot of fun and she ended up winning to!

     Quinn was cute, we talked to her Friday and she felt bad about not coming over.  We both told her not to worry and that it's better if she just goes to bed and rest.  Honestly I took what my ex said and didn't let it get me upset.  I know she wasn't feeling well so instead of trying to get her to come or fight we just have to relax and know what's best.  We did lose a night but its ok...  That weekend Quinn kept saying how bad she felt for not coming and how sorry she was.  We just kept telling her to stop worrying and that we just wanted her to get better.  We know she wants to come visit and now on Sundays she doesn't like leaving, but when she gets older its something she can address.  It stinks for now but we have time....

     I honestly miss posting about the family events and plan to step up more as it gets warmer out.  We have a bunch of things to update you on and I will be doing so, along with my Tuesday Tips that I have been slacking on!  Either way we have just been enjoying life and as she gets older the memories grow too.

We hope you all had a great weekend!

Always Remember,

You are never alone..


Here we are just enjoying the day with some board games!
