Being a mom is hard. But, being a single mom is even harder. Not that I am single, although there are many times here lately where I feel like it. When, Bryce started back with home health, we really thought that our lives would be "normal"again. Whatever that is. This, however, is so far from the truth. Out of the 7 days of the week, Bryce is maybe home 2-3 nights a week. I do not know how single moms and dads do it. I am most definitely not cut out to be a single mom. I really hope that his work life gets better because if it doesn't soon, we are going to have to make some changes. It breaks my heart when the kids ask for dad because they haven't seen him in 2 or 3 days. (He usually is gone in the morning before they get up and they are asleep by the time he gets home at night). Especially Sara. She is such a daddy's girl. I am thankful that Bryce has a job. Please don't get me wrong. I just wish he was home a little more.

Before I was actually a single mom I used to say I felt like one, but trust me when I say it's not the same. You still have a partner there to share the burden. He's out earning and providing for you. He might not be there physically every day, but he is there for you to provide support and comfort (I hope! lol) Thankfully he has a job too. It could always be worse. I'm not trying to come down on you...just reminding you to appreciate the blessings you have, even if they may seem like burdens.
