Solo parenting: the act of raising kids, alone, for an extended amount of time. Not to be confused with single parenting. Solo parenting is typically the stay-at-home parent with a spouse who works weird/long hours. Second or third shift families. Military families. Oil rig families. Medical field families. Any situation where there are two active parents, but one of them is away for work for an extended amount of time and the parenting burden falls more heavily to the other parent.
The boys went for their 3 and 5 year old check ups last week. I always schedule them on the same day, to save time and get it all done at once, plus they appreciate watching each other go through all the same examinations at the same time. We got some slightly disconcerting information about Connor this time.
Today I had my first real experience dealing with a bully child who's parent was about as effective as a spotlight at high noon on a cloudless day.
I've decided to start a little mini series within the blog. My "mom-fessions" will mostly be my way of venting any frustrations or pent up emotions with parenting. Today's episode is all about my baby growing up and not being a baby anymore. *insert weeping emoji*
