Officially being a single mom is a new adventure for me.

However, anyone who has been married to someone struggling with addiction or mental illness can attest to the fact that I feel like I’ve been a single parent on and off for a while now.

And just before the moms start shouting, “Would the real single moms, please stand up?”

Yes, I’ve been a single parent before.

And yes, being married to an absentee parent or one who requires intensive physical or emotional care definitely qualifies me to take on the title again whenever I feel like it.

Having some experience in this whole juggling act does make it an easier transition in some ways, but that doesn’t mean my day is peachy.
