There are many reasons being an only parent sucks, there are also many reasons it doesn’t but it’s always over holidays that the short comings are sort of illuminated.
Mothers day is coming up and of course it’s one of those lovely times when I’m reminded that if I want a gift I’ll have to go buy it myself where as friends have that someone who will help the lil one get em something whether or not they are still together.
It’s not a big deal. Just another day really but hearing and seeing all the mothers day prep and goodies really does sting a little. Guess I’m just feeling sorry for myself this week. Next up is fathers day, another hurdle stone to get over, another stupid holiday that will elicit feelings of sadness due to Fysh not having one of those around to buy ties for or make silly popsicle somethings for. But hey, I’ll get over it, I always do.
