Often I talk about how being a single parent has its challanges. But today I want to talk about the rewards, those moments when you know you have done something right.
We ran the Santa Shuffle 5K this weekend with our running group. DS ran it in 25 minutes and came in 11th overall inlcuding the adults - he's 12. I ran it somewhat slower..lol. But there he was at the finish line to give me a high five. I asked him why he didn't go the car with BF or go in the building but he said "no way mom, I wanted to be there to cheer you on."
It snowed yesterday and out of the blue he just got up, put on his snow gear and shovelled the driveway for me, without being asked...gasp!
There was a show about a family that got divorced and the kids had a hard time with it. DS looks at me and says "when you and dad got divorced I didn't find it hard at all."
Makes me feel that through all my missteps and stumbles I have made some great strides. What a great kid. So single parents and not single parents alike how about sharing some love and moments where we have done things right. Lets celebrate the good times.
