I’m on Mamalode today with a piece called “26 Little Celebrations.” It’s about the force that connects us as a family even when we’re apart. Interestingly, today is the first day that we’re together again, and that’s cause for a BIG celebration.
Here are a few other reasons to celebrate:
- I solo parented my boys – and didn’t lose my mind (or a kid!) – for 26 days.
- I read a book! It was “Us” by David Nicholls, in case you’re wondering. It took me nearly three months, but I did it.
- I read and finished a book smack in the middle of 26 days of temporary insanity single parenting!
- This one might sound hard to believe, but I ate in a restaurant last night for the first time in 26 days. True story. Man, that sushi tasted good. The company was great, too!
If this experience has taught me anything, it’s that I can handle way more than I give myself credit for. Motherhood makes us capable of unimaginable feats. Think about that the next time you’re in the weeds.
But first, read my new essay on Mamalode. Here’s the link:
Thanks for reading and sharing and commenting and all of that good social media stuff.
