First of all, the whole website for Butterfly Moms is just beautiful! I love the idea of moms as butterflies and loved the article I read about being a single parent vs. being a parent who is married and whose spouse is out of town.
Until 10/10/10 I had been a single parent since 2/13/04. It was tough, even with the support I had from friends, family and my child’s father. Raising a child in a single parent home is hard work and being a good parent in a single family home is even harder. Julie Cole, the author of the post, seems to know and understand the difference between the two.
As soon as I moved in with my husband, life got a lot easier. Now there were two chauffeurs, two chefs, two bedtime tucker in-ers.
Julie brings up a good point to ponder too. A divorced couple that have equal time with their child and seem to do the work at 50/50, are they still ‘single parents’ or are they co-parenting parents that happen to be single?
Check out the website for more insightful articles and questions to ponder!
