Love Single Mom

Embracing a New Chapter

It was never in my goals to be a “Mature Solo Parent” aka single mom, but one thing for sure is that I am

“Determined to be GREAT!

I can and I will.

Watch me”

I am happily divorced and on a journey to rediscovering my dreams and goals.  I was blessed with three amazing children who remind me daily to stop and appreciate the small things.

My oldest son is a graduate of Penn State University.  He lives in Pennsylvania along with the majority of my family. His biological father died when he was 5 and I became “Solo Parent” for the first time.  I love all my children, but there is something about my first born.  I had him at a young age and I often say we grew up together.

My youngest two are the result of my marriage that ended in a divorce. I often refer to our trio as “MJB” (mommy, Jaiden, and Bryce), “#my2SideKicksJandB” and “#makingMemories.”

You will often catch us around Houston and surrounding cities at various family events and attractions. I love to travel and expose “#my2SideKicksJandB” to new things and experiences.  MJB is famous for packing a snack, putting Kidz Bop on and hitting the road.  So you just never know where we will end up.

The main reason I started this blog was because being a “solo parent” is very challenging.  However, if you “change the way you look at things and things will change.”  And even though this is my second time being a solo parent, I am older and look at solo parenting in a new perspective.  I have learned to change the way I look at things to bring clarity and discover new options to solo parenting.

I also believe that you encounter certain trials in your life to help others.  So by me getting the courage and strength to share #myTrialMyTestimony I hope that I am giving a solo parent somewhere the courage and strength “TO BE GREAT”.

And remember what Jill Churchill said,

“There is no way to be a perfect mother, but a million ways to be a good one”
