I would really like one of these badges some days or maybe just to get this message to someone in particular who doesn't seem to understand. It is seems it is much easier to make really big interpretations about someone (yep that would be me) based on knowing just a snippet. I like being an independent Mum, it is much easier and harder all rolled into one. There are good parents and not so good parents in relationships and doing it on their own. I do try and get up every morning and do my best.... but maybe it is easier for some not to see that. I read an interview with the maker of these badges and she said that these are her top sellers. I find it a little sad. So I'm not the only one who is a little misunderstood.

On a much nicer note, the girls and I have had a lovely crafty weekend. Lots of bits and pieces made for the upcoming BIDM.

Always really humbled by independent Mums doing it on their own, hooray for you :-)

Bringing up kids is the hardest most challenging and rewarding experience of my life. I couldn't imagine the extra challenge of not having someone to share the workload. I take my hat off to independent Mums who wake up each day and do their best. My grandmother brought up 4 kids on her own, the eldest was only 7 years old when her husband died. She wasn't perfect, she has some regrets, but did the best she could at the time. She's been a wonderful mentor to me. Her children love her so much and appreciate all she did for them.
