You’re still here! Score!
Wondering who I am? Like I said, get your snacks and beverages. Get comfy, and let’s go on a ride.
Well, if you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a mom. I was, well still, a young mom at the age of 16.
Remember rule one. Yeah….
Anyhow, married and divorced, I learned just about everything through trial and error. I also had a lot of old school advice and skills passed down to me.
Being a mom to a soon to be 16 year old special needs child, 15 year old, and 9 year old is interesting, rewarding, frustrating, and down right hilarious all in one. No day is ever the same.
As I share stories, tips, and just craziness with family and friends, the same question comes up:
‘How do you manage?’
Normally, I just say, I just do. The more I thought about it, that was a lie. I have a system to somethings, others I just roll with it. Why get pissed? Doesn’t change anything. I do get mad, but I try to reserve it for the right times.
Still with me? Yeah boyee!
Biggest lesson so far: make it ok as much as possible. Sometimes it’s damn near hard to, but as cliche as it sounds, there is a silver lining in every strom. Trust been through enough of them to the point I laugh with crap hits the fan, wall, and the carpet.
We buckled in yet? It’s going to be a Willie Wonka of a ride. Might even challenge you to what you find to be normal!……
