HOW TO BECOME SUCCESSFUL AS A SINGLE PARENT

Whether your a single parent by choice or chance, there's levels to this! Single parents are like super heroes, the hail you and they will nail you, so always make sure you DO you and love self first.


Have a positive outlook on life - This step applies to anyone in any situation. As a single parent you will encounter many challenges, struggles, and joys. Facing and going through these experiences might change your outlook on life, either in a positive or a negative way. Keeping a positive attitude is key in becoming a successful single parent.



Be patient - patience is the number one rule when it comes to kids. Don’t worry about the little things like dirty hands or dishes; you will get to them. You want to be able to spend all the time you can with your child/ren playing, teaching and learning in a positive setting.


These steps I have taken and continue to take as a single parent. Single on financial matters and all responsibility of the child. So working is a must and time is more than money. I have so many other responsibilities and I feel guilty for the time it takes.


I will update you on my story, I hope you share yours in the comment box below.

WORK & PLAY CAN IT BE DONE?

Being a working single mother it is very important to balance your life with work and play. It's a must that you create cash flow and stay above bills so work in definitely about of the equation. Now play, it can be so many things, a hobby, social events, basically things you enjoy before becoming a parent. These things make you happy you have to fit them in so you don't lose yourself. Work on a scrapbook, write a play, get dancing lessons. Just do something that makes you feel good too.

Our children watch us and the environment we place them in will influence their growth. As I always say happy moms make happy babies. Be happy !!!!

HOLIDAYS ARE A COMING

This time of year always excites me. The change in weather, the new winter styles, the spending of money and the earning of it. I especially love the holiday cheer. It's the best time of the year.

This year for thanksgiving I plan on having everyone make a dish and trim the tree after dinner. What a way to get into the holiday spirit and burn off calories right?! I plan on finishing my shopping by the end of the month. Once I get all my Christmas shopping done I can focus on my baby's birthday bash!!! She's be three this new year.

As the year comes to a close and everyone is getting ready to celebrate the new year, I will be be preparing to throw the best party since last year lol.

Last year thanksgiving was great I visited a few people I have a feeling it will be pretty busy this year since I have many houses to stop at. Her Christmas was very nice as well! Her birthday party tho was awesome we did Yo Gabba Gabba! This year we will be bringing Strawberry Shortcake to an indoor playground called Billy Bees. I'm SOOO excited and I'm getting a great deal on the party as well!! Best of all I don't have to clean up after!!! Yay!
