Today I am linking up with Kelly on singles mom's. I would have to say I do not feel like a single mom because I have my family's help. They never tell me no when I ask them to keep Ashley for me. They treat Ashley like a daughter. For that I am so grateful. Being Athletic Director is not set up for single mom's. With my family's help I have been able continue that passion.
I like to say that I am single by choice. Ashley is adopted it was a God's doing the entire journey. I am not going to say I do not worry daily if I teaching Ashley everything she needs to know. I do strive to surround her around loving people. I will not lie it does break my heart when she ask about a Daddy. Or I see T-shirts that say Daddy's little princess. Or when its time for the daddy daughter dance and our friends our picking out their dresses.
Teaching middle school and hearing stories of children that come from single parents and the people that have been in and out of their lives. Makes me more aware that I need to be very careful of who I let into Ashley and I lives. In this season in my life I am focusing on Ashley. I love taking her to soccer planet and tennis and just last weekend we went to our first play. I love being a mom and we are a family.
