My name is Monique, currently living in Sarasota, Fl. I am a single parent of 3, and I often feel it’s all that defines me. Have you ever seen the bumper sticker that says “I am a single parent, what’s your super power?” I get it. Although, there are lots of technically non-single parent I know that deserve the same accolades. I have occasions were I can miraculously have three kids in three different places at one time or my favorite is when I miraculously make money, I don’t have, appear for unforeseen circumstances (all very legit and respectable, I promise and will share). Those are the moments that make me feel a bit super human. Unfortunately, those are very exhausting moments. My enjoyment of them only comes in the form of looking back with the thought, “how in the hell did I pull that off?” Mostly, I feel like a chicken with it’s head cut off. Sometimes, I feel I must have a guardian angel (Love you Grandma, XO). I don’t have anyone to pat me on the back and say “good job, everyone was on time today.” So, I write this blog for my own sanity. I plan to share, how I get things done and find a way to enjoy them. I write this so that later I can look back and see that I was a person of substance, despite the chaos. I have learned to survive physically, mentally, and somewhat monetarily. Maybe I can help someone along the way.
