Single parenting

Raising my first one through adulthood alone and my youngest until age 3 by myself was wonderful in some ways but not in others. Because their father never had any interest in them, I never got a break like I might have gotten with visitation involved. But, I loved being the only decision maker. No disagreements about what should be done, just me. I really liked that. The hardest part was when my oldest asked why he didn't have a dad. I told him that his daddy wasn't sure he could care for him so he asked me to do it because he loves him so much. Sometimes being a parent does require a lie....
