Working and raising a child on your own typically consumes all of your time. With having so much to take care of, it can seem like days are never long enough to get everything done. Having been a single parent to J for over 10 years, I had to learn to manage my time if I wanted to get things done in an effective and efficient way.
Summer is a fun time for kids. School is out, the days are longer and they get more time with their friends. It can also be a time for boredom to set in as their routine is turned upside down.

What is one thing that your family does weekly, together? Ours hosts a game night on Thursday! It’s a tradition we’ve carried on since Jason was tween.

And then there’s Mama’s Night In aka adult-only board game night.

I’ll never forget the first time you picked up a baseball bat, you were 3, they were teenagers. You walked right up to them in the middle of their pick up game and asked if you could play. Your confidence was ten times bigger than you were and you showed it.
