I’m a single mom of 2 teenage sons who insist on growing up. I’ll be the first to admit that initially I was all for growing up and getting out but now I’ve come to realize that it’s not that simple. Currently my sister is going through the process of ushering her twin daughters off to college but I was fortunate enough to witness the journey its taken to get them there. My sister has helped them with studying, prepping for SAT & ACT, college tours, college applications, and now scholarships. It has been extremely demanding and all I can think is “oh shit” I’m next.
When I was their age all I dreamed about was going to college. My mother had never been, actually no one in my family had been until my sister. Needless to say my mom didn’t know the first thing about prepping for college. As much as I would love to take this time out to be selfish and start pursuing my dreams, I realize this is actually the time they need me most. So when there are days when I want to blog about shallow fun or silly topics, I don’t because instead my brain is drained from work and trying to find my sons the necessary resources to put them on the path of success.
So because this has been my main and only focus for quite sometime I figure why not just blog about this. Perhaps some readers out there can help me, give me some leads. Maybe we can help each other. They say it takes a village so I guess I’m asking you to be my neighbor 🙂
