I don't have to dream about a handsome 4-year-old boy and beautiful 2-year-old girl who call me Mom and shower me daily with love, hugs, and kisses. That's my reality, and my heart is full.
She takes her files and laptop to her bedroom, stops to throw in a load of laundry and then heads to the kitchen to start dinner. After dinner, she prepares her kid's lunches for the next day before helping them with their homework, which takes all of one and a half hours.
I want women to know to just freeze their eggs if they want to. And for younger women, take a minute when you're in your 20's or 30's and just freeze them if you think having kids later in life is important to you. Because life happens - and sometimes things you think will line up, don't.
I don't care to worry about what the future holds because worry will only take away from the happiness of today, where I can relish in the magic of a 23rd birthday and say I am so proud of my son.
We are all just faking it and hoping no one notices. Everyone will have an opinion and there will always be advice given. When it comes to life, it's best to listen to all, take what you can use and toss the rest.

Parents can, and should put the needs and desires of their children to seek out and connect with half siblings and/or donors, above their own fears. This is the ultimate sacrifice that parents make for their children. It is also the greatest gift we can give to our children, and to ourselves.
Early this year, after ending a 20-year relationship, I found myself joining the ranks of single mothers. With three children who were 2, 5, and 8 at the time, I was honestly scared.
I grew up with stepparents and siblings who had different fathers, and there was no shame or confusion among us. But there were awkward and sometimes embarrassing moments when people tried to figure us out.
Some parents are relieved to sign the divorce papers and feel like they can finally move on with life. But their children face a different reality. Legal finalization is often the beginning of the difficult family transitions they must handle.
You can't expect people who haven't been through it to know how divorce feels. They can sympathize, but they won't truly understand the grieving process that accompanies the death of a relationship.
I don't think there's a good age for divorce. I think it all sucks for the kids. The only thing a divorced parent can do is do their best to have the best divorce possible.
