“Look, Mom, a Christmas tree! I like my Christmas tree. A pretty Christmas tree. Look, Mom, a Christmas tree!!!

That’s pretty much how the conversation went… I’m just glad he was happy!!! He was so foul one morning that I put him back to bed and told him when he was going to be more pleasant I’d be happy to get him up… 3 tries later, her realized that Mommy meant business.

Solo parenting is not the most enjoyable experience that I’ve ever had.  When there are the super high… there’s always the… damn… I wish John was here… melancholy.  When he’s in his stray cat, terrible twos, or bad mood… I just don’t even want to deal with him.  It’s bad when you want to go to work to get away from your child… but I have those days.  “Goodbye… here YOU deal with him… good luck… let me know if I should pay you more money…”

But, today he was his normal happy self… there will be more good days and there will be more bad days…  that’s life.


About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
