Today I realized that a great thing about being a single parent is that you don't have to share the glory when your child impresses people: " She is so smart!"..... " She is very well behaved.".... " "You are doing a fantastic job".... ...thanks... oh really? well I try... thank you.
I realized this today because when I went to pick her up after daycare, I got my first 'talking to' by the staff. My princess had misbehaved - a lot. I felt sooooooooo embarrassed, worried, kind of ashamed and... guilty. It sucked not to have someone to share the blame with!
