Knowing, learning, laughing
Two things that have gotten me through singlemamahood are knowing I’m not alone in my situation (knowing, however, that no two situations are alike) and knowing how to laugh — at myself and/or the circumstances. I was trying to think of what to write for my latest Dinner for One column and decided to share a story from my first week of being officially on my own. Six years later, it still reminds me to keep laughing and to keep things in perspective — eventually, anyway. Living near a pharmacy doesn’t hurt either.
