September 14, 2010 --single parent

September 14, 2010. 6:08pm PST. ISO 100. Shutter 1/30. Aperture f/8.0. Manual exposure, no flash.

Being a single parent is like balancing on one leg.

Smile all the time because that makes everything okay, even if it isn’t.

Shoulders back, hands on hips, ready to take on what comes your way.

Eyes wide open, hearing sharp, so you can keep double watch on your child.

No shoes, because even if your smile is from fantasyland, your foot is firmly in the ground of reality.

–and sometimes being a single parent is like balancing on one leg because the other one is fractured.
