Welcome to our site!  I’m Kristin.  A single mom to my sweet and lovable little guy, HJ.  I am also a foster mama, and love having a house full of little ones.  This blog talks about my adventures as a mama, a single thirty-something women, and everything in between.

We live in Iowa with our large and lazy dog, Tyson and the occasional fish. I love sharing all my wild and hectic life stories.  Thanks for stopping by!

    I’m not going to lie, I stalked your blog for a good 2 hours before commenting. I just kept reading more and more and I probably cried a billion times. Your experiences are so close to mine it felt like I was reliving it. And, as crazy as it sounds, I am actually really happy about finding you. I am not alone. You are not alone. I cried myself and him to sleep nearly every night; I coslept not out of convenience, but because I never wanted him to feel as alone as I did. When I cried immediately after he was born, my mother asked, “Are those sad or happy?” And honestly, I wasn’t sure. A little of both probably.

    My son has been cranky all day and I’ve been frustrated trying to get things done on the computer, so while I tried him for a nap I came across your page. When he wakes up, I am going to hold him and we’re going to eat as many grapes as he wants and watch 2000 episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

    • Thanks for stopping by! I originally started the blog to find people in a similar situation, I don’t know single parents! I am glad you came across my page, hopefully we can help each other with the crazy challenges being a single mom brings!
