Being A Single Dad
Four the better part of 4 yaers now, I have had custody of my soon to be 5 year old little girl. She has been the greatess joy in my life and believe me when I say I wouldn't trade being her father in for anything. With that said, I have found it very difficult to have any type of social life. My friends who have children are with their otter half. I miss the times of being able to participate in conversations with other adults. I am becoming an expert on Sponge Bob and Hannah Montana and my most of my conversations are limited to child talk. I know that there are alot of other people out there in my situation, and I often wonder how they make time or deal with it. Being a parent of a beautiful girl is a full time job, especially when you are doing it alone.
I know that being here for her is my privledge, but I am trying to figure out how to have a little of both if thats possible.
