There is a very good chance that being a single mother is not at all what you think. Here is how I really feel about being a single mother on Mother's Day and every other day of the year.

Here is how I really feel about being a single mother on Mother’s Day. *Sidenote: This post features the opinions of a woman who, at this point in life, only has five years of experience with raising one girl. Just in case you feel that makes a difference in what I’m going to write. This past Mother’s Day was my first one as an official single mother.

Summit Grill is a casually chic eatery in the Waldo neighborhood of Kansas City, MO. The menu highlights American classics, weekend brunch, and happy hours.
