A Brief Blog Profile: You And Me Kid!
by Thomas Hynes
You And Me Kid! is the story of a single mom. To be honest, I don't know how married couples raise kids. So I really tip my cap, applaud, admire and all around respect the work of a single parent. One thing I like about this blog, and I like a lot, is that the author moves past the circumstances of how she became a single parent. She's in the situation. This blog answers the "what now?" question.
And really, who has time for the past when you're raising a kindergartner? There's probably not time for much of anything. It's no surprise that blog author, Kristi, uses the word "frazzled" to describe herself. Like most parents, Kristi has to contend with meals, school, and the prospects of pets. But she also has other issues to encounter. For instance, in this post she describes the role dating plays in her child rearing. And in this post, she she describes the conversation her son and her had about his father.
You And Me Kid! is not the story of a perfect parent in the perfect circumstances. But I got news for you, perfect people and perfect circumstances don't exist. Again, my favorite part of this blog is how Kristi doesn't make excuses to how she found herself single. Instead, she looks lovingly to her son, and plots a course forward.
