I’m Rosalinde, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I have no pictures of just myself! This is perfectly fine by me – my about page should probably at least include my birth children because they are all about me. I have been separated from their father since they were 2 and 4 years old. Raising them was all about me. I did it all. I’ve been through the Halloweens, Christmas’s, tooth fairies, Easter Bunnies, school field trips, awards … the list goes on .. right into their teenage years. It’s all about me. Then I meet John – who has two boys – their ages are in between the girls so you KNOW there’s a story or two there!
I created this website because raising them on my own was SO hard! It’s still a crazy time in their lives – Alyssa is living in a different city now – 5 hours away – and Ashley recently graduated high school. So, not only was I faced with the end of their school years … now I’m going to have to eventually adjust to the empty nest. I am NOT looking forward to this nor am I prepared. I’m here, online, because I KNOW there are times in a teenage life where you don’t know what to do, what to say, and where to turn … drugs, sex, school, driving, bullying … the constant worrying about these things never end and if you think you have a child who will never have to deal with any of that – you’re living in a bubble. MY kids were never going to do drugs .. haha … stay tuned … it’s a myth … it’s all a myth.
Join the club … the website .. the discussion .. I’m not proclaiming to have all the answers – I barely have any – but I’m certainly here to bounce ideas off one another. Besides, I would just like someone to tell me I’m doing okay … I think I am.
