Today, I Hate CoParenting (A Vlog)

There are days that test us, challenge us and strengthen us. I have used this space in the blogosphere to share my experiences coparenting as well as providing tips and support to fellow single parents and coparents. I’ll be the first person to share that I’ve made many mistakes coparenting, but one thing remains clear: I will walk through fire and protect my daughter at all costs.

Yesterday I had a shitty day in coparenting land. I feel constantly unsupported and refuse to accept my coparent’s inconsistency as acceptable. So I vlogged about it. Yep, it’s dark. Yep, I’m crying. Yep, I have snot on my face and need a tissue. But. I. Don’t. Care. I’m mad as hell and needed to vent about it.

Every day is a choice. An opportunity to right wrongs, to learn, to grow or to choose to stay the same. The choice is up to each and every one of us. By no means am I a perfect woman or mother. But I will always, always advocate for the best interests of my daughter and protect her from anyone who threatens to play with her heart. It’s a choice I make.
