I must say parenting is one challenging task yet very enjoyable esp when you see your kids grow and learn new things in life....it is so beautiful that we as parents forget the pain we go through when times are hard. I am a single parent of a 7 yr old. Very active kid and drawing is his primary passion. We do not keep pets in our house but my son would probably like to later on when he is in his teen yrs. I love music and art and I play tennis too. My days are quite hectic. A typical day to me is more or less like every parent, wake up in the morning get Jr. ready and fix breakfast for us and off we go to work and school. After work, I pick Jr. from the day care and may be make a stop or two. On Fridays we get to go out and have fun....that is our "family outing" day; we do Monkey Joes, Movies, Parks, Chuck-E-Cheeses' etc I rarely go out on my own and when I do I get help so I can get my "me time"...don't we all need that? Well, after school and work we normally go back home, grab a snack, help out Jr. with homework and sometimes get to go for some sports practise. Dinner is normally btw 6p and 7p and if we have time we hang out a little and call it a day. Most of the time Jr. goes to bed before I do @ 9p and that gives me time to get ready for the following day and unwind on my day. If not too tired, I may watch the news, comedy or a Movie.
