"shout out to all the single parents/still haven't done my taxes"



And I can't quite fully claim this status as I am very lucky to have a wonderful person who picks up my slack when required and its a Lotta slack but still

This shit is so so sooo damn hard.

Like I wanna go running out the house, stripping my clothes off, screaming down the street, go live on a beach, smoke weed and write the Great Black novel but

I can't. I'd be literally dooming my children to a life in the system

(I'm serious ive thought abt this like if I just didn't show up to scoop em one day after school how long would it take for the state to come get em?)

& IMO there are few moral absolutes but deadbeat parents are easily in the top 5. Maybe top 3.

So I carry on. And I'm doing a pretty damn good job but man...sometimes I wanna be like yeah dog I CAN meet y'all for that happy hour on Wednesday! Why the fuck not? Make some top ramen kids! Burn the house down! Fuck it!

But I dont...and instead make a post on the internet with waaaay too much personal info in it instead. #therapy

On another note. Still haven't done my taxes. I *think* between my mortgage, child care, biz expenses etc I should get something back but you never know at this stage

Ive made a hard deadline to sit down next Saturday and do em no matter what. Watch the power go out or some shit.

question for separated/divorced parents: how do u decide to claim ur kid...
Feb 23rd 2015
i'd bet most baby mamas aint sharin' shit.
Feb 23rd 2015
I'd be inclined to imagine that claiming would go to the custodial
Feb 23rd 2015
you're probably right. my premise wasn't clear enough.
Feb 23rd 2015
if you don't have an order custodial parent usually does it.
