THINGS LEARNED (OR NOT LEARNED) FROM GROWING UP WITH A SINGLE MOM AS AN ONLY CHILD

  1. Boundaries: peeing while mom is showering is both time efficient in the morning and makes for real quality talks
  2. Expectations for a date: dinner for 2 is default and dessert understood
  3. Cool mom status: Drinking coffee at a young age every morning with mom is cool until college and anxiety
  4. Social circle: your mom's best friends are your best friends
  5. Feminism: women are warriors
  6. Sexism: my dad is a jerk
  7. Overall: wouldn't trade my family for anything else
