Happy Father’s Day or As It’s Known Around Here – Happy Second Mother’s Day

Dame’s Rocket near us.

Father’s day used to be a tough one for our family. The kids’ dad and my now ex-husband was extremely abusive and no one wanted to celebrate him. So I came up with Second Mother’s Day. I figured, as a single mom, I deserved two days of celebration for all my hard work. After all, I was doing the work of both mother and father, so why not? Second Mother’s Day was born as a day to honor single mom’s who do all the work of two parents.

Now, I don’t want the single dads out there to feel left out. I have a good friend who is an amazing single dad and every second Sunday in May I wish him a Happy Second Father’s Day (even if it technically comes before the first one every year.) It’s the thought that counts and I treasure our friendship enough to know that not only is he an amazing dad, but a wonderful friend.

So, to all those awesome dad’s out there – Happy Father’s Day! For all those awesome single moms out there – Happy Second Mother’s Day! God bless you all!!!
