By: Mia L. Hazlett 11/6/2014 Doing the single mother work thing is getting old. But just because it's getting old, it doesn't mean I can stop. There's a household to support. There are kids who need clothes, and get this...they want to eat too. The thing is, this wasn't my plan. I hadn't planned on… Continue reading Week”ends”
By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/7/13 My Darling Daughter, Aww babygirl, you’ve suffered your first broken heart. I pray to God above, that it is your last. Because I was once your age, I knew Lost One would come one day. From the first time he spoke to me, I knew he wasn’t right for you.… Continue reading Your Broken Heart
By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/6/13 Dear Lost One: There is a reason you are no longer in my daughters' life.

By: Mia L. Hazlett 4/27/2012 Unfortunately kids don't come with directions and you don't have to have a license to have one. A stupid person can go ahead and have a baby.

By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/16/12 The Window Wait. That's what I call it. Sitting by the window waiting for what I know is not going to happen.

They fear getting in trouble with whatever they are being confronted with. Is there a… Continue reading Honest Liars
By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/15/12 My youngest has coined a made-up word for me, "Meaniac." Whenever she doesn't get her way, I'm a Meaniac. Okay. I'll take it, it means I'm doing my job.
