Week”ends”

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.

Man Up!

By: Mia L. Hazlett 2/5/14 “Get some balls”.  I here this all the time.  I'm not male bashing, just once again trying to wrap my mind around this “new age” man.  I’ve sometimes heard this combined with the phrase, “stop acting like a girl”.

The New House Game

By: Mia L. Hazlett 1/13/14 What do I hear when I hear my children play House and use their imaginations? I hear them use their imaginations when it comes to role-playing the man in their “house”.

To My Daughters’ Boyfriend

By: Mia L. Hazlett 3/19/13 Dear Boyfriend, I like you, I really do.
