A letter from Athena

Dear Single Parent:

In 2006, I got divorced and found myself single with a toddler. I was moving to a different area of town where I knew no one, and had no help nearby. Add in the fact that I was newly self-employed… and I was staring down a big, new situation. 

As years passed, I grew adept at changing hats from nurturing mom to primary breadwinner to home handywoman. Sure, there were moments when I looked at my son, turned away and cried, because I had no clue what I was doing. Or maybe it was just exhaustion. Yet there were other moments –  like when he finally learned to tie his shoelaces – that felt like a lottery win. And although I know all moms feel the burdens of motherhood, there’s a big difference when you’re doing it on your own and juggling all the other demands of life.

Regardless of how you became a single parent, the challenges we face have many similarities. There’s never enough time. When we do find a few moments, although we want to be having fun with our kids and making memories, we tend to fill them up with some long-overdue task or chore. Sometimes, there isn’t enough money. Even when there is, we tend to find a way to spend it for the benefit of our kids. 

The Cove aims to give you extra time, efficiency and a better all-round life as a single mom. To speed up the must-do aspects of your day so you have more time to have fun with your kids or to take care of yourself. It’s a specialized resource for single parents offering mom-tested information and trusted partners to help you when you don’t know where to turn… like when the sump pump, furnace or car quits.

I believe we moms need to look out for one another. This website reflects that, providing opportunities for those in need of help, and those offering it. I sure wish it had existed when I began the single parent life. 

I’d love to hear from you on what features are working for you and how we can keep improving The Cove. If I can offer one piece of advice I would tell you to stop and smell the roses once in a while – for yourself and for your kids. I’m trying to do a bit more of that myself.
