Broke-Ass Mom Birthday Wish

My birthday is coming up (no, it’s not my 1/2 birthday as this photo would indicate) and people keep asking me what I want.  Apparently, I’m difficult to shop for – the problem is that all I want every year is for people whom I care about (and it’s a

Broke-Ass Mom Survives a Travelling Partner

With my husband travelling quite a bit lately, it’s got me thinking how does a Broke-Ass Mom survive without her Broke-Ass partner?  (I also think about all you single parents out there, and every day I have a new found respect for you, really, you should all be proud of
