It's no secret that I am a newly-single mother to four beautiful children aged 5, 8, 10 and 12. My ex-husband would tell you that we split custody evenly, but the truth of the matter is that I parent the kids about 80% of the time. You see, I am a waitress and I work evenings. It works well for my family because i can spend the days taking care of the kids and their myriad of needs. I can pick the kids up from their dad's house in the morning, while he goes to work, and then return them to him at the end of the work day. See? Win-win.
