Being a single mom. I'm always the bad person. nobody understands that being a single mom means that you have nobody else to watch your fucking kids so you can get shit done. In the split second of turning around shit happens. Guess that makes me a bad mom. I went to grab the lawnmower and mind you A was right behind me. I turn around to turn it around and she is gone. I drop everything and go running to find her because we live close to a highway (which I fucking hate I'm about to break my lease to move somewhere else) and she is out next to the highway with a lady saying she was out in the middle of it. Literally 30 seconds from the last time I saw her. I know for a fact she was never IN the highway she was next to it. Yes I know it is dangerous which is obviously why I ran out to fuckingfind her with my search starting in the front of my parents' house. UGH! I'm so sick of this shit. The lady told me I was a bad mom and even though she doesn't have kids that she knows better than to turn her back for a second. I'm sorry this is the earliest I was gonna get off today and already had a warning to cut my fucking grass.

That sucks. How about mowing the lawn when she goes to sleep? Late, but it would be done.

Yea their dad isn't reliable or even able to care for them because drugs are more important and its just like a constant fucking battle. I can't do this shit anymore. I feel like shit. I do everything in my power for the fucking kids. :(

I'm sorry Kala! :( I'm glad A was okay though. I hate it when people with no kids think nothing like that could ever happen to them because they "know better". :?

on the 4th of july my 3 yr old was actually let out by someone coming to the party, and he didnt try and stop him cause he wasnt sure if the kid belonged to the house, so I found my 3 yr old down the street walking with someone that was on a walk, I was LIVID to say the least, but they didnt call me a bad mom...those are fighting words!

That's what pissed me off about it. I fucking turned for a second to get the fucking lawn mower when she was BEHIND ME ! Like really? I'm fucking trying to improve my and the kids' lives but I can't fucking win. I'll never win this ever. It is just another thing that proves that even though BD had drugs and such around the kids he is still a better parent. I can't keep doing this shit. Maybe I should just give them to him.
