you might do everything like us single moms, but your children have there fathers around.
like even when your having the worst of days, even to take 5 minutes for yourself, you can get that.
with us single moms, we can't

I love this! I'm Cassie and I'm definitely a proud single mother. My son, Calen, is five months old. I love being a single mother because I get ALL the attention from my baby boy. I can make all the decisions when it comes to raising him. I don't have to worry about my son's father staying with me just because we have a child. Yes, it's frustrating and grueling and sometimes I find myself wanting to beg for help but it's so worth it to me. I like being my son's one and only. He doesn't need a father when he has this much love from his mother.

Well, I am married but pretty much a single mom. My husband is gone 20 days minimum a month. When he is home it is a fast visit. me doing his laundry, him sleeping. Getting groceries to send him back out again and maybe we get one day as a family to do something. The way I see it, I am a single mom with the perks of a married mom. I get my time and space with him out of my kool aid, I make the family schedules and he just sends home the paychecks. lol That is onery but somewhat true

Not always. My friends that are single moms, go out more than I dream of. I don't always have my husband around. I would love 5 min to myself. I don't remember the last time I peed alone. lol Wouldn't trade them though.

This was us goofing around after dinner tonight! Kelli, Maddy and Nate. Although leaving is one of the hardest decision I have ever made, I am immensely proud of where we are now. They are happy, healthy and we are doing great. Honestly for me one of the things I take great pride in is making something from nothing. We had nothing when I became single, and I was adamant about keeping us together. I shared a twin bed with these kids for a year. A space heater and a bed. I would do it over for them in a second.

oh I'm not comparing, I could only imagine what you ladies go through. I was just saying that some of us still have to do everything. :)

"Everything" is subjective. I don't usually engage in these pissing matches, or I try not to. A lot of women that claim to do everything simultaneously wait for a check to come. :lol:

Not to me. I don't get child support. I have, sporadically throughout the years. I just find a big difference in doing "everything" when you're married/committed and actually doing it all. Some single moms don't even do it all. Like I said , subjective.

Honestly, I dont' consider someone a "single parent" if there is a shared custody agreement. My friend was bitching about how hard it is to be a single mom. Her kids are with her ex husband 3 days one week 4 the next on rotation as a custody agreement. I was like STFU, you have at least 3 nights 100% to do what you want to do with no worry. There are parents out there that have their kids 24/7 and no partner to co parent.



My husband is gone alot. I mean alot. I would kill for a 3 night break sometimes from my kids. Not because I don't love them. It is just nice to recharge once in a while and not be so stressed out when trying to parent. I am a SAHM so litterally, I have at least one with me 24/7. I was appauled at her gripe session. lol
