night as my husband and i were cleaning up 3yo puke in the middle of the night, i said a prayer for single parents. i recently saw an instagram post where a mother wrote that she wasn’t going to wish or say “happy father’s day” to single mothers because they could never be or fill the role of a father. i am not a single mom, there are days when i feel like i am. i was single myself at the time, and my sister and i have always been best friends, so i moved in to help. he gave me my son and the moments of exhaustion i sometimes feel comes with being a mommy and a 1st grade teacher.
hoped that the baby might "change" him and that somehow i might miraculously not be a single parent anymore. am a single mom of four and of course never expected to be in this position. i was what some people refer to as a sometimes single mom. we are certain that no one is crazy enough to attempt this homeschool thing as a single mom. in fact, it’s often the very first comment i see when i meet another single mom.
it’s not a group exclusively for single moms, but you will find many of us over there as well as many other like-minded moms just trying to live out this life of faith! 10 years have passed, and i'm not gonna lie: single motherhood has been the hardest thing i've ever had to do. i’ve written about misconceptions of being a single mom and balancing everything being a single mom. a grandmother and mom of a single mom, i want to thank you for starting this web page. all single moms out there, the most important thing to remember is that you can do this.
you see a mom someplace who seems checked out, numb, tired, lost and overwhelmed, think of me and my daughter, and give that parent a little understanding.’m a single mum of two each from desperate fathers, unfortunately my sons dad didn’t want to be a dad and my daughters dad could just never step up to the plate and be the dad she needed, i always wanted to be a mum just not so early, at 17 i fell pregnant and had him when i was 18, now that i’m 24 i never had any support from my family or their dads family i didn’t know what i was doing and just did the best i could, when my son was 2 i found out he had autism and severe language delay, that was in 2010 now he is 6 and he’s come a long way, but now in 2014 i have a new child a little girl and still i’m alone doing it. and it's such a cliché, but the time is fleeting, and single mothers should enjoy and revel in it as much as any partnered mother. i have all the respect in the world for moms (and dads) weathering all that goes into parenting young people on their own, day in and day out. truly works in mysterious ways, i was google searching “lonely single parents” and this link was not even at the top but i clicked anyway.
