I have a 16 month old son that I'm pretty much raising by myself, due to my husband being away at work for long periods of time. He doesn't even have a regular schedule like 2 weeks on and then 2 weeks off. He's just gone for a week here, a month here, 8 weeks here. Sometimes I get him for 15 hours, sometimes a week, sometimes a months. I never know. I just go with the flow of it and try not to let it stress me out. I was just curious how many others out there are like me. Raising their children pretty much on their own, but not totally by themselves. Single moms with benefits! I was also curious, what are the hardest things you experience and what kind of tips you would pass along that make life bearable for you and can help another mom in your situation.
