I am only 22 years old and I have 2 daughters, one will be 4 in Nov and the other will be 3 in Nov. I work full time Monday-Thursday 9:00am- 8:00pm, and I am single parent. Although me and my boy friend live together and he is really great with my daughters, because he is not their father I don’t want him to feel obligated. My girls’ father and I separated when I was pregnant with the youngest; I was tired of the physical and verbal abuse. I feel overwhelmed because I feel like all I do is work and clean up after my kids. I love them so I don’t mind doing my motherly duty but I feel like running away sometime. I really have no one to talk because most of my friends don’t have kids and they only want to talk about parties and events that I can’t attend. How do I meet young moms around me? I would even rather have a girls night with mom’s like myself who understand I have to check on my kids and be back by a certain time. I stop talking to a lot of my friends who think I should pawn my kids to my mom house every weekend so I can party. Please help before I go completely insane.
