Any single moms of 4?

Elizabeth - posted on 09/09/2011 ( 1 mom has responded )




Hi. I'm 23, and I have twins who are 2 1/2, one that is 1 1/2, and a little surprise on the way. I am also single, work full time, and live on my own with my kids. I don't know any single moms my age who are in the same situation. They either live with their parents, or only have one child etc. etc. My children's father left while I was pregnant with my third, and just recently came back into the picture, but he barely helps. With my kids all being the same age, sometimes they can be such a handful, they drive me to tears, and I'm really scared that having a 4th child will be too hard. I don't believe in abortion, and my income is fine, it's just the stress, and constantly feeling like I never have time for me. Is anyone else in the same boat, and how are you handling it? Please no judging, 2 of my children (not the twins) were conceived on birth control, and I consider all of them a blessing.

Wow! I know how annoying the 'you must have your hands full' comment is, but w/ you it's sure true.

I am also a single mom, but I'm 34 (almost 35) and a single mom of 3... Twin girls who will be 10 in December and a 3.5 year old boy. I've only been single since the day my son was born though. Honestly, I wouldn't have survived my twins infancy/toddlerhood w/out the help of my now ex, so you're kind of my hero. ;) I know that probably doesn't help much, but I just wanted to offer a word of support/encouragement.
