Does it ever get easier?

I'm a single mom to an absolutely adorable 4 yr old boy. I love him more than words, but I question my stength on a daily basis. First it was the sleep deprivation that comes along with a new born, than colic (when his father decided it was too much for him) which lasted 3 months, than teething, seperation anxiety, terrible two's, potty training, "no", temper tantrums, overnight visits to the ER, taking turns being sick and now a custody battle (which I have all confidence will turn out in my favor) I'm not venting or complaining as I think all those things made us who we r today. I'm just looking for some hope that one day this whole single mom thing will get easier?

I'm going to be blunt. No, it really doesn't get easier. It gets different. The battles are different. Some things get easier. Some get harder. It' not just the single mum thing (it's the whole mum thing. It evolves and becomes different with each phase, with each passing year. But I couldn't say it is necessarily easier overall.

I agree with Jodi. No it never gets easier it just changes as they get older. There are always still issues, the issues just change as they mature.
