Just started this, looking for someone to talk to about being a mother and working full time. Someone who is dealing with the same things as I am.

Hi Madeline, I am a full time student and a single mother to a 22 month old daughter. The over load of managing on my own with her and having to use my weekends sometimes for school work and exam studying can be much at times but she is my biggest joy and I am so proud of both of us.

Nice to meet you Madeline. I am a full-time working mom of Lisa and David. Lisa is 5 year old and David is 4 now. It's so exhausting being a full time but being a mom is the best experience in this world. Full time job is more challengeable but more often its manageable.

How old are your kids madeline? I have a 15 yr old and almost 13 yr old daughter, and an 8 yr old son. I work fulltime, but fortunate to have a SAHDad! This site is super useful for advice on frustrating situations! Also the e-letter CoM sends offers great content, in fact, that is how I was linked to this post!



Welcome! Add me if you like!

Hi Madeline,

I am also new to this site, I have 4 kids, 16,14,12 and 5 years old. I am a single mom and I work full time nights at the hospital nearby. My biggest challenge is getting enough sleep. With 4 kids in 4 different schools, I don't get much sleep, let alone much time to myself. Its nice to be able to talk to other moms in similar situations.

Hi Madeline. I have a 6 year old autistic son (he will be 7 this Sunday -- how time flies). I work full-time and my husband is a stay at home dad. It is challenging at times but it makes it all better when I see my son's face!

Hello,



I am not on here too often usually if I have a question or if I see something interesting to read. I work full time at Cord Blood Registry and I have a 3 1/2 year old and one on the way, due in Jan. Working full time for me is definitely a challenge especially with the fact that my husband is a fire fighter and not home every night. But there are always stories and conversations that make you feel more normal when you need to feel normal. :)

HIII! I am a working mother as well. I have a 2 year old and a new baby (12 weeks). I actually just ended my leave and returned to work yesterday. I work a full time job and also teach a class at a local college one night a week, as well as see a couple of client at my private practice one night a week. (I'm a therapist). This is going to be a hard week for me as I am transitioning back to work and really missing my kids, but so far it is going ok.

Welcome Madeline,

I'm sure you will find lots of support and new friends on this website. I'm a full-time single mother of a 10 year old little girl, I work full-time, in school getting my MBA full-time, and I've recently taken on the task of a Girl Scout leader.

Remember sometimes mother hood can be chaotic especially dealing with a demanding job. If you need to talk in-box me. I'm here :)

Welcome!!!! You will find lots of great support here! I have two boys, 7 years old and 8 months old. I worked full time up until my oldest was 5, was a paralegal so know what it's like to have kids in child care, etc. I still work just from home now since January 2011 which has it's challenges but of course more flexibility. So great to have you in the community! Look forward to chatting with you!!
