A newly single mother of three sharing the humorous stories while trying to stay sane.

What's the biggest misconception people have about single parenting?

I think one of the biggest misconceptions of single mothers is that we are all scorned in love. I think we've just learned from our mistakes and only acceptable men would make the cut.

What's the most rewarding thing about being a single parent?

Realizing just how strong I am. When I decided I could no longer put up with my husbands adultery the thought of raising 3 kids alone scared the crap out of me. I had been a Stay at Home Mom for most of our 13 year marriage. I never dreamed I'd be able to support my family without his income. It's a struggle every single day. It's rewarding to see just how hard I can fight to protect and care for my children. Two years ago I would never have believied I would have made it this far.

What's the most important thing being a single parent has taught you?

That I can do ANYTHING I put my mind too. They can try and break me but I just won't stay down for long.

Is it hard being a single mom?


It's hard being a single mom. However it's hard being married as well. The important thing to remember to ask for help when you need it. Find a good support system through friends and family.
