I am a single mother who recently had the courage to send my ex and father of my daughter to jail for abuse...choking me. I moved back in temporalily with my parents til I can find an apartment. I n the midst of all of this is my beautiful two year old daughter who is completely full of life and has the faintest clue as to what is going on around her. I am trying to keep everything as routine as possible for her benefit. Hard at times because grandparents spoil her...though I love that they enjoy her so much...thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. I won't lie this is hard. Being single, no job (with my ex i was a stay at home mom.), going to college, and living back at home...gosh darn I even bring up custody or child support to her father. But this too shal pass...right? I am 25 years and fell like my life is falling apart at the seems. On the other hand since I have left my ex...I have never in my life felt better about myself. Someone aid can't remeber who..."taking the first step forward is the hardest, don't look back or you will fall"

I kind of know what you are going through. Good for you! I am living back with my parents now as well since I am recently single with my 4 month old son and it is hard but I know it is for the best. I hope everything turns back around and starts going well for you! Taking the first step forward is definitely the hardest..

Good for you!!! I see too many moms that stay in that type of relationship! You did the best thing for you AND your daughter... staying in that type of relationship eventually would show your daughter that that type abuse was okay, so you did the right thing kickin him to the curb while she is still very little :)
