do you ever get so overwhelmed and just think the easiest thing to do is give in and let him do whatever is gonna keep him quiet and occupied just for a lil bit?!!! i do, i get that feeling for about a half a minute and say yeah right!!!!!!! being a mom is exhausting but it is so rewarding too!!!!!!

Quoting Shara:



thanks.  i think my biggest challenge is patience!! but as soon as i can get that mastered it will be something else.





hi, i have been a single mom for a year, with my 3 young children...6,4 and 2 !!!



I know that patience is an ART and i'll take all of my life to accieve that as i am not as perfect as Jesus...(Happy easter)



I try to let go of the pressure of being miss super-women perfect!



otherwise i'll be sick or feel deception and that is bad ffor all of us, our relationship with our children is most important...not the cleaning of the house...or laundry....



A good Key is to developpe the ability to ask for help, for the cleaning stuff....And to take time for ourselves to do what  we love...



Enjoy!

Wow...props to you! My husband and I lived apart for about 2 1/2 months while he was changing jobs and we were in the process of moving to another state, so I got a little taste of what it's like to be a single mom, and I really admire any woman strong enough to do it! I know that it made me a better mom, and I'm sure it'll do the same for you...and your baby will grow up admiring you for it too! =)
