I would have to agree that it is hard. But i look at it this way having a partner is basically like having another child in the house. You have to cook and clean for them do their washing and whats worse is that you still have to get up early in the morning to the kids because hes gone back to his teenage roots and finds sleeping in is a good way of getting out of chores. I love single life and being a single mum. Why? well i don't have to answer to anyone. i raise my children the way i want to and i instill into my children values and beliefs that i grew up with. My children still see there fathers one on a regular basis and the other when he feels like it, and although they dont like going sometimes i feel their fathers need to be recognised in there family circle and the extended families that come with it. YAYA TO SINGLE MOMS WE ARE FREE.

Yes, it is the hardest job on earth, and one could have ever imagined the challenges of being a mom, but... It's getting through those weeks when we think we can't make it, then getting through those months, then those years.. One thing about a woman, a mom, we are miracle workers and by the grace of God, always seem to pull through.. We, You will be all-right...

It gets easier as long as your head is up and knees bowed.  I'm a single mother of 2, 14yr and 4 yr olds.  As a single mother my children have inspired me to keep my head up with pride in myself and them.  If they see us carry this weight of being single mothers it will encourage them to succeed at the are obstacles they will later face in life.

How true! But we hang in there and keep at it.  Financially draining but very rewarding when you get a smile!
