Hi. I am a single mom of a beautiful 3 year old girl. I am also a first year nursing student in a new country. I traveled with my daughter. She goes to daycare when I go to school but I find it really difficult finding a balance between being a mom and a student. Everyday, I have to take two buses to take her to daycare and then take another bus to my school. After school, it's the same thing again. By the time, I get home, I am very tired and then I have to cook, eat, bathe her and get her ready for bed. I always fall asleep with her in bed and so I cannot get any work done during the week and on the weekend I cannot relax and spend quality with my daughter because I have lots of assissgnments piled up, laundry and tiding up. At times, I really want to send her to my mom but I feel that it is my duty to care for her and I really love having her around. Is there anyone in a similar situation? What did you do and how did you cope with everything? I need some support everyone around me is telling me to send her to my mom but I love having her around and she is happy with me.
