How do I raise my 2 young sons alone???

So I am pregnant with my second child right now. I am almost 6 months along and I am excited about his birth. I just wonder how I'm gonna raise 2 children alone... I wonder if I am a bad person for having another child without being married or, at least, being in a stable relationship. I honestly think I am cursed... I'm not trying to have a pity party or anything, I am just hoping and praying that I can be a good mother to my sons and raise them to be good men alone. Has anyone else been in this situation? This is definitely not the way I was raised, as my dad loves to remind me... Does it get easier to be alone? Will I be good enough to raise my 2 boys? How do I explain to them why their fathers are out of the picture? (My oldest child's father is slowly showing interest, but my second child's father is an alcoholic that I truly don't ever want around...) If anyone has input on this situation, please don't hesitate to respond! Thank you, all!

I think you have to come to terms with the fact that you are going to be mum and dad to these boys until you find the right man to settle down with. It is hard to raise kids alone, there is no rest bite until they are asleep at night.

You just have to have a good routine that works for you and stick to it to have happy kids and try to make sure that they do not miss out on that rough and tumble stuff that a dad would normally do.

Other than that take one day at a time and dont expect to achieve everything you want to. The housework can wait! As long is you are happy then your boys will be happy to.
