Random single mom problems

When your child falls asleep in the car and they are now to big and heavy to gracefully carry them to bed. Instead they wake up and think they have been asleep for 10 hours already...

You try to convince yourself that you are a strong independent woman... except you fall prey to the cliche pickle jar problem.

If you don't do it, it doesn't get done. PERIOD! (and PS I do not want to hear married women complain about this. If your partner isn't helping then that is partly your fault for standing for it. This may sound harsh but it is true is 99% of the time, baring a partner with physical disabilities that make it impossible for them to do ANYTHING)

I am just so tired today. All I want to do is take a long nap. I can't though, cause there is so much to do and only a short time to do it without a small person attached to my side.

I'm single and I don't have any children so I can't say that I know what your going through BUT I do admire your strength to keep going. There are so many mothers who are in similar situations that just give up or don't do what they use and use the stress as an excuse.

I usually carry a very suny and positive outlook with me... but that was a hard day.

I always have faith and would not have made it so far without knowing that everything happens for a reason.

I can TOTALLY relate to this post! I am a single mom of two and I have to try my best not to get frustrated when my married friends tell me how tired they are, they have so much to do with taking care of their kids...knowing I'm on my own with 2! Of course we have our good days and bad, but I agree with you that we have to have faith and accept that everything happens for a reason :)
