Nice things about being a single mom :)

August 16, 2008 4:07am CST
Being a mom forced me to grow up...and being a single mom forced me to grow up even more. Being a mom takes a lot of patience, understanding and love, and if you're a single mom you have to double these things up. I can say that I did not intend to be a single mom, with all the gossips spread all over about me and all the expenses that I will bear all alone, but sure thing there are a lot of nice things if you're a single mom. One thing's for sure you have your child's love 100%. You also have the happiness of being a mom without the headache of being a wife haha :p What are other nice things you can think of for being a single mom? Share now and you can make a single mom happy when she reads your posts :)

I am a single mother myself. I do not have to entertain husband or waste time taking care of him. I have lots of freedom and do have to worry about husband getting jealous. My child has my full love and attention.

You never have to worry about disagreeing with anyone else about that way you raise your child. You can dress them as you please...which is always an issue with my fiance and I. He hates what I put on the boys and I feel the same about his taste in clothing. When it comes to punishing them, they cant run to daddy to get out of trouble, which my boys always do. Or if i tell them they cant do something, the minute i leave for work they are doing exactly what I told them not to do because I forgot to mention it to their father before I left. You are 100% in control...thats a nice feeling!

Well, I am not a single mother because I want to get married properly and have children afterwards. But I congratulate you for being so proud of your role in life right now, having children is the most wonderful gift one can ever received from God, considering that many women longed for a child and just cannot make it because of many reasons, you are so lucky to have one. Well, it is being said that motherhood is the most expensive job in the world because the salary is pure love so keep it up and take care your child.

Hmm, well, see, I am married adn i hate being married. I hate how he is insensitive to me and expects me to do what i have to do and I never get any appreciation or conversation from him.. This stress from my realationship causes stress between my children and I , because they sense when i'm upset and this makes them upset. ect... i am very much concidering being a single mom sooon. I know it will be much harder but wont the rewards of not having a insensitive husband around to ruin every happy thought i ever had, make the motivation much better? do you have any suggestions or advice for me since you are from single mom land??? I appreciate it alot chicka. have a good one.
