I love my baby to pieces, I spend everything I have on her. But I'm lonely as hell. Her dad and I split up about a year ago but I haven't dealt with it very well. I miss him and I miss us being a family, and this weekend is the second time I'm going to let him take our daughter for the day (he hasn't been able to in a long time). I spend so much time around my baby that I don't know what to do when she's not around. How should I spend that time? What can I do to get past this dark moment in my life?Answer Question

I am a single mom myself and I love my daughter very much, she is little over a year old, her dad is minimal involved in her life, so it is she and I all the time,Â Honestly, I miss her when she is gone, but I enjoy the time to sleep without the listening ear all night and like you it took me a really long time to get over her dad and there are days I am lonely and miss him but I believe everything happens for a reason so I try to let it go.Â I am not ready for a new relationship mainly because I don't have the time to date, work and be a good mommy and I will not bring a manÂ into her life for him only to be gone, so I have decided for now to be single and enjoy watching her grow up and when she is away I do things for me...although I always end up getting her something anyway. Take each day as it comes and remember

you are not only a mom but a woman too.

And I feel your pain totally. I understand that you didn't think you would ever be a single mom and wonder sometimes how you got here and you look at your child and your heart over flows with love but it is hard. I know and live this with you. I like you have people that believe I am always happy and for the most part I am but there are days that life just gets to me too. You will get through this, just wait, you will look back and wonder how you did it.
