  • I'm "done" with significant others... :) but if I had one, I'd be upfront immediately.... my son is a huge part of my life.. if they can't handle that, then they are NOT worth even a moment of my time.

  • My husband came around to visit my cousin and he met my son. I didn't let him be "involved " with my son for about four months. He went to the park with us and out to ice cream. My son called him by his first name.

  • I don't think you are a single mom if you have a SO. If you have a SO you have someone helping you.  I decided to not be involved with men, (in general) they take more then they give and I needed all I had to give to my kids. It was a good decision and I've been single over 20 years.

  • Gaill that is crazy! I am mostdefinatly a single mom, and have been since day 1! I live alone with my son and I don't have help - just because you start dating doesn't mean you become not a single mom! *I* take care of my son.....
