Parenthood is Frustrating

This is more of a statement than a questions that I wanted to share.

I get frustrated being a single mom, as most of us do. When I do, I try to remind myself how much of a blessing it is to have my son in my life. Friends of mine have been trying for 2 yrs to conceive, they've lost 5 in the process, they are pregnant again and I keep praying for them that this baby will be healthy and happy. So there are days that I look and my little man and think "I'm SO blessed to be your mommy."

  • I was a single mom of 3 with no child support. I feel your pain, but my kids were my everything...still are. As long as we were together that is all that mattered to me.

  • Been there, and I know it's not easy... Parenting is the hardest job on the planet, and the most rewarding at the same time!!

  • It's weird that there are some couples that have trouble having a child when they really want one. I've heard of people stop trying and then they are successful. You are lucky to have a child in your life, at least you are not alone.

  • I was a single mom of 2 for 6 years. Sometimes I think it was easier when I was single. Parenthood IS super frustrating. Right now my DH is deployed & I am playing single mom all over again. Apparently I got used to having him around cause it is definately not easier being single right now!!!
    Good Luck Girl!
