mom 1: Do you let your kids know about your personal issues, like weight, drama, etc?
mom 2: Well I'm a single parent so yes I do....
I saw this(above) type of response on CM
Or this is my moms favorite...
I say: We are trying to not have to use daycare because it's a lot of money and we can balance our schedules so one of us is always home.
My mom: Well I was a single parent so you had to be in day care.
Or this one is common amongst the moms groups I have been to
mom 1: I buy organic as much as I can, at least for my LO.
mom 2: Well, I'm a single parent so I can't afford organic foods.
Not trying to make fun of single parents, it's a whole other challenge when parenting, but I hear it being used as a reason for matters totally unrelated to status in "parentage"...ie the organic foods example
why not just say: I dont have the money, or LO's dad doesn't help
