  • I'm not a single mom but sometimes I feel like I am. I have twins & their dad works all the time so I always do everything myself. I use to get really stressed out all the time because it's horrible feeling so alone with 2 kids & I don't really have a great family to call for support & his family is not much help. My grandparents are great but in their 70s & can't really keep up with kids. My grandmother said something to me that I'll never forget & think about everytime things get crazy. Kids will not be kids forever, it is only temporary. Messes can be cleaned up at anytime, they don't go any where. Don't stress the little things because in the future you'll want nothing more than the good memories you've made. When u get stressed out put the kids some where safe for 5 minutes and breathe!! I don't know if this helps but I get over whelmed all the time & it helps me sometimes. Do it how u want cuz u can't go back. good luck

  • Let me know when you find out. Lol. Single mom or not there is going to be stress , that just comes with kids. They are worth every minute of it though.

  • There is no such thing. Just take one day at a time. "HUGS"
