Where's all the single mommas at!?

I am a single mom and I hold down a full time job and house and car. I have a 3 year old son and it is not easy but I make it work. I just want to say to all the single mommas out there doing things on their own good job and you are strong lionesses. and to all the other mommas out there likewise because it takes a strong woman to raise a child.

  • Way to go for you!
    I'm also a single mom, I work full time and we have our own place and car. I take care of everything, but w/ a lot of help from my Mom while I'm working, I couldn't do it without her!

  • I'm here. I'm working full time, taking care of two tween/teens AND my elderly grandmother. Talk about the "sandwich generation"!

  • Right here! I've been a single mom since I was about 6 months pregnant. My ds will be 18 in February & his "father" has never been part of his life. I had him during my senior year of high school which I finished, I also finished college & became Director of Human Resources for a private special ed school. I own my home & I have a 2007 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder w/no car payments! It's been hard work every step of the way but I wouldn't trade a minute of it! My son is awesome!
