yes, yes, yes, yes!!! I totally agree with this! I'm a single mom going to school full time. my son's biological father has never even met lo. I get ragged on for not working AND going to school full time AND being a mom to my lo. Oh and keep in mind the state WILL NOT pay for daycare for moms going to COLLEGE- I've tried doing both but I like making dean's list and I love being with my son even though it means being broke as $h!t. I've finally learned that people will always have something ignorant to say, especially if they have never had to face the kind of choices a mom faces every day. Love this post!

Where were you 4 years ago when I ha my daughter?! I know this now from experience... No matter what you do you can't win! But then, I was constantly in tears because of something someone said. Glad someone put this out there. Do you mind if I steal it and put it on my Facebook?

So true. I try not to let others views define me but I'm human. Like today, I wore a coat those morning as did lex. However she took it off in the car bc she's still in a car seat. When we got to Wal-Mart, I didn't make her put it back on since it was really that cold. I felt like I should habeas walked across the parking lot, telling everyone why I (still) had a coat on but my 2 year old didn't. Lol
