I give all the credit in the world to single moms. They have to do everything everyday with no help. But when you have a husband who works 40 plus hours a week or one that is gone more than they are home isn't that kind of like being a single mom? I know you still have the support of a spouse but if they aren't physically there you are still doing it on your own right? I know a girl who is a single mom who has a job but still lives at home with her parents. She is in her 20's but she boasts about being a single mom when she has her parents helping her 24/7. A woman I am very good friends with has a daughter and her husband has scoliosis and 98 percent of the time she is doing everything for her daughter because her husband is in so much pain he physically can't do anything. I don't know I guess I see how my friend struggles taking care of her child and her husband and never complains but the other girl brags and thinks she is so much better because she is a "single mom" but can pretty much depend on he parents to do whatever she needs.
** I'm sorry if anyone got offended by this post. That was not my intention by any means. I am married but I have seen and know single moms and honestly I feel like they are super moms. Trust me I see them and think dang she's making me look like a rookie LOL. I don't realty think just because your married but your husband isn't there 24/7 makes you a single mom but they do know some of the challenges that come with it. But someone like the girl I was talking about above even though she is single she still gets all the help she wants and needs from her parents. No I'm not saying its wrong but to me it just irritates me how she claims that she is all alone and doing everything on her own which is completely untrue.
