Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I don't see what is so special about being a single mom.

I've seen 3 different moms on my facebook share this.  I think it's ridiculous.
You are not a better mom than anyone just because your baby daddy walked out.
You are a good mom because you take care of your child, raise them with love and compassion etc...

Thoughts?

Women become single moms due to death and divorce too. Ex-Husbands aren't "babies daddies".

I do think it's harder to be a single parent, but I find that quote a little irritating. I can't be a bad ass mom because I'm married?

Fine.  You aren't a better mom solely because your husband died or walked out.

 I agree with this, but also OP. My "baby daddy" didn't walk out, I kicked him out. I don't know about everyone else, but I definitely fucked up and made really bad decisions. As a result, I'm now a single mom. I made my bed, now I have to lay in it.

Edit: There is nothing special about it. If anything, it fucking sucks! LOL

No, its saying it TAKES one to do that, not that you can't be one otherwise.

It's a lot more work without a partner. Being a single mom is not glamorous .
