Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I'm going to be a "Single Mom" for a month :(

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

My husband is overseas for a month. I am used to doing most of the day-to-day stuff by myself for me and my daughter cause he does work a lot, but the house feels so empty already (it's only been two days). Nights are the hardest after she does to bed. I have a new appreciation for full time single Moms... it's lonely!

**edit for all the "ladies" out there that feel the need to pick apart and bitch on every post**

OBVIOUSLY I know I am not a single Mom. I have a new appreciation for single Moms out there cause I am here alone for a month. I have no family or anything around here it's just my daughter and me. I'm not on here for sympathy or anything just saying... I'm lonely already. It's going to be a long month. Yes I know there are people who go thru longer separations than this (military etc) or are single Moms for years.


**2nd edit**

A lot of you are focused on the money issue. He is taking a month leave from work and is gone for family issues. No paycheck or money coming in from him this month. As a result I am working extra shifts. It's not so bad. I make double what he does and it isn't too hard to cover. The reason he works full time and I work part time is because our daughter is young and we feel like it's more important for me to spend as much time with her as I can before she is in school full time. I didn't mention money before because I KNOW that if I did, the comments would be that I am lazy and upset that I am working extra. That is not the case. I hope that cleared things up. I do NOT believe that I am a single mom in every sense of the word. I feel like a single Mom since I am the only one here taking care of our child, the house and all our responsibilities. Please note that Single Mom was in QUOTES.  I MISS HIM. I have a new APPRECIATION for single Moms. That was the whole point.

Wow at all the bitches in here. I mean, wow. I'm not surprised though. Next time just tell them you don't have an appreciation of what they do, and that you work way harder simply because you say so. Man you cant win with these people.

Sheesh people some of you are just plain idiots. She is not meaning she will be an actual single mom. The point was he will be gone for a time and for that time she will 'Feel like a single mom' I think she is smart enough to know she is still married and therefor not technically a single mom. Some of you take things way to literal.

For your information, I'm not interested in reading everyone else's comments. I'm only interested in commenting on your OP.

And don't take your aggression towards everyone else out on me, lady, jeezus. Or do, whatever, you're the one that made the post and can't deal with it lol How are you going to deal with being alone for a month if your post here has your titties all in a twist???

Dont worry about them. They go along with the pity party mentality of the world. I dont get what 750 per month has to do with the loneliness of being a single mom.

Did I? Nope. Not even when I was screamed at, so what's your point?

Taking it out on me when I'm just responding to her OP shows her wonderful character. She's the one that lost her cool, not me. Seems as though actually BEING a single mom teaches one how to deal with adversity.

You seem to have a reading comprehension problem. Did I say you did? No, I said there seems to be a lot of single woman on here who are. Rather she is losing her cool or not because she has repeatedly had to clarify her meaning numerous times has zero do do with rather or not she would be able to make it as a single mom or not. I've known plenty of single moms who got their panties in a twist and lost their cool. This post alone is rampant with them.
