I've been a stay at home mom for the past 5 years. I did go to school part time for a few semesters but I didn't finish. My son starts kindergarten in the fall so I was planning on going back to school full time. Well plans changed since my fiancé and I broke up. I'm living with my parents now..they have two extra rooms for me and my son. They're glad they can help and they like having us here..but it makes me feel SO guilty. I just got a part time job..I'm making enough money for us..but it's still not enough to get an apartment. I like that in working part time because I'm going to go back to school full time. But it will take me 3-4 years to finish school & I DO NOT want to live with my parents that long.
What do other single moms do when they're trying to work & go to school? If I did both full time I would never see my son. I've seen that ruin many parent/child relationships and I refuse to do that.
