Hi! I'm Carla. 

I'm a single mother of two children. My son will be 25 and my daughter will be 10. 

I work full time in a daycare, monday through friday. I work with infants and young toddlers.

I am active in my church. I teach preschoolers every  sunday and one on wednesday a month.

I also babysit on the side, usually saturdays.

As you can see my days are full.

My daughter is in GIrl Scouts and I am enrolling her in gymanstics.

My son is currently unemployed. He lives with his Gram, but will stay with me when he needs a break and some mommy time :) .

I very rarely have any "me" time because I never have anyone to take my daughter for a while. It's always been me and my children. My daughter is my shadow.

99.9% of my time is with children, be it mine or work related. I have about 8 hours a week of alone time before I have to go to work. That's two 4-hour days of no child.

I have no social life. No dates or going out with friends. I work three 10 1/2 hour days and two 5 hour days.

It's long and hard.

Is there anyone else out there with no social life and a single mom? How do you handle it?

Hi Carla, welcome to cafemom. I have no social life, but it's because I'm raising a great grandchild, and I don't have the energy for one, lol. Everyone needs som "me time" though, so check out this group and see if you can get some tips. Good luck.

Hello my name is Jacky. I've been with my boyfriend for about 2 years. He has a 10 year old son...I have no children. Before I continue, is this website only for step mom's who are also mothers? I don't have any kids

Hello, Jacky! Welcome! I believe that if you are helping raise a child that you are considered a mom here. Are you involved in raising your boyfriend's son?
