 I loved being a single mom when my oldest was little.  We developed such a close bond, that now she's an adult with kids of her own, she is one of my best friends.

mine is, I like making the rules for my home, I love the bond that dd & I share since we've been on our own pretty much her whole life, I love looking around my house & seeing that everything I have I got on my own, I love showing dd that as a woman you don't have to depend on anyone, I like not having to pick up after & take care of a man. I love going out & doing my own thing. I like leaving dirty dishes in the sink if I want. I like making what I feel like eating for dinner. & the list goes on. :) being a single mom isn't so bad

For me, what I love about being a single mom is that I have such a close and strong bond with my boys that I am not sure I would have if I were with their father. They talk to me and they know they will always have me here. I never knew real love until I had my children. They have taught me far more than I could ever hope to teach them. No matter how hard it gets, and it gets pretty hard sometimes, I dont go a moment without acknowledging just how blessed I am to be their mother.

I like how close we are. I'd love it much better if we didn't live w/ my father.

I love ALL the aspects of being a single mom and I wouldn't change it for anything. I always have liked it. There is no one to have to consult when I want to do something with or for my son. I make all the rules and consequences. My son and I have an amazing and close relationship. I am in the minority where I like being a single mom.

I agree that its the bond. My son and I are very close. I also enjoy the fact that I don't have to include any other adult in financial decisions right now. Now when the time comes when I do, there will be no complaints from this girl. Lol.
