Just want to introduce myself. I'm Darbi, a 28yr old single mom of one 6 month old boy, who is currently having a VERY sleepless and unusually clingy night (I STILL have not been to bed yet lol!) because of his shots and possible teething. I'm totally not going to go into what he's normally like because I would probably make some ladies green with envy and/or hate me lol!
Right now, as I type this, he is awake for what seems like the 1,000th time tonight/this morning, only sleeping 30-45 minutes, maybe an hour at most in a stretch. He is sprawled across my chest, belly down with his head on my left shoulder. Completely awake, moaning and groaning, its hard to tell if he's trying to go back to sleep or not at this point lol. Ocassionally he lifts his head to look around and "talk". It has been this way most of the night, with him mostly sleeping cuddled in my arms (Highly unusual btw. He is normally very independent and has always put himself to sleep from the very beginning).
So, here I am, signing up for Mom forums at 5 & 6am lol!
He's an adorable, amazing, inspiring, intelligent little guy and I love him with all my heart! He is definitely the best thing that has ever happened to me.
I'm currently enrolled full time in community college, starting classes Monday (1/7) and will be working toward my A.S. in Criminology/Criminal Justice. I'm determined to become fully self sufficient and be out on my own by the time my son starts kindergarten.
Just looking to connect with other Moms (Single, Married, whatever...) that can give and receive support when times get tough. I would really love to make some connections and get to know some new people.
