When you can multitask better then a career waitress, or the highest paid ceo.

When you look at people like they are crazy, BC they think you're crazy for making,75$ stretch for groceries :-)
When you get too go out to a party for the first time in over a year and end up leaving at 1045pm BC your feet hurt from heels, you have to pick a baby up, and your sleepy.....then still brag for a week that you got to stay out late with out a kid :D
And my personal favorite.....being excited that you're off randomly on a Thursday BC one kid week be at school, the baby will be at his sitters, and you get to run errands all by yourself!!!!!!!!!!

.....textbooks are scribbled on
.....there are toys in your purse
.....almost every movie you own is a cartoon or the child's favorites
And
...... You become the most selfish person in the world for only doing good for yourself to give your best and your everything for your child/children.

I'm the only single mom in my sons class. There is one other couple that is divorced but mom is remarried & dad is pretty involved. I realized I'm a very single mom when I went to dinner with my son at a friends house & the mom told her son he had to ask dad if he could do something. The only time my son asks his daddy anything is for money.
I never go out. When my son does stay over at his dads, which is rarely, I'm so excited to be alone & I usually get things done & go to bed early & sleep in a little. I don't really have friends to go out with anyways. They couldn't handle me being a mom 24/7.

When you have to ask your own dad to take dd to a father/daughter dance. That's seriously the first and only time being a single mom ever bothered me.

When you have food poisoning and are simultaneously sitting on the toilet and barfing into a garbage can and your dd still wants your help.

When you ponder getting yourself a pair of shoes for a week, get them, and then spend the next week pondering taking them back because you feel bad for doing something for yourself
