New young single mother of 2

Posted by   + Show Post

Hey my name is brittany, i am 22 and have two beautiful baby girls 2 yrs and 5 months. I have just recently became a single mother again. I was with my two yr olds father for 6 yrs and once i got pregnant he split n hasnt helped with her at all. Then i reconnected with a friend that i had know for 13 yrs and we ended up gettin married and having my second child. But then things went south and he was unfaithful and started using drugs so now i am 22 with 2 girls going through a divorce and supporting my girls on my own. Sometimes i feel as though it is to much too handle that im too young to be dealing with all this but i wouldnt trade my girls for anything they truly are my whole world. Any one else going through this??

Hi Brittany! I'm a single mother of 2 as well. My daughter is 3 and I'm pregnant with my second. I was in pretty much the exact same situation with both daddies! I'm 22 and it's definitely tough being a single mommy so young!

Hello Brittany!! I'm going threw something really similar i am 21 going on 22. I have two girls ages 3 and 1 and I'm single. I love my girls but it is so so hard being a single mom. They have different dads as well an neither of them do anything to help me out with the girls an it makes me so stressed out and depressed. I've been thinking of going to counseling to help me cope but I feel like I need to learn how to deal with this on my own and plus I'm struggling financially but it's good to hear that you are making it work. It makes me feel better about my situation.

 Awww thank you! My favorite thing? I bought the boys toddler beds...they have cribs and mattresses but after the ex and I split up I put them in storage. My niece put the beds together for me and I was able to pick up the mattresses Saturday so for the first time in AGES my babies slept on a mattress..not on a pile of blankets in the floor or in a pack n play. I was THRILLED! I sent a friend a picture and a text message that read...

cost of todder beds: $65 each

cost of monthly storage unit where much needed crib mattresses were stored: $95 a month

cost of FINALLY have my babies sleep on THEIR beds and not blankets or in pack and plays?? PRICELESS!!!!!
