So, I am a single loving devoted mother to my 4 yr old beautiful lil boy. I came across an idea that I should be friends with more single mothers, so we can help each other. My days are filled with spending so much time with my son. Such as, getting him ready for school, working, homework, my homework, playtime, dinner, bath, bed. My routine is great for the both of us, but I have been single going on 4 years and feel like I want some me time. Time for me to seek a potential father figure for my son (even tho I am super mom, and he already is the love of my life) but my single friends are always telling me I need to get out more. I thought to myself maybe they are right, it has been long enought. i asked myself am I stuck in this perfect routine, this comfort zone, that I  will never get out of because I created it to comfort me and my baby boy? The answer is yes, i won't, unless I reach out to other single super moms that are as cool as me :) and want the same. if we get to know each othe, let our kids get to know each other and share babysitting maybe one weekend out of a month to enjoy ourselves by swapping. It doesn't mean we are bad mothers weare just trying to balance single motherhood with a social   life( which I have not had for 4 years) nows the time ladies. Lets do this. Help each other!

Welcome to the group.

I don't need a babysitter (my daughter is almost 16 and my younger son is 12 so no need at this point) but I think finding another single mom to swap child care with or go out with once in a while is always a good idea.

There is nothing at all wrong with going out and having fun!  I go out almost every other weekend when my girls are at their dads.  I go to the bar with friends, or out to dinner with my sisters, its coming up bbq season so Ive got a couple of those lined up in the next few weeks.  I would much rather go out and let loose than sit at home and miss the girls and be bored.

Hi and welcome to the group.   Even though we are moms that are single we do need a life for ourselves.  My daughter is able to take care of herself when I'm not around.  I have fun by doing the things I love - like running mini-marathons and going to political rallies.   Things my daughter won't do with me! LOL!
