does any one ever get tired of trying to work full time job & raising kids on their own w/o much help or some times any?
Its exhausting yet rewarding. I have 4 ages almost 9-16. Three in soccer, at times I have 6 games in one weekend. Not to mention the practices throughout the week, school and its activities and my work schedule. My ex lives 7 hours away and I have no family in the area so its me, myself and I doing the parenting. Its not easy, but few things worth doing are. I love it, and wouldn't trade it for the world. Watching my kids play, learn and grow is the most rewarding thing I have ever done.
I know I do. I only have one (she's 2) and some days its all I can do not to just burst into tears of exhaustion. I work full-time, raise her, take care of our home and then do some photography jobs on the side. Those days I have no idea how I am going to keep it all together and still keep shreds of my sanity. Other days I feel like I have it together and there isn't anything I can't handle. It all comes and goes, but for the most part I am happy.
i have 5...its tiring most of the time...they are all pretty young still and i dont have the money to send them to sports or anything...we go to the pool bc my mom bought us a pass...we live w/ her, i work part time and i cant do much else...sometimes we go out w/ my bf and do something...i do this all on my own for the most part...they see their dad every other weekend and he on tuesday nights...so i get some breaks but w/ my 5 i am still exhausted...i have had them for the last 2 weeks w/ only about 24 hr break plus my 2 half days of work and i am so tired, i cannot wait for my mini break tonight just to try to destress...but i always miss them when they are gone
I only have 1 little guy, he's 3 and it's been me and him since April. His father has basicly walked away from him, and right now that's best as he's really not stable right now. Some days I really want to just throw in the towel but I keep going for my little man. I work a full time job ranging 45-60 hours a week, I answer phones after hours and weekends for a towing company thats 24 hours a day, and I work a concession stand on the weekends for a local dirt track (saturday nights). I work alot and have very little free time to myself. I recently started seeing a guy and he straight out told me that I work ALOT! LOL But i do what I have to do to keep ends met and my little man going. Im tired I will be the first to tell you I basicly work 24-7 but it is what it is I guess. Hugs momma
It can be exhausting, but I can't complain. My ex watches ds while I work, but he doesn't help financially. It can be tough especially during the winter time when he has sports at least 3 nights a week, especially figuring out dinner.
