Sorry for the rant.
Anyways. I was a SAHM and I'm really just not sure how to do this. I never thought I'd be a single mom. My mother was a single mom and I watched her my entire life and always thought "this is sooo hard for her. I don't want to ever have to do this alone." Well here I am. Suddenly alone. I've joined this group mostly for advice. My mother, as much as I love her, is wayy to close to the situation to give me objective advice and my friends are all either happily married or getting married. It's a very lonly feeling. Thankfully although he's turned out to be a crappy husband, he's still a great dad and my kids see him every weekend. Thank God for small favors right? On the other hand, I still have to see him every week and NOT punch him in the jaw. As much as that would make me feel better, wouldn't be a good thing to do in front of the kids.
