Well, I finally decided to join this community.
MySpace has been showing me ads everywhere I turn, so I finally gave in.

A little bit about me.
My name's Christina

 I have a beautiful [almost] 6-month-old baby boy named Timothy James (TJ). He's the most amazing thing that has happened to me. He makes me laugh constantly because he's just so... FUNNY.

His dad is a part of his life, but not a part of mine, if you get the picture. We were together for a couple of years, and as much as I wanted to stay together with him for our son, it just wasn't the best situation. He's a great dad to TJ, and I'm very thankful for that.

Right now my son and I are living with my mom while I work part-time and go to school full-time. It's a pretty hectic schedule, and it can definitely get to me sometimes. Which is why I think I came here.

A couple of my friends have children as well, but not many. A lot of them are still in the set of mind that they still have a lot of their own life to live first.

It's just the older TJ gets, the more scared I become. I'm so terrified of not being a great mother (as I would imagine most new mothers are). I don't handle stress very well, and I don't have a lot of patience. I know God gave me the title of being a mother for a reason, and I guess it's because he thinks I can handle it, but sometimes I question that.

 I have no one to turn to, because unless you're a mother, you really don't have a clue what we go through on a daily basis. The father of TJ, Tim Sr., definitely doesn't have an idea. I remember in the delivery room while I was screaming about contractions, he was complaining about his back and neck hurting because he slept on it wrong during the 14 hours of my labor. Don't even get me started.

Anyway. This was my introductory first e-mail. I'm hoping that I'll be able to find some moms that I can relate with. :-)
