10 Things You Don’t Know About Being a Single Mom
- You have to have at least 2 jobs to make up for that absent second parent’s paycheck to survive.
You have to learn how boy parts work so you can explain to
your son why and tell him, “don’t worry it’ll go down soon”.
- You learn new skills that you never had an interest in to save money…like haircuts.
Every person that said they will help and would love to help babysit when your kids were born suddenly disappear and are always busy when you need a babysitter.
Everyone, and I mean E.V.E.R.Y. O.N.E. will have their opinion on how you should raise your kids and what you should be doing.
You have to be good cop AND bad cop.
If you have just 1 child you can take them everywhere fun and not worry about anyone else and what THEY want to do.
You learn that time is precious and there are 24 hours in day that you can use to get shit done. You learn how to squeeze in errands or meetings or play time.
Your children will turn out just like you and develop the same habits, thinking, and traits that you have because you are the sole role model. So personal development is super important to be the best example.
Single moms are some of the most incredibly strong and independent people you will ever meet in your life, so if you know a single mom or run into one please let her know how amazing she is tell her she is doing a great job.
