Time Event
11:45a
Most of my parenting life
has been spent as a single mom. I had my first in '91 and divorced his dad in '93. I was alone for many years until '98. I got pg and had my daughter in '99. We finally married in August '99 and we had a blow out in October '99 and that ended that. I am used to doing it alone, but it does get lonley and hard sometimes. And Today is NOT a good day.

Current Mood: depressed

I have been busy as usual. I seem to always have to have something to do. I am happiest when life is so hecktic I can barely maintain. A gluten for punishment I suppose. I also need to mow my lawn ( a random thought as I stare out the window). Michael needs tubes in his ears it looks like due to the ever increasing amout of ear infections. I will probably try and get this done before school starts, the one advantage to being a nursing student is I know exactly what will be done and how much time he will need to recoperate. I sort of always resent being the only one who gets to stick it out in these situations. I would do it and always will I love him dearly. It would be nice to have a helpful partner in these situations. Parenthood is not for people with commitment problems. You don't get days off, well okay if your my ex you get all the days off you want, but I have to do the job of almost three people. Anyway enough bitching, I'm not really I love my son and will do whatever it takes. And if his dad won't so be it. I am washing sheets again!!! So you are really not done with potty trainging untill they quit wetting the bed. Man I wash sheets all the time. I thank god more the mattress cover. He is actually playing with his blocks now, He is so cute he sings to himself as he plays. It is just the gushest thing:) Then when they toss stuff at you or call you Shit head it is really hard to be mad when they can be so darned adorable:) Yes you will find I am a dotting mother. Seeing as how right now My life is school and him (Man I need a life). I realize how non-existent my social life is when I know all the words to all my son's Veggie Tale movies. I feel old. I am only 27, and already I am content to sit and have coffee (okay for me tea or hot chocolate) and visit with my best friend. That's all for now I think he quit being cute and has started to confuse the poor old dog.

I came across you folks and thought I might join in. I am a single mother of 2 kids. One boy age 6 and half and one girl age 4 and half. Their dad and I are divorced. He lives less than 5 minutes away yet never calls and cancels visits often. They seem to prefer staying home with me on weekends when it is his turn. I have a serious significant other at this point and we are discussing marriage. The kids adore him and they get along GREAT. I say significant other as "boy friend" seems so young lol and I am almost thirty. I left their dad when the kids were pretty small. I was just tired of his crap. I begged him to work with me to make things right but he wasnt willing to do much of anything, after all he thought thngs were just fine with me doing all the work and him doing nothing. I was reading some of the posts on this LJ and I can sure relate to most of them. Everything from spanking to getting rid of that baby belly. I will be sure to check back often and see whats new. I am a full time student. I am going to be a teacher. I start my teaching classes in the fall. I am sooo excited. My significant other is a medical student and has to spend this year in another city. So that is one more stressor in my life. Did I mention we have 2 other members of the family, Mozart the lovebird and Griffin the kitten. Anyways I look forward to getting to know all of you. Katie
