Disclaimer: I am not a single mom :)
My man is on day 3 of overtime and I already feel like a single mom. It takes a little bit of time for us to get used to his new schedule. He is working 12 hours a day 6 days a week right now. It will soon be 7 days a week. This post is not to complain about his schedule. We actually really like it. Minus the time part. Overtime is awesome and we're thankful for it but goodness gracious, I miss my husband and Kate misses her daddy. She didn't get to see him yesterday and all I heard today was "dada, daddy, dada, daddy". When he called to check in on his girls today she took my phone and ran around the house with it up to her ear and had her own conversation with him. :::hilarious::::
To all my real single moms out there. You are amazing.
Seriously. I don't know how you do it.
I know that at the end of the day my husband will be home and in two months we'll be back on a normal schedule. I don't have to worry about working because he provides for us.
But you, you work to provide for your child(ren), you come home and make dinner, clean the house, grocery shop. I've got nothin' on you. Everyday this week all my single mom friends have been on my mind and I applaud each one of you for making your child(ren) your priority and working hard to provide for them.
I'm sure I could do it if I had to but to be honest I can't picture myself working full time and coming home to take care of kids and doing all the domestic duties that come with it. I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
Girls, you rock and you are awesome. Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.
My countdown is on: April 18th baby!
