Now, things are completely different–I enjoy being a single mom.
So what happened? Well, it could very well be circumstance–I now have a support network of neighbors and a strong, tight group of girlfriends who are single moms. Or, it could be because I have adapted and accepted single motherhood. The shock has worn off and I have accepted this as my life. I have also realized that even if a man enters our lives, things won’t magically be easier.
Regardless, I do know the single moms with little ones–babies or toddlers– have it the hardest.
