Single Motherhood is not for Me

Posted by Mandy at 2:23 PM
Clayton has been gone again all this week, and will be home tomorrow. Whew.. I cannot wait! Our week has been much better than the last time he left (aka the week Samuel broke his arm), but it's just so exhausting! I catch myself watching the clock thinking that he'll be home to do this or that, and then I remember that, nope, it's still just me. I'm sure this is building all kinds of good qualities in me... none of which I can think of at the moment. I guess there does come a sense of pride to know that you single-handedly are keeping 3 kids alive. How good of a job I'm doing at keeping everyone alive.. well, that's debatable.

I am so happy that tomorrow is Friday!

I am not sure how long he is gone at a time...but I am kinda going through this now b/c Clay has been home with me pretty much 24/7 for 3 years, and I had gotten pretty dependent on him. Now he he is working weekends and evening shifts, and it has really been an adjustment for me!

Hang in there girl, I am sure you are doing a great job!

I've done it and I tell you I did okay then, but my parents helped so much I can't take credit. But it's not for me either!

I can tell you from experience single motherhood is rough. I've been there, done that. Unfortunately some people have a misconception of Mothers that stay at home and think their job is easy. However being a SAHM is one of the tough job in the world. Sure there are plenty of rewards but it takes a strong woman to be able to do it day in and day out. With or without her husband there. SAHMs need Fridays too! You're doing good Mama!
