There is no doubt that being a parent, particularly a single mother, is the hardest thing I've ever done.
It's extremely rewarding to be a mother to my son, but it's also tiresome to care for my family on my own. However, with God and my amazing support system, I have been able to make it and decided to create Simple Solutions for Single Moms Series.
Starting March 4th, I will be posting simple household solutions for single moms. These solutions are things I've learned through trial and error during my 6 years as a single mom. With time and money at a premium, it's important that you create systems and routines to create a sense of stability for your child and sanity for you. More often than not when I read blogs or books written for moms, there's an assumption of a husband or partner in the home who can help. It's definitely time for something specifically for those of us parenting alone.
If you are a single mom reading this, I hope you will share your thoughts in the comments. My hope is to create a community where we can learn and grow together. And if you have ideas for issues you'd like for me to address, feel free to email me. I realize that each of us have our own experiences and needs. Whatever your situation, I pray that you find this helpful.
