Single Mom Diaries – A Quick Check In

It’s been a while since I’ve given you guys a peak into what’s been going on in my life. Being a single mother is one of the toughest jobs you can take on as an adult. Life definitely becomes this never ending routine; You lose track of the minutes, hours, days and weeks. We literally wake up, get dressed, I drop my son off to daycare, drive two hours to work, get off at 5pm or later, drive two hours back home, get the little one ready, workout, eat, shower, go to bed and wake up to do it all over again. The weekends would seem like a break but having a 19-month-old is very tiring and that is where all my energy goes on the weekends. Whoever said 2-year-olds where terrible must have skipped over a year because I swear at the age of 1, my son is a handful. He doesn’t sit still; if he isn’t in the cabinets playing with the plastic bowls, he’s putting a rug over him like a cover or he’s trying to climb all over you. Oh and if he doesn’t get his way he’s going to throw a fit. Maybe it’s just an only child thing but he’s even in the stage of jealousy. No one can come by mommy or he’s going to try to fight you. It’s like I’m off limits to everyone. It’s kinda cute but it also makes me think he needs a sibling to play with. I’m not at that stage yet. I’d love to be married first before I add to my family. Of course that means I need to start actually giving these guys a chance but I come across some real jerks, which makes it hard to even want to give someone a chance. There was this one guy I liked but it took another guy getting my attention to see that he wasn’t even all that into me. Maybe he was sexually but other than that he didn’t take the time out to get to know me one bit. I always went to see him, I was always the first to text and 90% of the time wouldn’t get a text back. I get that people get busy, we all do but I’m also a firm believer in, “we make time for the people we want,” and trust me when I say this guy made zero effort to get to know me or spend anytime with me. I have decided to give another person a chance. We’ve been speaking to each other for about a year now but I never caught on when it came to him liking me. We would always talk about our sons and I’d give him advice since my son is 6 months older. Occasionally he would ask to hang out but I didn’t think much because I believed he was still involved with his son’s mother. We’ll I decided to take a chance and I like him. It’s easy to open up with each other and I haven’t been able to do that in a long time. We want a lot of the same things in life and who knows we may get them with each other but only time will tell.

Well I just wanted to update you guys but I should be getting back to work now. I’ll do my best to keep this page updated. I’ve been missing writing a lot.
