I thought i had it hard when i worked in retail, 6 days a week. One day off to do everything thats needed to be done but too tired to do it. Haha boy was i wrong!! The best hustlers are single mothers. Being a mother is hard work. Being a stay at home single mother is even harder. ♡
As a single mum I'm a hundred things at once. I'm a cook to a fussy eater, a cleaner to the never ending mess of toys, books, food, more toys, a nurse for the pain, a 24 hour milk tap, I'm a teacher to the growing mind and storyteller at night time. I have 30 second showers sometimes and dont often pee alone, I don't get holidays, sick pay or set hours. But I do get paid in hugs and kisses. I choose not to work full time right now so I can stay home and watch him grow, because they grow up too quick!
My day starts the moment my boy wakes up, and ends when he goes to bed at night. It's not easy to be honest. Being a single mother is twice the work, twice the stress, twice the tears. But it is also twice the hugs, twice the love and twice the pride .
Even though I never planned to be a single mother, I did plan on being his mum. Someone once tried to bring me down by saying that because I stay home, don't work and "don't do anything", I wasn't as good as them because they worked to provide for their family. I do more than provide for my son, I am there for him 24/7. And hats off to working single mums too, you are my heroes, I just don't have that option at the moment unfortunately.
So next time you see a mum struggling , let her know she's doing an amazing job even if she is looking tired, wearing yesterday dirty clothes. Better yet buy her a cup of coffee! ♡ Do you know an amazing mother, tag her below and let her know she's doing a great job! ♡ ♡
