Or do you get days where you just want to give up???
Some times I think I just cant cope any more!
Going out becomes a chore instead of an enjoyment cos you have a whinging one year old who just sits and makes that annoying noise, theirs nothing the matter with them, whilst you are trying to get ready!
You pack their bag up only for you to turn your back for a second and they have emptied it all out again!!
You are mum 24 hours a day cos you have no one to say to, here you take baby for a min whilst I go and have a wee/bath!
You have to go to the loo with the door open and go as fast as you can cos you know the baby is constructing mass destruction in your front room!!!

Argh Im on a right downer today, wish I had a lovely OH who would come in at 5.00, show me some love and then take Frey off my hands for a few hours!!!!

Tracie what you have to remember is that you are a great person who is doing a really hard job on their own. You have your college course and are going onwards and upwards, keep smiling x

Alfie hasn't even been born yet and i'm finding it a little tough, so i know on those bad days you're going to feel so down but just think of that amazing bond you and Freya have! She'll always know how much you've done for her and you get double her love Very Happy

Aww Tracie, just think... however tired you get or however stressed you get Freya will one day ( when she is old enough ) know that her mommy did apsolutly everything for her and be extremely greatful Smile

....Like Lisa, my little one isnt even born yet, and her Dad has done nothing since the day we found out, now we have split up he does even less! Us women are strong and we will always cope no matter what.... cant you see if your mom/other relative could have Freya for a few hours for one day / night whilst u went out? xxx

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Today Iīm having one of those days when I canīt cope. She just wonīt sleep. Right now she is crying in the bedroom. Iīve had to walk away. Iīll go back in a min but just needed a break from her.

Iīm not sure if itīs more difficult being single or not. Whenever I meet up with my married friends all they do is complain about their husbands and on how they never help out. They have more washing, ironing, cooking to do. At least us singles donīt have to worry about that!

As for going out, all my friends were meeting tonight. I was going to get a baby sitter but decided it just wasnīt worth the bother. Good job as she still hasnīt settled and by the time I got there it would be one drink and then back for next feed.

Like you, tomorrow will be a better day. Just needed to get it off my cheast. Better go now before she gives herself a hernia!
