Single Mom Rant

Unless you are a single mom by death or divorce you are not a single mom and don’t know what it’s like. Unless you are a military wife and your husband is on a long deployment you don’t know what it is like to be a single parent.

When your husband is on a business trip please don’t post on Facebook that you are a “single mom this week!”. You’re not. You are a mom with a husband out of town. You think it’s cute to tag yourself as a mom with no support who now must handle all the aspects of parenting 24 hours a day on your own. How on earth will you ever get a break?!

It’s not cute. You don’t know what it’s like to live that lifestyle on a permanent basis and it’s disrespectful to those of us who do.
