I hope it is alright to post in the section Technically, I am not a single parent. My husband does come home on average 8-10 days a month...for the next year or so. Family is a distance away as well. So, here is a question for all you single mommy's out there. How does you keep the energy positive 24/7? I have 2 beautiful kids. Absolute loves of my life, both of them. It does get exhausting and I even feel my memory slipping away. They are still on the young side too. Finances are a bit to tight for babysitters. So, here goes: How do you do it? What are some tricks to keep me being the mom I want to be: active, fun, homework helper, emotional supporter...run the house...do some work.
I found a healthy diet an exercise REALLY helps. There is always one or two hours in the day where I wish there was a higher power to turn too...you know, dinners burning, kids decide this is the perfect time to flood the bathroom, roof starts leaking...ect...we all have those moments. How do you have enough reserve energy in you by the end of the day to not get short with the kidlets? How do you find time to read a book? Or is that time just not going to happen until they both are in school?
Any tips, suggestion will be greatly appreciated. My husband and I are going to "re-access" the situation in June but until then....I'm one worn out mama!
