Here we are! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
I'm a single mom (officially divorced next week) to two girls, ages 4 yrs and another age 10 months. We are over near Glendale/Pasadena.<br><br>
I have found a few scattered AP-single moms here and there... it's nice to finally meet someone who has the same-type parenting and in a similar situation, I know I'm not alone!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Whereabouts are you isleta?

We are in South Orange County-little far south of ya<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> It is hard sometimes-I was a single mama while pregnant, so I don't have much knowledge on divorce. But, I do know the stress of raising kids alone! DS is my pride and joy! Glad to meet you!

Hey Jish<br><br>
The kew word here is single mother. In finding your tribe it's all married mommies. Not that married mommies are bad but they don't get the culture really.<br><br>
This thread has come up in here a few times, a few people respond, then we never get together. On thign about single moms is we don't have a lot of time on our hands... free time that is...<br><br>

As a newly single mom I can attest to that. In jumping from married to single practically overnight, I wanted to be able to talk out issues I was going through or have gone through with people who have been there, as well as support those who are having a tough time in a situation I may be able to help them in.<br><br>
I have been lucky enough to have met 3 single moms in the area recently. We are trying to start up a single-moms support group/playgroup type deal. A go-to-the-park-and-chat thing. I hope it works out, if anyone's interested please let me know! It'd probably be in the areas surrounding Pasadena more or less.<br><br>
And like Oatmeal said, it's tough with no free time! We're trying to work around school/work/etc schedules right now. I'm glad this thread got started, Isleta. I hope we can at least do some talkin' on here if not in person, hehe <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I've yet to post up my little "single intro" due to time constraints, I'll work on that soon as well...<br><br>
Nice meetin' you all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Well, I'm in Northern California... not near any of you so far. I lived in San Francisco for 8 years, and last year after having Max I moved back to my hometown near Sacramento to be near my family.
