So, I'm gonna be a single mom soon. It's not a surprise and I've been reading this board for months. And although I feel somewhat prepared, I'm still scared and have no idea what I'm going to do.<br><br>
I'm going to stay with my parents until I work it out. I have two girls under two, though, and putting them in daycare really tears me apart (a big reason I haven't left earlier...). I'm also a work at home mom, and while I bring in a decent amount each month, it's not yet enough to live off. It's a scary place...<br><br>
I guess I just wanted to introduce myself. I guess the good part is we never did get married, so we don't have to bother with that. "My" car, though, is under his name, so I wonder if he's going to be petty and try to take it away from me. Ugh, and I hope he doesn't try for custody of the kids...<br><br>
I don't know how you all do it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

Hang in there.<br><br>
You'll figure out whatever you have to and do what it takes to make it work for yourself and your little ones.<br><br>
We have said repeatedly here that it's harder to 'plan' than it actually is to just do it day by day everyday. Just take it one step at a time and it will eventually come together.

it will be okay mama...believe it, sow the seeds of your future with your faith that all will fall into place. Write and see in your mind what you want for you and your daughters, put it out there...thoughts are things. It is easy to write all that but I"ve been there,,,I am there, its been 8 months since I left and dd and I are still as attached, actually more so. Oh yes, it is hard but it is worth it and you will do it, whatever it is you need to because a mamas love is so strong!! blessings~

Hi, welcome, and blessings to you through all these trials! It's difficult, but it's so wonderful in the end, especially when you get to the point where you're successfully juggling it all, and your kids are doing great...<br><br>
With two little girls, soon they'll be great playmates and that'll be wonderful...mine are almost three years apart and now that the youngest is almost two, they play all the time, it's so beautiful to see!

Keja, we are travelling parallel paths, as I will be a single mama soon, too. I am so scared. Reading the posts here has helped and inspired me and will continue to do so.<br><br>
Blessings and good wishes to you on this unfamiliar path <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">.

Welcome mama. Take things one day at a time. You can do it. Leaving is the hardest part. You are a strong mama and you are doing what is best for your DC. Sending lots of positive and peaceful vibes your way.

Thanks guys... leaving is the hardest step, which I haven't done yet, and now I'm questioning whether I should or not... so I guess it's not as definite as I thought!
