How Ms. Single Mama Will Live On. I need you!

by mssinglemama on July 31, 2012

Thanks to all of you who have hopped over to I love that you are there, continuing our journey with us. We just had a really fun thrift giveaway. You wouldn’t believe the bag I found. So cute!


For those of you still here and still very much single mothers I have a few items I’d like to throw your way:

1. Who would like to be Ms. Single Mama approved? Do you have a blog about being a single mother? Email me at and I will review your blog. If you’re approved, you’ll receive one of these nifty little badges. Use the subject line: MSM Approved

Don’t steal it… that would be mean.

2. Would any of you like to guest blog for Ms. Single I don’t want this website to die or disappear at all. In fact, I want it to continue and live on. The archives and posts here walk readers through my journey as a single mother and there’s so much here to learn from. If you are interested in guest blog posting, please email with subject line: Guest Blog Posting By a Human (to prevent from spam). Also, I am going to be really, really picky about who guest blogs for me. Your writing should be engaging and your story should be compelling and most of all, positive. What have you learned? What could you share? How can your experience help other single moms?

3. Check out my latest post on Beauty and the Biker, in which I shove a cake into my brother-in-law’s face, allow my child to try a margarita and narrowly escape a religious debate at the in-laws and go ziplining in Columbus. You can read it here.

4. If you are going to BlogHer, leave a comment. I would like to set up an impromptu gathering of the single mom bloggers who are attending. Leave a comment here and I’ll check in to see if you are going, or @ me on Twitter – @mssinglemama.

Thank you! Look forward to your emails.

I use to read your blog as a single mum and it helped me beyond belief and then as life goes, drifted onto other things..I decided today to check back in, kind of like checking in on an old friend, and was suprised by my own excitement on how much as changed in your life and I am so keen to read the new blog! I want to thank you for helping me find the most amazing perspective and saying all the things I thought about before I was ready to say them myself!
Thank you.

You have to trust yourself to know whether these people have sincerely changed and wanted to change, and whether they can do that with you. Otherwise it’s time to let go.

After 2 years of trying to get pregnant and one miscarriage I finally had got past the 12 week window and here we were, me and my man. We were going to be a family. It was a difficult pregnancy and i hoped at some point the OH would step up and be the father he claimed he was destined to be and support me. Alarm bells began ringing when this support never arrived. I was living thousands of miles from my family and suddenly felt very alone and now the OH seemed like a different person. I knew it was hormones, I knew something was very wrong. In summary when our beautiful baby girl was 3 weeks old, I found out he had been sleeping with anything that moved, paid or unpaid. I immediately kicked him out and my world and my family dream crashed. I have never felt so low in all my life and I crawled into a cave and shut the world out. However it was that little girl who made me come out of that cave. She needed me and boy did I need her. That was 10 months ago. I have now moved across the world back to my family. They and my friends have been amazing and my daughter is such a happy child. It’s been a long and painful journey and many tears shed. But I am so glad I had the strength to leave and not accept that kind of disrespect. My dream of a family was shattered and being on my own at times has been tough. Just those lonely evenings when you are exhausted and you just want a hug or a mug of tea. He has financially cut us off as revenge so money is tight but we manage. But I am proud of myself and I hope that this strength is something I can pass on to my child. As for ‘him’. He is now licking his wounds in the knowledge that he lost the best woman he could of ever wished for and the
chance to see his little girl grow up. I’m now excited about what the future holds for us…………and guess what…..this Friday I’m going on my first date…..wish me luck xxx

But your approach reinforces my own opinion that you need more than technical skills these days, and that customers should EXPECT more than just technical skills, when hiring a web designer. Someone with online marketing expertise should definitely tout the advantage of working with them.

You’re right! Being a single mom is never been easy. I been a single mom for over 2 years. And I always find it very hard. Every time I watch my self in the mirror, it always feels very sad and lonely knowing that your alone while your child is growing up. Your happiness only is your kids but if they’re at school, you will be left alone at home and every details in your life will comes into your mind, over and over again. But, I used to feel that way now. Maybe, I should be more positive in my thoughts so that I could overcome this sad feelings that softly kills me. I just owe everything to our Almighty God.

I am a single mom. My husband passed away in February of 2013, when I was 7 months pregnant with our third child, another boy. Aside from adjusting to my husband not being here, it has been a huge adjustment raising my boys alone. There are many days that I am completely void of adult interaction. If I did not go to work, I honestly think I would not have any adult interaction accept for an occasional encounter at the store or gas station. Raising my boys is absolutely exhausting. I keep thinking when they get to this age or that age, it has to be easier. I can’t imagine at this point even considering to start dating again. Where in the world would I find the time?
