    Hi

    I'm a single mum to a 5yr old boy.. I love him so much but I've got to say this is the toughest job I've ever done, it's something that a single person will never understand until it happens to them. I feel physically and emotionally drained most of the time and it has brought...

    People ask me all the time.

    "What's being a mom like?" Honestly, it's a lot like being responsible for tiny drunk people who constantly need your attention/ focus every four minutes. Best way I can describe it. Kids are definitely...a handful to say the least. But having them has made my life so much more...

    I started early in life.

    At age 14. But my parents were very supportive of me and I was still allowed to have my teen years. I love my son, even though he enfuriates me sometimes! He is so much like me, but I think he has a streak of his father in him, and that may not be a good thing.
