    Hi everyone,

    I will try to keep this as short and sweet as I can. A bit of background, I’m 25 and recently became a single parent to two girls aged 3 and 6. I was with my ex for 10 years and married for 7. So its been 4 months since we separated and I feel ok. A lot has happened in those 4 months and its made me stronger and helped me become a better mom.<br>

    So my question is, how do you all cope on a night time when the kids are asleep? Especially on a weekend when you know that their dad is out having fun and your stuck at home like nothing has changed. (I love my children and I wouldn’t change them for the world and I love being a mom) but there is always that thought in the back of your mind. I mean I have help from my parents and close friends when I do go out but its not very often as all my friends are happily married and to be honest it makes me kind of jealous (selfish I know) but I would never wish their happiness away!<br>I have been feeling quite low this week and a half as it’s sunk in that I am on my own with two children and I’m doing it all by myself. And it is hard and I’ve seen this site a few times but never had the courage to sign up until now. I look forward to speaking to other single parents out there. After all we have to stick together 🙂
