It all started innocently enough with a casual conversation between a close friend and I. She lamented that since her husband rarely made it home before 8PM each night, she was pretty much “like a single mom.” Having been a single mother in the past, and intimately knowing their struggle, my mind wandered to all the single moms out there who managed to make it six months, a year, a decade! How dare she compare her situation to theirs.
I began to ponder the stories of all the millennial mommies out there (like me) who aren’t married, but aren’t necessarily single either. What about these (sometimes) single parents?
Regardless of your definition of what constitutes a single mom, or a (sometimes) single mom, I believe there are struggles and sacrifices across the board for millennial parents.
I will be guest posting regularly on Suburban Misfit Mom in the niche space of Millennial Parenting.
