You are NOT a single mom!
I am sick and tired of women with husband who have full time work calling themselves “single moms” because your husband is gone for 1-3 weeks at a time on the oil sands.
A SINGLE parent means there is only one of you. EVER. you don’t have someone one week a month to take the kids for a bit. You don’t have a second income to pay for your lifestyle. You don’t have a partner to talk to a night before bed.
You are 100% responsible for all the income in the house
ALL the cleaning
ALL the cooking
ALL the errands
ALL the PTA meetings
ALL the sick nights.
You have a partner that helps you roughly one week a months you have financial security.
YOU ARE NOT A SINGLE MOM
You are a married woman who’s partner is busting his balls to keep a roof over his families head. Welcome to adulting. Deal with it. Stop whining because your spouse actually has work and be frigging grateful you have a spouse at all. Some of our spouses are dead, or deadbeat dad’s.
