Hello, thanks for replying, i'm ok on the whole, just on a bit of a downer at the mo.
I am not sure if I caught how old your son is?
HELLO!! WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MY KID!! )lol.
lol!!!! Yes i feel like that when his teacher tells me all these wonderful things he's doing at school, like feeding himself! Lazy monkey always wants me to do it for him!!!! Bless him!
A single mom in itself is something that not alot of people can do. And then to have a child that has problems,and you are doing it by yourself?
I was a single mother for the first four 1/2 years of his life. Thankfully i met a really lovely guy who i've been with for two 1/2 years now. Him and my son really get along, and Ewan calls him daddy now, which is lovely. He stays with us for a few weeks while he's working down this way, and then he goes back up to do his course for a few weeks, he's re-training to be a plumber. We're both studying. He's really understanding about my depression which is nice. He's such a breath of fresh air compared to the abusive relationship i was in with my son's biological father. He doesn't know where we're living because he used to be physically abusive as well as mentally abusive. He's an alcoholic. I've moved four times to get a peaceful life for me and my son. All i ever wanted when we moved away was for my son to have the best father possible, my father when i was growing up was very cold, detached, and regimental. I still love him even though i'll never be able to get close to him, i accept now thats just the way he is. I'm just so glad my son will have the chance to grow up with a loving cuddly father who wants to take an interest in him. That makes me more happy than anything.
I think you need to change your nick to "Warrior"...that seems to fit better
I still find it really hard to take compliments even now! It's so much easier to take critisism isn't it lol?! Thank you, even though you made me blush!!!!
Now...maybe it is time to find a sitter when you friend gets back,and just have a night all to yourself? I am thinking a nice dinner,a glass of wine..and a back rub? ;)
Hope you're going to spoil yourself too soon, it's good to do something nice just for ourselves once in a while. Besides you need to take care of yourself so you can take care of the family. Maybe treating yourself to a nice box of chocolates and a video, or a trip to the hairdresser, anything to feel good once in a while. I'm lucky that my mum has Ewan one night a week so i can get some sleep, because little man tends to wake up a lot most nights, so that one night is very precious! Speaking of which i just realised how late it is, lost track of time then! Time for bed i think, up early again....
Sorry i don't half waffle on sometimes!!!! Must get out more!!!! I like chatting on here though, you're all so nice....
