Oh yeah, I'm going on almost 7 years of single parenthood and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

But yes, it's crazy when they're babies and they're literally attached to you 24/7, you're nursing every single second. Then you finally think you're going to get a break when they start eating solids, but turns out it's even more work preparing them food and feeding them. Babies are heavy, strollers are a nightmare but everywhere you go you have to take them with you, they cry when you least need them to, bathing them is a ton of work, putting them to sleep is a ton of work, I can go on and on.

However, it all settles down and you get into a routine and they start growing up and talking and they can tell you what's wrong and what they need. They start going to preschool and kindergarten and their little world expands and you get to experience it all with them.

I have enjoyed being a single mom. Now that may just be my personal experience, but there it is.
