Need a Break

I wish i had family and friends here in Florida. I need a break with all this divorce stuff and being a single mom with no job. It's ruff I wish i can get away for a few hours. I just need to get things off my mind and relax but that can't happened right now. My body is just tried and drained. I wish us stay at home moms can get a paycheck for all the work we do.

    Why don't you put your children to bed early and get a couple hours of alone time tonight? Feed them, do your normal routine for after dinner/bedtime, just do it all earlier. I doubt your children will even notice.

    That's what im doing now and not working so well right now with all 3 of them crying because they don't want to get dress and go to bed, and they already at dinner. i guess it's a bad night for all 3 of them.

    Awww....have you tried laying down with them to see if they settle better? Reading a book? Put on soothing music? What usually works best when they are like this? I can only recommend what we've done but it works with our children, I don't know if it will work with yours.

        Amen to that!! As a single mom, there are nights where I've tricked my kids into bed an hour early. I've actually changed the clocks. Lol
        I make sure that day though I've kept them busy and run them ragged at the park so they conk out.

        I've let them fall asleep in my bed before just to make it happen faster.

        That time alone is super important. Sometimes u want to just disconnect.

        Are u part of a moms group or play group? Where there's a will there's a way. I don't have any family near either.

        Hang in there.

          nope no play groups or mom groups. i have a lot of trust issues with females, no offence you all are great and i love this group. i just don't like the drama and bad talking behind my back or others for no reason at all. i've had female friends and hungout alot with them then they just turned on me, i'm a really nice person and will be there for anyone who needs it
