Being a Single Mom Was a Bit Too Much for Me

I called around to get house cleaning prices so that I could get some extra help at home. I had just had a baby, and I was unable to keep up with doing everything on my own at home, while also working full time. I needed to be able to come home at night after work and spend some time with my child because that is important for mother and child bonding and child development in general. I did try to handle everything on my own for a few months after giving birth to my child, but it just didn’t work out as well as I hoped that it would.

The father of my daughter is someone that I do not know really well. We only had a few dates together. After that, we both did not feel that we were a good match. He went his way and I went mine. The sad part is that I really didn’t know much about him. Our dates were a bit superficial, and we usually went to a club or over to his house. So, after we said goodbye to one another, I didn’t even know his last name. When I found out that I was pregnant, I was stunned about it. However, I’m pretty strong, and I knew that I could do it on my own.

Taking care of my child alone turned out to be harder than I thought. During the day I work, and I drop her off at a nursery each morning. She’s treated really well there, and employees call me with updates if I need to know anything. Each night when I get home, I’m pretty tired. I sometimes found myself falling asleep soon after I get there. I couldn’t do that because I need to feed my child, spend time with her, etc. I have more time now that someone comes by to help with cleaning.
