Well, I have been abandoned so DH can be sworn in as a US citizen (actually he will have dual status). So I am "single mom" until Sunday morning. I don't like being a "single mom". When DH and I were taking the various "how-to-be-a-parent" classes when I was preggo with DD#1, there was a lady there who when introducing herself made it quite clear she was a single mom BY CHOICE. (Those were her words. "Hi, my name is ?????. I'm a single Mom by choice.) Needless to say, DH and I kind of shied away from her (her hormones must have been on over drive...she was a little pushy...) but we always wonder how much of a choice it really was. Was it an 'oops' from a one night lover? Was she wanting to be a mom so badly that she was inseminated (traditionally or artificially)? Made with a BF who is now out of the picture?
I would NOT choose to be a parent alone but I admire those who are clearly stronger than me and do have to do it all by themselves.
The day care just called and said the baby has a fever....wonder if this means I have to call into my work tomorrow b/c of a 24 hour wait policy....see what I mean...I can't do this alone!
