With Triad Moms on Main, one of my favorite parts of this job is giving women a perspective that they may not have thought about ly. Each blog can bring about awareness, expand our minds and open our hearts. The group of mothers I am highlighting today are single, divorced mothers.
I wanted these women to share some of their struggles and some of their joys so that those of us who have not been in their shoes may find some empathy, some sympathy, and also some things to help these women celebrate.
I interviewed a of local mothers and combined their answers below. If you can relate, we would love for you to share some of your ups and downs in the comment section below.
Get divorced — then you should try it with your crazy, unrealistic ex husband and crazy unrealistic ex mother-in-law. You are still arguing about finances. You have spent most of your income on lawyer fees and custody battles. It can feel lonely in the happiest of times.

As you look at the clock you realize once again, your children are the last ones waiting for you at day care.
My Friday and Saturday felt just like Monday and Tuesday. I missed my friends and going out with other couples. I never minded going by myself and sort of loved not having a plus one. Most days we only have each other and we are extremely open and honest with one another. We are the best of friends while they still have respect and know who is in charge. When you truly rely on your support system, you realize the loving power of this foundation. While married, my life was mundane and boring. My ex and I were arguing all the time. I had more tears and more fits of anger than I had ever thought possible.
I never had hope for happiness Now I smile, laugh and enjoy life. It really is amazing. I am proud of who I found out I really was and I now look at parenting and marriage much differently. Thank Goodness! I have a beautifully blended family that includes a fascinating chaotic ex-wive and lovable complex step children! Once we were divorced I continued the counseling and have found so many ways to make Single mom life after divorce a better person, mom and friend.
If we want to go out to eat we go out to eat. Let it go. My married mom friends have all the same struggles, worries and joy and we are all lucky no matter the challenges we face. Chances are they do not want or need your suggestions on how to be a parent on their time. It is so hard because that may mean that bedtimes, eating habits, television shows, discipline are all being done or viewed differently.
It would be wonderful if everyone could be on the same parentingbut chances are you would have probably stayed married if that were the case. Focusing on how things should be different will truly make you crazy and it will be all you talk about. Not good! It is a big fat lesson on learning to Live and Let Live! Thank you to all the amazing moms who contributed to this blog post!
