Life as a single mom

So I haven't posted in quite some time, but I have a very good reason. I finally had my baby! He is a week old today and I'm definitely realizing how tough it is to be a single parent. The father is involved, he actually comes to see him every day and while he is here I usually take the opportunity to get in a nap or get things done around the house. If any of you know me personally, you know that I'm not a very patient person at all.. which scared me because I thought I'd get frustrated easily with taking care of a newborn by myself, but surprisingly I have all the patience in the world for my little man. It's the most surreal feeling having him home with me and knowing that he is mine.. and he's perfect. I know I probably just think that because he is my baby, but he really is perfect to me. And even though we aren't together, I'm thankful to have the father involved in our baby's life. It's amazing to see them together.. father and son. He'll play with him, feed him and everything, but change diapers lol, but he has really come around. And even if he doesn't care about me.. I'm glad he cares about his baby as much as he does.

Being a single parent is definitely the hardest job I've ever taken on.. but I wouldn't change it for the world! He has my heart. <3
