    Hello everyone. I am 26 years old, single and just found out I'm pregnant a week ago.i recently moved to LA to pursue a career in entertainment (specifically music). I sing and write. The father of my child is 20 (*hangs head in shame*) and has another baby on the way by someone in Houston, TX (where we are both from). I am currently very unstable financially, as I am
    Making next to minimum wage at my job. Thank God I at least have insurance! I also have a bachelors degree and professional experience so I am currently seeking a better position with a more stable income. I am very nervous and overwhelmed. I never imagined that I would be a single mother and the thought is truly frightening. I came here to actually get connected with other moms and moms to be and hopefully get some great insight and advice. I refuse to be anything less than the absolute best mom I can be, but right now I am having a really hard time. Thanks in advance for any advice and support.

    Peace and blessings,
    Shannon

    Hello.  I'm 39 and a mother of 2 boys (6 months and 2 years).  I was having trouble sleeping tonight, surfing the web, and found this site so thought I'd check it out.  I have a Master's degree in Library Science and my MBA and work at a University Library.  I love my husband and kids, and my job.  But have found that with all the business of juggling family and work I have become disconnected with friends and hobbies.

    Hiya, I'm Ashley ash for short (literally 5'2 here)So short and 21 = 12yr atleast everyone who see's me seems to think so..  I have one boy (only boy for the past 10 yrs) who is 15 months and thick and chunky!  I have grown up most off my life eastside carolina's and currently *sigh* In S.C. My dh and I met in middle school and got back in touch in high school (moved alot back and forth sc-nc) Favorite things to do in the time I have babeless is either catch a nap play COD BO2 (Xbox) or unwrap the mystery's of coupon's/ diy health, baby, home(etc) or Pinterest the time away in what seem's like 5 mins lol. And sometime's not very often I play with trying to be more femme....

    Hello, I'm 29 years old and my son Tyler is just 3 weeks old. He was born on father's day. I work at a pet store but I hope I can be a stay at home mom soon. I have been married to my husband for one year, we dated for 9 years. I have always wanted to be a mom and I love it so far, but I'm struggling with a lot of anxiety right now. I'm trying to continue breast feeding despite some problems. I just want some support from other mom's and I'm hoping to kick this depression and prove to myself that even if I can't continue breast feeding I'm not a bad mom.

    hi, im a 37 y/o mom of 2. One 14 year old "scene" daughter, and a 4 y/o son. well just about. 

    i am married to a man that i love for the last 10 years but his drinking has increased and gotten worse. at least now, he stays outside in his garage/man cave until after the kids are asleep.

    i am going to be all over this place with questions. i have been reading cafe mom since i liked you guys on fb over a year ago, maybe more. but today i said, i have 2 "allowed" friends who are my neighbors....one is 50 y/o no kids, and the other a 21 y/o(i know she is closer to my daughters age, but without her, i would not have known this whole punk emo kid i have now. but they dont have kids. the younger is polite and tolerates him cos she has a younger sister. but the older couple, you can see the frustration when i ask to go with my son. i need help.

    having a teen girl and preschool boy is karma biting me in the butt big time!

    i suffer from bipolar and anxiety disorder. this makes it extremely hard to keep it together for me, let alone for all the others. only one working and its a part time. pay is crappy, but i have lost 32 pounds in 3 months.(due to the manual labor of putting clothes on racks and walking back and forth the size of a market all day)(a thrift shop)

    as you can see i can, and will go on and on. 

    im interested in music, tho i cant sing or play instruments, i do write reviews of shows, and interviews when i can, also blog about free products reviews and whatever else is going on...

    i know im not a bad mom, but im not a great or i think even good.

    but i am here, and not running for the hills, for those same ones driving me batty are my life and i dont have the luxury to allow depression or mania get in my way of that.

    oh grew up in new jersey til i was 11, moved to kendall in south miami where i lived 14 years, then moved to the triad in north carolina. (my daughter was 2, just got divorced) i wanted a new start, and that my daughter wouldn't end up in a high school like mine.

    well, all that for nothing, cos parkland high may as well call itself miami sunset.

    time to myself---are you serious? nah, um, i enjoy reading. a whole lot. im on my 4th summer book already.
