Gotta love us single moms!! My daughter is 9 and she is the most helpful. Im just finishing up my prereqs and she too is very proud of me. At first she was hesitant me going back to school, I'm on my second degree and she is used to me working full time while she's in school. It was tough for her to get into a new routine(which changes each semester), Mommy going from work to school then studying. But we always find ways to make time, that test can wait just 2 more hours. Moms are amazing that way, how we know when to put our children first. We've been running on lack of sleep since we became pregnant...this is no different. I love when she knows I am studying so hard for a test, and when I get her from "after school," the first thing out of her mouth is what I got on my test..and then I get a High Five!! SHE ROCKS!! Best of luck to all of you single moms!!
