My Friday as a single mom

Yes! It’s finally Friday! This is the day of the week I’ve been looking forward to since…well, all week! Not only is it Friday, but it’s also payday.  I’m going to live it up tonight, have some drinks with friends and go club hopping all night and then I think I’ll do it again on Saturday.  Yes? 

No. That’s not my life anymore.  That was before Mason.

So what are my real plans for tonight and the rest of the weekend, you ask? The truth is I’m not sure.  You’d think with me being so excited about Friday I’d have alot lined up but I don’t.  I’m just excited for a weekend spent the majority of the time at home with my 11 month old best friend.  I’m excited about a little extra sleep (if I’m lucky).  I’m excited about possibly getting some laundry done and finally having some time to wash my hair. Most of all, I’m excited about spending some quality time with my little one. 

As a full-time single mom and grad student, I don’t get to spend very much time with Mason during the week.  My weekends are a blessing and I cherish them.  Weekends give me moments that if I lose, I can never get back again.  I will seize these moments in the company of my son and embellish them with the beauty that is Mason.   

So when they ask, “Can you get a babysitter for tonight?”  The answer is probably yes, I just don’t want to.

Singly mommingly yours, M.

  1. ❤ your on track mama and seems like your doing great! my kids go to their dads on the weekends for two weekends back to back and i work Saturdays, and during the week i work til 6 so i know how you feel about short time with the little one…
    but you have to remember that though the life of trying to be the best mom you can be, you can lose the most important part: yourself.
    You have to be the best you before you can be the best mom. Allow yourself some time to relax and laugh with friends. A few hours at applebees every Saturday with your girls isn't going to make you a bad mom…it will make you a happier mom for your baby too! Keep you both happy!
    Keep it up mama! Enjoyed your post 😀

    • Hello candacerenea88!

      Thank you for your comment and your kind words. You’re absolutely correct and I absolutely agree! I do need to make time for myself. I’ve been told this in the past and I’ve thought about it. I will make it a point to make sometime for myself every once in a while. For now, I’m still quite new at this and I still got that new mom fever so I do want to stay in on weekends. I haven’t got the desire to go out. For the moment, this is what makes a happier me, but I know eventually that will change. And when it does, off to Applebee’s I go for some drinks with girlfriends. Wanna join me when I do? 😉
