I hate that phrase... I have been a single mom and it is wicked hard... heck I had it easy as a single mom and it still was a b*tch...as a Military Spouse I hear that phrase ALL the time, it seems like EVERY TIME a command deploys half the mom's start saying they're part time single moms and to me it just kinda makes fun of the women who are really single moms. You may be overwhelmed and have a lazy or over worked spouse but your not a single mom if your called Mrs and have someone else contributing to the household either financially or emotionally then your NOT a single mom
I've read that article but definitely have an amazing hubby. He knows how hard of a challenge it is to breastfeed (er... he knows I have a hard time staying motivated or being glued to one spot until she's done eating) and to try to cook, clean, and do homework all in the same day... He does all the nighttime diaper changes and most of the day ones as well so I am pretty lucky! I mean he does more than just change diapers.... but I really am so lucky!
I definitely don't feel that I am, in fact, at the moment hubby is a SAHD! (Until March) so I have more help than I could ever ask for! I've been a single mom and it's no walk in the park!
That being said, when I was married to my exDH, I definitely felt like a single Mom. He wouldn't work and he just laid in front of the tv all day, the only time he wanted to help was when we were in public to put on a show
