I was wondering if there was any other single moms in here? (:

Well I think at least alot of us have been in that boat at some point.
I was married and divorced with one child before i met dh. I can only say I have so much respect for young mothers like yourself raising young children with AP on your own.
Is your LO's Dady still involved?

No, He has seen her 3 times since she was about 3 months old
1 time in court then the next 2 saturdays after that
He hasn't asked how she is, no happy birthday to her or anything.

I know that can be hard. With DD it was for the best that he didnt want contact and he wasnt a nice person. I'd have done far better by her had i become a single parent much sooner.
But for many children I think sometimes its better when their dad bails altogether rather then a half hearted occasional visit. I hope you will be fortunate enough to find the right person someday who will welcome your daughter as part of his family. Still i'm sure she will do fine as long as she has you to love and care for her. Dont feel left out with the Daddy talk, your just having to be Mommy and Daddy for now. Its probably harder for you then for her, she doesnt expect anything else. Your father may be difficult too, but at least he is there, so there is some male role model, and he must care, or he wouldnt be there. My Grandpa was always worth 10 million of my father anyway
