Single mum and dad dating
While our coupled friends are planning to run a marathon together, I’m still trying to find a babysitter for our date next week. But I have a guard up to protect not one, but two people.
We don’t even have the freedom to make love, cuddle, and sleep next to each other whenever we so desire. If I get hurt, I don’t function well, and that affects my parenting, which in turn affects my child, and all I want to do is protect my child. I’ve acquired a lot of strength and resilience in life, but it doesn’t mean that my vulnerability to love has waned.
When I’m upset with you, my kid can feel it in my energy. I have to constantly remind myself that you do not share my responsibilities nor my past experiences.
I understand this is a difficult concept to remember, but it’s the truth. When I’m so consumed in my own responsibilities, I get frustrated when you don’t understand my anguish.
It was then when a thought began to creep into my head.
I was sleeping next to my mom and I started to notice, how sexy she was.
At the same time, I’m taking on the responsibility, that naturally, two people should share. Time with you = Time away from my kid which means you better make sure it is worth it.
" I asked "Like where are you gonna sleep I totally forgot we could only afford one bed," she explained "I'll sleep in the chair mom its fine," I replied.
"There's only one blanket so you'll have to get close, you don't mind cuddling with mom just like old times right," she said with a giggle.
"No mom I'd love to,"I crawled up along side my mom and got under the blanket.
It was early winter in New York and I came home from night school to find my mom crying over a pile of bills and an empty bottle of jack.
We were being evicted, after my dad cheated on my mom a couple years ago he ran up a lot of credit card bills in my moms name.
