Being a single parent comes with a whole new level of challenges in my eyes, there's no one to give you a few minutes break, you can't just nip to the shop for milk if you need a minute, or ask your partner to feed the child/ren so you can eat your dinner before its cold for once...
You all know what I mean.
Well yesterday was our first day of attempting toilet training, DS screamed and chucked tantrums every time I suggested going anywhere near the bathroom or toilet, or seeing on the grass. We went through six pairs of clothes and by the end of the day I was so livid that I just couldn't calm down.
I do not really need advice on the toileting front, that is a whole kettle of fish I do not want to go into.
But I am thinking maybe I need some new stress management strategies, so what do you other wonderful single parents do to de-stress when you can't actually take any time out for yourself?
