    Lol at this thread!

    So that's why I never get invited to couples things... I've been looking for single mum groups in my region today as I am sick of having no social outlet on weekends (when all the couples are busy!)

    I was reading comments about a news article online today (shouldn't do that, they always annoy me) and there were so many assumptions that SMs leave their kids unsupervised in the car while spending their dole on the pokies... so new rule, you must learn to play the pokies and do so at every opportunity. If your kids aren't abandoned in the car scavenging leftover Mcdonalds then you're not doing it right. Its probably already how you spend your vast fortune of child support already because lets face it, you probably get so much its just hard to spend it fast enough.

    What a cracker of a thread... I am currently TTC ON MY Own!!!

    That must mean I am a feminist/man hater, a closet lesbian or just stupid when it comes to appreciating what is required to raise a child.

    I have already checked out what I can get from centrelink, not because I am organized and compiling a 12 month budget, but because I am actually planning on bludging of all the REAL parents tax.

    Blah blah blah.... Geez I thought there were lots of rules for single mums, but single mums by choice... Far out!!

    Oh the other couple I have come across while ttc:

    I am not to ask for any sort of support or babysitting, I chose this, I must therefore deal with it... ON MY OWN!!

    I am not to expect close friends and family to buy gifts for my unborn baby... As it was my choice and I am required to fully supply all clothes/toys /furniture etc.

    I must admit myself to the nearest psychiatric facility at once, there is absolutely no way I have made this decision on educated research, self evaluation and planning.

    Imagine what is going to come up with when I am actually pregnant... Or worse still, brought the said baby into a fatherless world!!!

    You missed an option Chan, you could be TTC in order to trap some poor unsuspecting man and claim child support from him even if the baby isn't his - and if you're not you should be This is presumably part of your 7 year plan to have 7 children all paid for by the state, who will put you in a mansion and shower you with money and cars. You had better practice living it up as we wouldn't want you to let the side down now

    Good luck with TTC,hope you will be a full fledged single mum soon.

    I had a nice experience on the weekend... I met a single mum (since just after birth) with an older girl who was polite, eloquent and also very sweet towards my DD. We get told so often about the mess our children will end up in that I do get moments of doubt in my abilities... meeting such a delightful older kid reminded me that single parents can and do raise kids who are equipped to do well in life. Kudos to that mum and all the others because it may not be easy but it is worth it.

    Apparently Barack Obama was raised by a single mum. I guess she did an okay job.

    I thought this could use a timely bump. I've been strongly reminded of rules 19 and 35 tonight.
