Dating as a single mom

So dating is difficult for anyone but throw in a 4 year old (excuse me a 4 1/2 year old) and it becomes almost impossible. Where do you people find the time! So my typical day goes as such...

5:30 Wake up
5:45 Actually wake up and get out of bed
5:46 start coffee and get in shower
5:50 1st attempt at waking up Jordan
6:00 Drink coffee and do hair and makeup
6:30 Get dressed for work and 2nd attempt to wake up Jordan
6:45 another cup of coffee and third attempt to wake up Jordan (can you see why I start early)
7:00 pick out Jordan's outfit and get her out of the bed
7:03 pick a new outfit because jordan wants to wear a dress for the 5th day in a row
then pack my lunch, brush teeth, make jordan re-brush teeth, quick bowl of cereal for jo jo, food for sparx, find shoes and keys and finally out the door.

tiered yet?

Ok now to the daycare by 7:30 so that you can talk to the teachers and a LONGGGG goodbye. then sign her in and back in the car to be to work by 8:00

Now work 8 hours sometimes 10 if lazy co worker had a late night the night before.

Pick up Jo Jo ( the best part of my day) make dinner hear about her day, do something fun with her. then time for her bath, brushing her teeth, re- brushing her teeth, bed time book and a quick snuggle.

tiered yet?

Not done because if I didn't fall asleep tucking Jordan in, I still have the dinner dishes to wash and house to clean up.

My life is busy and this is a day when I don't work my 2 hour night shift. So to try and squeeze in time for a boyfriend is just not happening right now.

Hopefully one day I will find a guy that is patient enough.


Know your priorities

As much as I would love to have a relationship right now I just don't see it happening. I think that what I need to do now is focus on my future and get myself to where Jordan and I need to be before I can add anything else to this already hectic but beautiful life.
