Anyone else feel most lonely as a single mother around/after the holidays? My son was with me for half of Easter but I wish things were different for us. I feel envious of friends going camping or holidaying with their full regular families. He’s only young but he’ll feel that way too soon.
I actually don’t mind it. I find it exhausting all these people running around crazily over the holidays. I prefer to take the time to relax and enjoy time with my little ones at home or in local parks etc.
I do get what you are saying though as holidays can be a lonely time for us single mums.
I feel it every holidays. I feel envious of all my friends taking their kids away on camping trips etc. most of my friends have caravans and I don’t have any camping gear. I feel sad I can’t give my children these same experiences. But I know they do get to enjoy some fun holidays with their dad.
Holidays are really the only time I truly miss having a partner and somewhere to share holidays with.
