Hi everyone! I recently found mumsnet and became absolutly enthousiastic about it. Finding so many mums talking about those little things of our daily lives only we can understand just brings my life a great confort.

I have 3 kids and do not live in the UK. I understand most of you are english and what really touches me is seeing that you all live and feel the same way I do...

I´ve been alone for 6 years now and do not intend to re-marry or have another relationship because of the very difficult things i`ve been through. My kids are my life and I work very hard to support us and educate them the best I can.

Is there anyone like me around?

Not the same siutation as you but htere are plenty who are and plenty who will understand.

Nice to meet you - see you around.

Hi welcome to mumsnet, we have spoken before!
i too have three children but i am not a single parent thou with DHs ill health i do all of the parenting at the moment.

A singel parent of one is hard enough-let alone three.Ages admittedly change things but welcome-you will get some great advice/sanity checks here!

Got two, also live abroad and ex- about to go back to the UK. MN helps me keep sane. Usually lurk, change my name often - ex knows I'm on here.

Don't imagine I'll be dating for some time, the very idea is weird. As for kids, they are the best thing in life, even after a bad night.

Hi onlyjoking, we spoke yesterday! Just arrived and already finding known people... Augustus, things change but don´t necessarily become easier from what I´ve been seing till now...Sometimes I fell really depressed

I'm not surprised! Any age and combination brings it's difficulties-how old are they?

I have 4 children and am also a lone parent. we live in Germany at the moment.
We also had a bad time, and I am very wrapped up with the children now.
Looking forward to talking to you!

I was on here to search for my old thread to add a post.
Picked them up on Saturday, after he left them in filthy, ragged clothes at the police station. Ex h is seriously disturbed, but so violent that it is hard to know what to do to help him.
(sorry for hijack btw!)

What´s the matter with your ex-h nightynight? police station?? violent? has he any mental disorder or so? How old are your kids?

I think he has a mental disorder, chikenmo, but dont really know a lot about it. Children are quite young, 10 and under.
