Self-care may seem like the impossible dream for many single mothers, but one of our Facebook single mum support group members came up with a hilarious (and many mums say ingenious!) solution to finding some single mum me-time. Read on…
Single mum step-by-step guide to a kid-free weekend!
Step 1 – Don’t pay the Telstra bill
Step 2 – Feign sympathy that because of no internet no one can play Fortnite/Watch Netflix or YouTube
Step 3 – Act shocked that Spawn 4 & 5 (10 & 13 yrs) want to go to their Dads for the weekend. (They say there’s nothing to do at Dads and internet is slow but at least there IS internet.)
Step 4 – Pay Telstra bill on the way home from work on Saturday afternoon.
Step 5 – Watch reruns of Lucifer on Netflix.
Step 6 – Do not feel guilty about anything you’ve done and eat as much damn ice cream as you can handle!!
Step 7 – If you start feeling guilty, remind yourself that you work damn hard doing this parenting gig on your own and then drive your ass to the servo for a big box of Maltesers.
