About TheHotFriend
Joined June 2014
Hello!
I am a 25 year old single mother to a three year old son. I'm not technically single, my son's father and I are together and happy but we currently live five hours away. We are trying to work, and save so that we could finally move together! He is doing his part, but I'm currently having a bit of trouble. To be exact he's from Memphis, TN and I'm from Long Beach, CA so we WERE about 26 hours away if you drive. About 1700+ miles. We decided that we can't continue our relationship from so far apart so I moved with my aunt in Louisiana for the time being. She works also, so that leaves me sitting home with my son for extended hours of the day. I can't even begin to look for a job because child care costs too much, so I am literally running out of money and out of options. I've been looking and reading up on this topic for awhile now, and if this is the final answer I've been looking for I will be BEYOND GRATEFUL.

Wow, you have no idea how much I appreciate your statement. You are the owner of that awesome looking restaurant so congrats to you for achieving that. If I ever go to Australia I know where to eat. The internet is so amazing, bringing everyone together.

But I am honored to be an inspiration to you. I am no expert, just trying to make the system work for me. But if there's ever anything I can help u with I will be more than happy to do so. Drop me a line anytime. Thank you so much for your kind words.

Aww thank you so much. A lot of people doubt what we have but I believe in it as much as I believe I could make a decent income with my website lol. I'm pretty much a dreamer, and I tend to stray away from the one's that doubt me because I believe success is the best way to show somebody up. Success to me today was signing into Google AdSense to see that I've made a dollar and some change overnight. My first buck from my domain, it's a great feeling. I appreciate your kind words :-) made me smile.

And I appreciate the comment! Yes, I've grown a love for fitness after I had my son. I'm glad you noticed.

Best wishes to you, and thank you once again.

Hi Erica thank you for the follow appreciated yes you site does look good however do not forget to still go through the lessons there is still much to learn and continue to update your site the biggest mistake you can do now is leave it as is. You need to keep adding posts etc to bring in those extra visitors who will appreciate what you have to offer and help bring in that income you are looking. Wishing you great success not only for the website but also in getting back together in the one place. Take care be well and never give up in all you do. Have faith in yourself.

You will do awesome here! You have already accomplished so much here in such a short time! I totally relate to you with the daycare expenses....it does cost ALOT!
Reply
TheHotFriend Premium
Yes it does. And then daycares and babysitters scare me. My son is my everything! The thought of someone messing with him or treating him inappropriately makes me iffy about it all. I pray I can make this work for my family. Thanks for the kind words. People like you make me smile. So sincere and geniune. I appreciate it.

I had my grandson in daycare since he was 4, luckily it was a great daycare and he loved it. I'm laid off now so he is home with me and he is 8 now. It's been a big change for us! Plus he is growing up and I am still all over protective! We butt heads a lot, but like you said, he is my everything....and I'm going to make sure he is as safe as possible. I was actually afraid for a while this school year of letting him take the bus because of things I had seen on the news! It's just so scary out there now. I truly believe if a parent can stay home with a child then they should....children need that kind of stability. You're an awesome mom!

Aww thank you so much. I know your worries. Back in Cali I was a school bus driver for disable children and some of the teachers were cruel and that's a nice way of putting it. I witnessed some horrors, and I reported them just about everyday but it didn't do much. I had to give up that job to relocate and now I'm wondering my next move. I don't really like that profession because of the way some of the children are treated, and my job basically told me it wasn't my business. But I'm attempting this, and hopefully I'm my own boss one day. You are an amazing person and a great parent/grandparent to your son. He will grow up to appreciate you and your sacrifices. Great parents don't get as much recognition for being great parents, but it's that self satisfaction that makes our day. You're one of a kind!

Hello, and thank you. I've been reading about this topic online for awhile now. I just moved to a different state, and I have a three year old son so it's hard to go to work and look for trustworthy sitters and daycares, and plus they cost a bunch. I am desperate to start my own site and business. Thank you for this, hopefully I learn something.
