kevin rudd's free money

Posted by jacqui at 3:05 PM
why is it that single mothers always get the flak? i mean we do not all buy plasma tv's , playstations etc with out money ! i mean come on not all young mothers only think about themselves ! i get really annoyed when they feature "stupid, immature" young mothers on tv.. they really give single mothers a bad reputation ! why don't they for once interview a single mother who is working, studying and trying to bring up a little one? i mean why dont they pick someone that would INSPIRE other single mothers to do the same?? instead of getting some highschool drop out who doesn't want to aspire to be anything else but a pensioner ! i mean come on ! ive been looking around at forums and most people think we only spend pension money on ourselves ! i can honestly tell you life being a single mum is NOT easy. alot of people think that all single mums get the same amount every fortnight. you want to know mine? its not alot and its certainly not enough. if it wasn't for my sons dad i wouldn't be able to get by. even petrol alone burns a hole in my pocket. all my money go to my sons needs. i was quite baffled when alot of my childless friends dont know the cost of a box of nappies. its not cheap. i have to scout around catalogues to be able to find a special on nappies. i do not want to pay 40-50 on nappies so i look around for specials.. all these applies on all my sons needs. i dont go shopping unless theres a sale
and when i do go shopping it is because my ex gave me extra money ! i hope they stop putting single "mothers" on tv.. it really puts us to shame :(
