Any single moms out there?

I just read through the posting on singles on this website, and it looks like all but a few posters are single guys without kids. I can see I'm in the minority right off the bat being female. So I'm quite curious now--any other single moms out there?

Re: Any single moms out there?

If I read this post correctly, SolidA is a single mom with two kids.

I know there are one or two more at least, but I can't locate them at the moment.

Actually, I would say probably a majority are/were married and many of us have kids.

Nevertheless, welcome.

Re: Any single moms out there?

So how did you all manage to do it? I've got a plan and a dream and I'm dedicated to the goal of early retirement. Of course, it all depends on a bit of luck and good health as well. Any secrets you can pass along? I'm on a 7-year plan.

Well, I'm a divorced dad of 3 young kids.

As to your plan, you may want to post it here for critique. It would probably be quite valuable to you if you are open to feedback. Lots of very smart folks here.
