Hi...am a divorcee with a 9 year old girl, living in the east. Looking for people to chat with.
I have a soon to be 3 year old gal, i'm in the east too, at down town east area
Used to live near your area before divorce. Am new to this forum...no clue how it works!
Noo worries, you will get the hang of it soon enough.
SO you live in serangoon now? I've been in the pasir ris area for the last 8 years. Love the area so we shifted from next to white sands to Jalan Loyang Besar in dec.
You must be a strong girl to be bringing up your girl alone, dont't think i'd be able to do so.
Yeap...was living there for a few years and loved the place. Wouldn't have left if not for divorce.
Getting used to being a single mum but can be lonely....even tho I'm too busy with kid!
Awww...3 year is such a great age! You start seeing their character! Enjoy those times!
You just gone through the divorce recently ?
I'm married but still lonely too really, too busy with work and kid, no time to meet up with friends and no social life. The only me time is when i've put her to bed but then i'll ahve to pack her stuff for school and do some housework here and there.
She is at this stage where she is a monster!! lol! so stubborn and opinionated, i think she got naughty after i started her in full day childcare last dec
Hi there, I am a mother with 3 month-old boy. No social life since I have given birth. Now working during the day and taking care of my baby during the night. Basically rest at home during weekends or sometimes do some shopping with husband and baby. It can be tiring throughout the weekends as well. No time and energy to hang out with friends.
I am in Pasir Ris area too.
Which part of pasir ris are you at?
I used to be at drive 1.
It is indeed very tiring to be a mom, your boy still wakes up for night feeds? My gal was waking up every 3hours till she was 9 months old, now she still wakes up for milk around 4am.i do work too so it's very tiring for me as well.and I refuse to get a helper cos it will prob kill me if my gal is closer to the helper then me.
My weekends mostly revolve around housework as the only free time I have is after my gal sleeps such as now and I'm usually too tired to think of housework so it's all pushed to the weekends. Other then that , we sometimes have friends over for dinner, but we mostly eat out.
Maybe we can arrange to meet sometime at whitesands? If my hubby is working late, my gal and me usually end up either at whitesands or downtown east which is walking distance from her childcare.
I work at drive 12 and used to live in street 72. Now living with my mother in jb until we get our house.
My boy did not wake up for night feeding since he was about 9 Weeks but recently he doesn't fall asleep so easily and wake up for feeding at least twice at night.he is about 15 Weeks now. He sudden increased milk intake and always feels not full! I tried to control the milk amount Coz i am worried that he will get stomach ache after drinking too much! I think this is so called "growth spurt". Hopefully it will go away quickly so i can have better sleep at night! =)

I used to give my gal lesser amount due to her every 2 hours frequency but she will keep crying.
You are very lucky that he stopped at 9 weeks, at least you can get some rest.
So you travel in & out of JB everyday? Quite tiring right? Hehe! But the cost of bringing a baby up is probably much cheaper there.
hi. im in the mid of divoice . with 2 kid. 5 year old and 2 year old. all boys.
wa allof you all stay at east quite far./ im staying at jurong
Hi hi everyone
glad Kaykay and ms Wong seem to have set up some meeting of sorts.
huihui, dont't worry, you can "meet" us here!
My divorce was quite a long time ago. Almost 3 years. We were separated about 2 years before that. I have sole custody of my girl so a lot of time is spent doing things with her and for her...have me time but that's usually for vegetating! No social life and too lazy for that now.
Still nursing another heartbreak...and I must say that it doesn't get any easier
I think my son is forgetful type, haha... He will forget about asking for more milk when I Burr him.hehe...Originally Posted by Kaykay2009:663324
Yup, i travel everyday in and out jb with my husband. Sometimes I'll try to catch some sleep in the car.
For sure, it is much cheaper to bring up baby in jb. My baby delivery fee and confinement lady also much cheaper!
Living alone has got its own benefits, I'm tempted to divorce too sometimes when hubby goes drinking till the wee hours of the morning or when he is on his Xbox, like super glued on like that, dont't even move for hours! Very frustrating when I'm running around entertaining my gal or changing/ feeding her, it's worse cos I do work so I'll really appreciate some help here and there rather then do everything myself.
Gerr, heartbreaks are easy only for the guys , we women are too emotional and we tend to forgive 100%. So how to just let go like that. I think you should give yourself a cut off time though, that's what I did when I broke up up with my ex , we were together for 7 years. I gave myself 2 weeks then to cry and get over it
hi ! i'm staying in east too ! kallang with 3 kids , 10 & 8 yrs old boy and a baby girl 3mths =)
i'm damn free, so can find me chat often ! haha
@kaykay, so true... Given myself this weekend to cry and hopefully will move on.
but dont't get a divorce. True your hubby isn't there mostly...but try to fix the problem why he's like that. I left because mine was physically abusive and even during the divorce, he prolonged the whole thing by going MIA! So a divorce sounds like a quick fix but usually isn't .
Gerr, you feeling better? Sorry, weekends are crazy for me, gotta do housework and entertain my gal.
Just think about the things that happened that had upset you and how he is probably living it up so why should we be the one suffering?
It worked for then
@kaykay, am doing much better today. Busy at work, came home and decided to mop and do laundry for exercise and keep busy!
Ya, can understand how busy weekends are! Sending my kid for enrichment and trying to spend a good weekend with her...tired!
I wish we were like guys ...can turn off and forget things so easily. Even when I was still married, my ex's idea of looking after the kid was turning on tv and sitting there while I do housework! The kid come and look for me then not his biz....Zzzzzz. What nonsense !
Hello Kaykay ~
yup , most guy's logic are always one of the kind .. they only feel , they are the ones busy working and bring home money but forget to see that some mothers are doing the same but after work gonna cook , do hsework and look after the kids ..
well , typical guys .. LOL !
Hi hi xiaodaisy,
Wow! 3 kids! Amazing! You must have a lot of energy.
I only have a 3 year old gala bd i feel so tired mostly. So are you stay at home mum? I do work, I'm in sales and hubby is my boss.so I basically do the same thing as him except that I have loads of housework to do at the same time. I suspect he thinks it all mine to do because he wanted us to get part time help ( I refuse to have a full time helper) but I couldn't find one that was recommended and I didn't want to just use anybody. I'm the type that if I get you to help me and you dont't do it the way I do, then I might as well do it ,myself...so yeah, in his eyes, its probably like I asked for it, lol!
Hi all, is this thread still active? )

best way to pass time is to keep busy and enjoy your hobbies. Have a great day everyone. Cheer~~
@kaykay my hubby also like that but currently now still preggy so okay. I'll just accompany him to play games sometimes after I do finish my household work. If they dont't want to do something so why not us. Even I dont't like th game a lot but just to accompany him I sacrifice my hobbies. And you know what he still will smoke beside me and is very annoying. I used to smoke but after preggy quit alrdy now he smokes just beside me. Really drives me thru th roofs. But I just keep quiet. I dont't want extra argument or what so when he smokes I just find an excuse out. (: I'm living at pasir ris too. Having a baby boy EDD 23 October. Living opposite Loyang point. (: and because of my hubby I totally pushed all my friends away. And getting heavier so lazy to go out too. Other than school friends I dont't socialise much as hubby also still in army I just stay at home and everyday clean and clean and clean the house.
I used to entertain my hubby and play games with him but we always end up arguing cos he is so serious and competitive. Haha! For me I play to relax it he end up stressing me.
Wow! Then we live quite near each other. I shifted to Jalan loyang besar last dec, kind of diagonally across from you.
I think most mummies/ wives are like that . Willingly sacrifice social life esp after a baby along.
my hubby sometimes will comment that I like no friends like that. So irritating! I also find my life so sad but then how?
I see some of my friends , still hanging out drinking etc,the kid throw to the maid but I dont't like that so nO choice .
I'm also a smoker but stopped after I found out about my pregnancy. I think cos you used to smoke that's why hubby didn't realised shouldn't be smoking around you. Just tell him , that it's bad for your baby
