    Username: Jenni85
    Real Name: Jenni
    Number of children: 2 (16 months and 5 1/2 months)
    Separated since: June 07 - although been a few flings with the idiot ex since
    Care arrangements: Both with me full time and idiot ex only appears when he wants money or has nothing better to do with his time.
    Biggest challenge as a single parent: My youngest has colic so it's pretty tough having the time with my eldest. Trying to deal with two screaming babies at once is not fun and I hate the whole controlled crying thing, hate having to put one down and just let them cry for a few minutes to deal with the other. Domestic violence issues with the ex also
    General comments: Slowly but surely getting on with life and putting thoughts of the ex behind me to give myself a chance to move on and be happy.
