This Married Mom Has A Message To Single Moms About The Amazing Job They're Doing

"We see you."

Parenting isn't easy. It's hard for moms and dads, and it can be challenging for co-parents. It can be especially hard on single parents who do not have a partner to assist them. And it's single moms' hard work that can sometimes go unnoticed or not appreciated fully. That's why Jennifer Weedon Palazzo wanted to share a message for them on the Mom Cave TV Facebook page


The married mom posted a video celebrating what an amazing job single moms are doing.

The blogger begins the video by telling single moms outright what a fantastic job they're doing raising their kids. She reveals that she knows they're rocking it because single moms are on their own, they have one or more children, and the kids are still alive.

On a serious note, she elaborates that she can identify with what single moms are going through because her husband frequently travels for work and she has to look after the kids on her own. "Sometimes people ask me where he is and I don't even know because I'm too busy trying to keep these tiny humans live," she explains.

However, Palazzo acknowledges that she is lucky because she knows that while she's at home in the "chaos," she has her partner out there working hard to support the family. Plus, she has someone to help raise the kids and to be there for emotional support.

She realizes that the situation could be doubly, triply or even "infinitly" times harder for single moms, and she wants them to know they don't go unnoticed.

Palazzo states, "All the single moms out there: I see you. We see you. And we might not step in to help because you look like you're doing a pretty damn good job of it."

And she wants single moms to know that if there is anyway she can help, she wants to. "Even though I'm a mess myself, come over, be a mess with me," she tells them.

Palazzo encouraged parents to open up if they need help so everyone can support each other.

The Facebook post also encourages viewers to share the message with single moms in their lives. And the video has started to go viral. Since it was posted on July 24, it has been viewed 2.9 million times.

One mom said, "Thank you so very much, you literally had me in tears. Most people don't see the struggle, the pain, the loneliness, the incredible strength it takes to carry yourself and two other human beings that depend solely on you for mental, emotional, and financial support."

Another thanked Mom Cave TV for the timely message, "I just came across this in the middle of the night while up caring for one of my two type 1 diabetic children. I am a single mom with five kids. Thanks so much. I needed this!!! Life is overwhelming doing it all alone."

A new single mom was also grateful for the video. "This gave me chills. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'm a newly single mom ... I was a stay-at-home mom while I was married but unfortunately things changed and now I'm here trying to get back in the work force and I've also decided to go back to nursing school, all the while trying to be strong for my baby girl who is 19 months, " she wrote
