I will never say that it is easy raising a child on my own, but I still feel very blessed to be able to do this. My ex and I are still on friendly enough terms, but he is not as hands on with our two daughters as I would like him to be. That is something we are working on, and the first step in trying to make it easy on all of us was to look at Jackson apartments for rent that are closer to where he lives with his new wife and their child.
Before I moved into Woodlands Apartments, it would take us about an hour to meet up to either drop off the girls or pick them up. Now that we are living so much closer, it only takes about 15 minutes. It helps that I was able to get a better job in the city, which is the main reason why we ended up moving there in the first place. He is the one who suggested the apartment complex to me, which just goes to show how we are really trying to make this work for the sake of the girls.
It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The rooms are all big, and the girls each have their own bedroom and share a bath. The kitchen and living room are spacious too, and we even have our own washer and dryer in the apartment. I was really hoping that we would not need to use a laundromat because that is just rough with two young children. They even have a playground right here on the property grounds, and there is a pool that we all use when the weather permits. The best part about this is that their father is really trying to be a bigger part of their lives, and it is working.
