I think it should really only be a problem if you have to travel and rely on public transport.

I was a full time single parent for five years, full time job with unsociable hours and no family to help within two hours.
I managed it.

So that's why you are giving up modelling to higher levels ...


Its none of your business anyway.

Quote from MaoZhu
Call me old fashioned, but why is the child's dad not doing his fair share and looking after the child whilst you work?



Who is this aimed at please?

If me - because he is busy working full time as well.
Shoes give me endorphins, endorphins make me happy, happy models don't stab photographers!

i thought the same

there are alway occasions when a babysitter is required - esspecially if both parents work to support the child (which should be implied by jenny's post as its impossable to raise a child on £300 alone)
300 men have died in lincoln county in the last 3 years...... but what you must remember is i did not shoot them all

i suppose its not easy. but then what other job could fit around your child better than modelling? small hours , great pay and you give yourself more dedication to keep on top of your health and looks. The only problem i seem to have is missing her on trips away and also because the type of level i do and the publishing, whether this will interfere with her life as she gets older.

other than that i think its one of the best jobs a mum could have!

As you are not the OP how can it be aimed at you.

My comment is aimed at some fathers who seem to absolve themselves of all responsibility for child care when the mother is working and jealous fathers that take offence at women that model.

There is no way I am getting at models. I apologise to models if that is what you thought. My gripe is with a lot of men that cant stand their partners modelling and do a runner when baby comes along.

I do not know whether the OP falls into the category that has a partner like that, that is why I raised the question, to provoke a discussion about many mens attitude to these things.

I am not saying if I am pregnant or not, I just made the fourm to see what other young model mums views was on whether they can still have a successful modelling career whilst having a young child.

Men these days do run once the girlfriend is suddenly pregnant and end up on Jeremy Kyle. It's the 21st century sadly. Not many relationships are like the olden days.

*dont let go of something you cant go a day without thinking of* <3
