I'm a single mum & live in a van with my toddler – we wake up in shop car parks, it’s an easy way to start the day | The Sun

A SINGLE mum has shared the reality of living in a van with her toddler – and what it's really like waking up in supermarket car parks.

Jayla Hardimon, who posts under the acronym @thistravelmom, took to TikTok and posted a video which she captioned: "Morning routine living in a van in a Walmart parking lot with a toddler!"

In the clip, she begins: "So of course as soon as I wake up I make sure to give my toddler lots of cuddles and kisses.

"Then I throw on some clothes because it's a little chilly and I want to make sure we're as warm as possible."

Filming her view out of the van window, she continues: "This is our beautiful view of Walmart.

"We don't usually park in parking lots but sometimes that's the case.

"I then make up the bed so I haven't got to do it later on."

Jayla then goes on to explain how they both get out of the van and walk into Walmart to use the toilet and brush their teeth.

"I do have a toilet in my van but we're already sleeping in a Walmart parking lot so we might as well utilise all of their services," she says.

The single mum goes on to say that since she didn't need anything in Walmart, they were both able to just run back to the van.

"Today we're making something very simple – sausage, pancakes and hash browns.

"But this is only a pit stop until we get to our next destination."
