Celebrity Single Mom of the Month? Moi?

February 29, 2008

You may have noticed in my Polka Dot Love comment thread…but apparantly I’ve been named the Celebrity Single Mom of the Month. I was so flattered! Anyway – the blog is a great spot to keep up with all of our celebrity counter parts. For example, I just found out that Angelina is pregnant with [...]

Do I Need Therapy? Nope. Just a fantastic comment thread.

February 27, 2008

Do you know yourself? I can’t say that I truly do … yet. But I’m getting a bit closer – thanks to Tim Chard. A man who commented on a post I wrote months ago, titled “Do I Need Therapy?” At the time I had started pushing Kris away…I was acting bitchy, demanding and closing myself off from him intimately. And I didn’t know why.

I stopped and told myself, “if you do this, you’re nuts. Because there is no reason not to be with him right now. He’s perfect!”

I was chatting with my best friend about it and she suggested therapy as an option. After all, since my divorce (technically one year ago but coming close on two since the seperation) I had been dating steadily but after a few weeks – I would drop them like flies. Done and done! See ya! Now, granted, they weren’t the right ones…however, there was a pattern. That pattern being that I was scared of something…of commitment.

Love vs. Lust

February 26, 2008

How do you tell the difference? How do you know if it’s love or lust? I think it feels different. In the case of my ex-husband it was all lust. Our whirlwind marriage ended after just two years and those two years were hell! At first, we were completely in lust. Hell, we could barely [...]

My “man person” is up to something in the kitchen…

February 23, 2008

Kris is painting the top of my kitchen table right now. I’m not looking…he’s saying something about polka dots. I’m a little bit scared…but he wants to paint it – and I don’t! Works out quite nicely. The table recently turned into a doodle table. Meaning anyone was welcome to doodle on the top. Leave [...]

Elmo Death Threat. Freaky toys unite and Fisher Price sucks.

February 23, 2008

You know the drill. Dinner. Bathtime. Bedtime. Clean up time … it’s when your child’s dolls and gizmos come alive in a chorus of freaky phrases as you put them away…”come play with me”… “let’s sing!”…”Kill (insert child’s name here).” Yep. A mother in Florida replaced the batteries in her son’s Fisher Price Elmo Knows Your Name doll and now instead of saying “Hi James,” he’s saying “Kill James.”

February 21, 2008

Did Senator McCain have an affair? The New York Times says there’s a good chance. And it was with a lobbyist. Oops. Here’s an excerpt from the Times article. “Early in Senator John McCain’s first run for the White House eight years ago, waves of anxiety swept through his small circle of advisers. A female [...]

How to Date a Single Mom, Part 2

February 21, 2008

My entry on How to Date a Single Mom (for the guys) has been one of the most popular entries on this blog. I wrote it for one reason…to help the men who have truly fallen for one of us. And then this adorable comment came in the other day. Do you have any advice for a man who has fallen in love with a single mom? What can he do to earn her trust? Should he leave flowers on her doorstep? No, because then the kids would see it. Maybe a letter in the mailbox?
