The Ms. Single Mama Video! (Yeah, I’m a dork.)

March 31, 2008

Just wanted to say hello in person! : )

I LOVE iMacs. I also feel like a HUGE dork for making this but I really, really want to put a voice/face to everything that I’m writing. So here you go. Be nice. Don’t make fun of me too badly, okay?

Jamie Lynn Spears caves and gets engaged.

March 31, 2008

It appears that Jamie Lynn Spears couldn’t handle the idea of being a single mom and is now engaged to the baby’s father. Or is it just a rumor? Who knows…but she was spotted wearing this t-shirt saying “the rumors are true” and a diamond ring. Sigh. Too bad for her. I know it’s none [...]

Need a man? Look in mommy’s bed.

March 30, 2008

Until recently, I enjoyed the pleasure of dating without my little mush brain baby having a clue as to what was going on. But now Benjamin is a very keen toddler who is definitely on to me. If you’ve been reading for a while you know what’s up … but for those who haven’t: 1. [...]

Momma Cum Laude’s daughter is here!!!

March 29, 2008

She’s a college student and also (officially) a single mom. Momma Cum Laude has been blogging about her pregnancy, her fears, her joys, her doubts in the father and everything in between for a few months now.

And today her daughter was born! Anna.

Head over and wish her the best.

I left my husband when Benjamin was just four months old…and even though he was an idiot of a husband, I can’t imagine being without him in those first few months. But Momma Cum Laude is living with her parents and has that much needed support.

There is nothing, nothing in this world harder than caring for a newborn. So hats off to you Momma Cum Laude…we are all sending you calming vibes and hoping you’re getting some sleep. And remember, sleep deprivation is a form of torture. So if you feel like you might absolutely lose your mind…that’s normal.

The best piece of advice I can give you: ask for help if you can. Don’t be too proud. I made that mistake and still do…

Weekend Single Mama Movie: Once

March 29, 2008

When I popped Once in, I couldn’t even remember what it was about. I ordered it from Netflix ages ago. The description says it’s a love story and a musical in Dublin. Oh boy. I usually hate musicals and couldn’t remember why I ordered it … but god am I glad I did. This might [...]

Wow.

March 28, 2008

I had no idea Mark Ecko was so inspiring. He started his own fashion line in the ’90′s. Quality skater clothes. In the New York Times this week there’s a great feature on his trailblazing efforts to break into the fashion industry. Not sure who actually wrote this article because the byline says “By Mark [...]

Single Mama Beauty Tip #1: Tan Towels

March 28, 2008

One of the sexiest things about single moms (for the guys) and one of the most trying (for us) is the fact that we are on top of it … beauty wise. Well, I am anyways. But it’s not easy. I barely have time to shop. And there’s nothing worse than dragging a screaming toddler [...]

Stuff White People Like

March 27, 2008

One of my favorite blogs just got a book deal. Nice. I called that one. StuffWhitePeopleLike.com has only been up for four-months and they’ve had nearly 20,000,000 hits. And no, I didn’t mess up the zeros. Two guys out in California started writing these painfully obvious embarassing facts about white people. Here are my recommendations [...]

Adventures in Potty Training

March 26, 2008

How in the hell is cleaning out a little tiny plastic toilet easier than changing a diaper? Please, please experienced mommies enlighten me. How do you get the little toilet bowl clean? Do I have to scoop it out with a paper towel? Sigh. And Benjamin just took his first pee pee in the potty!!! [...]

I can’t stop listening…

March 25, 2008

to this song. Code: [youtube= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIEOZCcaXzE&feature=related] Not sure but I think the lyrics might be about a son losing his father. Regardless, every once in a while I find a song that just hits me and I listen to it until I’m dancing in my sleep.
