The Sex in the City Trailer! OMG!!!!! (I’m a dork)

1. House Hunt

On hold because spring has sprung and I can’t bear the thought of leaving my cute downtown neighborhood with all of the coffee shops, parks, shops and men!

2. Finding a Sitter

I found one! She clicked with Benjamin right away – got down on her knees to talk to him and we spent an entire afternoon together. She’s coming over tonight to babysit, but alas, I’m sick! Just my luck. I’m going to have her come anyway. Might just go to the coffee shop or a book store for some much needed “me” time. A night out with my single girlfriends is so tempting (it’s been weeks and weeks) but then I’d feel even worse tomorrow.

3. The Firestation

I’m planning on making a trip tomorrow morning…if I feel better. Should be very interesting and I’ll report back immediately.

Every once in a while I post a Single Mom S.O.S. The first time for my friend Abby who was trying to figure out how to explain a break up to her daughter and now for another single mom, Tricia. The dilemma – her ex-husband wants to fight for full-custody of their oldest son, a 9-year-old.

First some facts. Tricia is amazing. She is light, happy, full of optimism and she loves her two boys.

Since their divorce in July she and her ex-husband have had 50/50 split custody of the kids. She says, “I didn’t fight for full custody because he’s a great father, and my father was so important to me. I want him to be very involved in their lives.”

Now, less than one year later, her son says he wants to live with Daddy full-time and his father is not only encouraging this notion, but threatening to go to court.

You can imagine the emotional pain she’s feeling right now. He’s nine and he doesn’t know any better…but still. She also says her ex-husband has been encouraging the idea. To make matters worse he is also threatening to take the fight to court.

My theory:

Her son is having some natural anxiety over the recent divorce and feels torn, but wants to be back in his old house with dad. (Tricia is the one who moved out to a new house)

We need your help. She’s reading this … so please, any legal tips, any advice on how to talk her son out of this. Anything at all would be helpful. This is just breaking my heart. I can’t even imagine…

Can a father even legally do this if the mother is 100% fit to care for her children?

P.S. Tricia is not on drugs or anything crazy like that and how could a father encourage 9-year-old to want this? Seems like he’s playing on the poor kids vulnerability and emotions right now.

I know most of you have probably already seen this (because you have TVs). But I just found it. So, because I’m obsessed with Sex and the City, must pass it on.

They give away a lot in this trailer. Charlotte is pregnant! Samantha isn’t with Smith??? And Carrie’s wedding gets too… Big?

If you were a Sex and the City character who would you be? I think I’m a nice mix of all four …

YIPPEE!!! I haven’t seen that yet — I’m SO there as soon as it comes out.

And me? A combo of Carrie and Samantha. (More Carrie — the STAR of course …)

That’s easy… bad choices in men and too many shoes I can’t afford: I’m Carrie all the way. And maybe a smidge of Miranda’s cynicism thrown in for good measure.

By the way, just found your blog & loving it! Had no idea there were so many single mom bloggers out there.
