Will you ever have another one?

May 21, 2008

If not, you could just get a fun widget and pretend. I  have to pass this on, a Pregnancy Clock for your MySpace page. Get it here, and share it with any of your MySpace pals or other bloggers who are expecting. Look, it measures your baby’s progress in real time! Maybe I should make [...]

The Great Dane

May 20, 2008

He had to knock down my door. Well, not literally, but thanks to a visit from Thomas, my friend from Denmark, this single mom was “forced” to spend five days straight with a man. And imagine, being a single man, visiting a long lost friend from college who now has a two year old. Most [...]

Need to save your marriage? Talk to Mort.

May 18, 2008

This post was inspired by Google searches to my blog for “working harder than my husband.” I used to be there. When your man isn’t acting like a man, and you’re taking care of the kids, cleaning the house, cooking and bringing home the bacon – you start to wonder why in the hell you [...]

Single Mama Signing Off (for a few days)

May 16, 2008

I’m taking a few days off. From everything. I’ll be very, very busy – relaxing. Benjamin and I are headed down into the woods – to my hometown for a weekend music festival. We’re taking the Dane with us, my friend from Denmark. We dated in college and until last night hadn’t seen each other [...]

The two bravest single moms I know.

May 16, 2008

Being a single parent is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences a person can go through. But what often can make or break your sanity – is having true friends. And when those friends are also single parents the bond is palpable. You can relate. You can feel each other’s pain and joy. [...]

“They Repeat.”

May 15, 2008

My best friend Mia mouthed this to me the other night while Benjamin and Sydney, her four year old daughter, were huddled beneath us eating cookies. I had been talking about another adult, someone everyone in the room knows and has contact with frequently. Bad mommy. And naive mommy. I may know a lot about [...]

Prince Charming can kiss my ass

May 14, 2008

Once upon a time, I was in love with my son’s father. At the beginning, he would make me breakfast every morning. He would hold me tight and whisper sweet nothings into my ear. We couldn’t get enough of each other. The sexy french accent didn’t help either. And when he told me it was [...]

He texted me again! WTF?

May 13, 2008

Last night I was running around cleaning like crazy. (I have a house guest coming, a very handsome house guest from Denmark and also one of the sweetest men I’ve ever known). So I’m bustling around cleaning as much as I can because Benjamin was at his father’s. Then I hear it. Beeeupp. The text [...]

Under Construction

May 12, 2008

UPDATE: Still under construction – wear your helmets until tomorrow afternoon. Moving over a WordPress blog is no easy feat. ********* Over the next 24-48 hours virtual cranes, bull dozers and sweaty hot men will be working on giving my website a little make over. Wear your helmets and watch for falling debris. Don’t get [...]

Mother’s Day = Pamper Time

May 11, 2008

No husband to pamper me + one adorable two year old son who has no concept of holidays = me, treating myself to a new ring, a new super cute hat and an even cuter new dress! (I know, I splurged. Oh well)

If you haven’t already – go treat yourself. Even if it’s just some new nail polish or a magazine!

And HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY my single mamas!

Did you pamper yourself today too? Were the kids good? So far Benjamin has been especially pleasant, minus dumping an entire bucket of toy dinosaurs out at the store and locking himself in the dressing room. That was fun.
