Sick Thoughts.

by mssinglemama on June 5, 2008

I’m sick. Can’t write much because my brain is going to explode…but I do have some sick thoughts to share, not really sick thoughts, but thoughts I’m having as I sit here – sick.

1. Barack Obama could be the first President of the United States who was raised by a single mother. There are no words for that one. Any one know of any other Presidents raised by single moms? I have been wondering lately about the history of single parents … how often our stories were left out of history books because of shame or that Scarlet Letter. Ronald Regan was a single dad after he divorced his first wife Jane, but he met Nancy less than one year later … not sure if that counts.

2. Benjamin’s tooth will be fine. Dead … but fine. Not sure how dead teeth can be fine, but I’ll take a dead tooth over no tooth any day.

3. I want to buy a bike with a baby seat on the back so Benjamin and I can just ride and ride.

4. Benjamin’s father’s car might not be running next Monday. The last time his car broke down we didn’t see him for 6 weeks.

5. I mailed in my passport renewal today! The countdown to Copenhagen has officially begun … just a little over 8 weeks away now.

6. In one of many sweet e-mails from the Dane he asked me how he could spot single moms… now he’s looking at mothers in a completely different light! SO adorable! I’m telling you – dating a single mom is really amazing for men – we are refreshing, we are real and we raise some pretty amazing kids. But as for spotting us out of a crowd of moms? Look for a wedding ring or dress up your kid in a t-shirt from iHeartSingleParents.comMorgan and Clare, iHeart’s founders are sending me a t-shirt for Benjamin that says – “My Mom is Single – Ask Her Out.” Can’t wait to get it!

Those are my sick thoughts. I HATE being sick.

Take care of yourself babe!… Sleep, drink tea. We need you!

Sorry to hear you’re sick!

On the bike thing — Look for a seat that sits in front of you (between the seat on the bike and the handlebars). It’s a lot easier to balance and is supposedly safer for the child. And have fun! Once you’re not sick anymore, that is.

The t-shirt for Benjamin sounds adorable! I love that idea.
Also, hope you feel better soon.
I had one of the tow behind things for my bike, and Miss B used to bring books in it and read on our long rides.

Can’t stand the sick thoughts myself sometimes…but we all get em and they will go away. I’m looking for a bike too this weekend! I have the baby seat- just need the bike. My little dude and I will both love the feeling of freedom as we ride and ride- can’t wait!

So sorry you are sicky!
I hate being sick too.
I am looking for a bike for this summer too.
So the kids and I can ride and ride and ride!
Check craigslist.
Amazing deals there from what I’ve seen.
Feel better soon.

Aw. Hope you feel better soon.

I agree about the biking. I LOVE it. It’d be fun to know other single parents who bike too.

I like the Obama thoughts too.

And YAY for the Dane. He sounds so awesome….*sigh*

Thats an awesome shirt for your son! hahaha I’m sure it will be a hot item very soon.

My single mother dating experience has come to an abrupt end. =( It was a great relationship and I think dating single mothers brings a whole new level of maturity to dating. Unfortunately, sometimes timing is everything… Don’t want to divulge more than that.

Ohhhhh…feel better luv…….darn spring colds…

I had one of the bikes with the seat. Littleman loved the wind in his face! Mommie loved the workout…but did NOT love the numb-bum when I first started riding it! LOL

Sickness and single motherhood do not mix!

Feel better soon!!

Tks for the bike tips and the well wishes…not sure if this is allergies, a cold or both…

WMT- sorry to hear that, did you meet her son or daughter? If it was “abrupt” I just always worry for the kids. And yes timing is everything single mom or not.
