This shit ain’t easy (a bedtime story).

July 31, 2008

Today sucked. Everything caught up with me. Working full-time, being a mom, trying to date – mix all of that with a good dose of self-doubt and you’ve got the ingredients for one grumpy mama. I’m also dead tired. Last night Benjamin kissed me good night and prounced off to my bedroom, jumped into my [...]

Stinky sippy cups.

July 30, 2008

If you’ve ever sniffed a stinky sippy cup and wondered why they sell those things to parents (and rip us off every time)… Read this. Written by a single mother, of course! We’re smart like that.

Lance and Kate Split!

July 30, 2008

So much for our hot Hollywood single parent couple. Kate Hudson and Lance Armstrong broke up. Sad. They were together for 3 months. Here’s an excerpt from the article in US Magazine: “There was no drama or ugliness – They just decided to end things,” a source close to the couple tells Us. “There is [...]

Flirty texts… go away.

July 29, 2008

My phone has been on fire for weeks now. The culprits? A number of men, some of whom I really want to hear from and the others… well, I think they definitely have me in one of those “fish nets.” They cast a text out to a several women they’ve gathered numbers for over time [...]

Fall at your own risk.

July 28, 2008

Just a warning to any of my current or potential suitors. I love you all, I do – but I’m not sure if you’ll get me in the end… because I am not sure about what I’m feeling, I can’t be. I have a son. I have to be very, very careful with my heart. [...]

The case of the missing tomatoes

July 27, 2008

This summer I did something I’ve never done before… I planted six teeny tiny tomato plants. I’m not a gardner. So this, as you can imagine, was quite an accomplishment. I watered them, staked them and then the yellow flowers showed up, then the green tomatoes. And Benjamin, like any 2.4 year old would be, has [...]

The Rebound Year

July 25, 2008

After I left my ex-husband I wanted a new one. Immediately. I had been craving intimacy with him for two years and I was finally free to find it…with anyone. I was so blinded by my own desperation that I would check every man’s left ring finger… no matter who they were. I just wanted [...]

Hello Russians…

July 25, 2008

Hundreds of you have found me through this website. I don’t speak Russian but the website name “Russian-Fiancee” has me wondering what you’re here for. I know you’re definitely reading my eHarmony vs. Yahoo review. But just in case you’re coming for another reason I just want to tell you a few things. 1. I [...]

Video: Cowboy Benjamin thwarts Mommy.

July 24, 2008

On a lighter note … this is hysterical and it’s all real. This Saturday afternoon I let Benjamin entertain himself in front of the recording iMac again. This time I gave him a cowboy hat … but that’s just the beginning. Watch what happens when I show up with some clean clothes.

Pulling teeth, my nerves, and the Dane.

July 24, 2008

Benjamin will probably lose his second front tooth tomorrow. I’ll have to watch them strap him down, gas him and then pull. All of this after they stick a needle into his gums. And I’ll have to do it alone…again. The first time they replaced his cracked tooth with a cap, the second time they [...]
