Doggy, Doggy!!! Or not…

Forget all of that tooth whitening junk – just get an automatic tooth brush.

Years ago I bought my first automatic toothbrush, at the advice of my dentist. I forked over $99.00 and felt incredibly guilty until I had been using it for two weeks. My teeth were white and so incredibly clean. The toothbrush, the original Sonicare, lasted for 4 years until last summer when then baby Benjamin stole it away, banged it a few times and then hid it from me.

As a single mom, money is always tight and so I held out, hoping to find it. In the meantime, I used an old fashioned brush and my teeth quickly lost their white, felt grimy and even had spots of color on them from my whitening toothpaste.I finally found it months later deep in a decorative vase (and this was only after Benjamin had broken said vase). The brush was broken too. Again, I resisted buying a new one until I saw the Sonicare at its new price – $59.99 (Target) and $58.53 on Amazon

I know it seems like a ton of money for a toothbrush but your teeth will thank you for it and if you don’t have good dental insurance consider it an investment in your oral health.

Before writing this post Oral B contacted me asking me to try out the new Oral B Pulsonic toothbrush. I agreed but promised to give an honest review. I still love my Sonicare hands down, but with that said, the Pulsonic is perfect for traveling. It’s small, light weight and quiet. 

Here’s my review of both toothbrushes:

Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 – $ 58.53 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Powerful yet soft bristles
  • Super deep clean
  • Easy to grip (if you have man hands like myself)
  • Rechargeable
  • Replace head every 6 months
  • Phenomenal white smile!

No cons!

 

 

 

Oral B Pulsonic Automatic Toothbrush – $69.99 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Hard bristles 
  • Quiet
  • Perfect for traveling (I took mine to Denmark)
  • Stylish
  • Includes slim precision bristle head for between teeth
  • Rechargeable

Cons:

  • Hard bristles (listed it as a pro and a con b/c it depends on your preference)
  • More expensive

I hope you liked me little reviews and I hope you treat yourselves to one of these amazing brushes, always ready for kisses from Prince Charming, Mr. Right Now, Mr. Good Enough or Mr. In Between. Whoever he is, you’ll be wowing him with your smile. But more importantly you’ll be wowing yourself!

Years ago I bought my first automatic toothbrush, at the advice of my dentist. I forked over $99.00 and felt incredibly guilty until I had been using it for two weeks. My teeth were white and so incredibly clean. The toothbrush, the original Sonicare, lasted for 4 years until last summer when then baby Benjamin stole it away, banged it a few times and then hid it from me.

As a single mom, money is always tight and so I held out, hoping to find it. In the meantime, I used an old fashioned brush and my teeth quickly lost their white, felt grimy and even had spots of color on them from my whitening toothpaste.I finally found it months later deep in a decorative vase (and this was only after Benjamin had broken said vase). The brush was broken too. Again, I resisted buying a new one until I saw the Sonicare at its new price – $59.99 (Target) and $58.53 on Amazon

I know it seems like a ton of money for a toothbrush but your teeth will thank you for it and if you don’t have good dental insurance consider it an investment in your oral health.

Before writing this post Oral B contacted me asking me to try out the new Oral B Pulsonic toothbrush. I agreed but promised to give an honest review. I still love my Sonicare hands down, but with that said, the Pulsonic is perfect for traveling. It’s small, light weight and quiet. 

Here’s my review of both toothbrushes:

Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 – $ 58.53 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Powerful yet soft bristles
  • Super deep clean
  • Easy to grip (if you have man hands like myself)
  • Rechargeable
  • Replace head every 6 months
  • Phenomenal white smile!

No cons!

 

 

 

Oral B Pulsonic Automatic Toothbrush – $69.99 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Hard bristles 
  • Quiet
  • Perfect for traveling (I took mine to Denmark)
  • Stylish
  • Includes slim precision bristle head for between teeth
  • Rechargeable

Cons:

  • Hard bristles (listed it as a pro and a con b/c it depends on your preference)
  • More expensive

I’m about to psycho-analyze myself. I’ll try to tell you a good story or two also.

My brain on a shelf for public consumption. Why? Why do I do this? Sometimes I feel incredibly embarrassed. This is crazy… revealing all of these secrets to strangers and co-workers or anyone who Googles my full name.

It’s a tad embarrassing but I’m the lamb. I’ve been dating now for over two years. Now, two years after leaving my ex-husband, 3 ex-boyfriends and dozens upon dozens of dates later – I like to think I’m an authority on this stuff – but am I? Perhaps. If I am it’s only because I share everything… all in the name of passing on what I’ve learned or am learning to other single parents. A small price to pay for happier single moms and dads and therefore – happier kidlets.

So here goes…

I think I’m finished with Mr. Right Now.

The only experience I can offer is my day to day dating ups and downs. In reality, my dating status is not on the forefront of my mind.

For example: I have a date on Tuesday. Actually it’s a non-date, but he doesn’t know that yet.  Find out why on Twitter (less crowded there so I dish even more). I want to tell you more but there’s something else on my mind. Short and sweet. He’s a single dad and we met at Barnes & Noble, he has a beautiful three-year-old and a great job.

The idea of going out on a date is insane to me. I’m going out with a complete stranger to spend 2 hours or maybe 3 at a Fratelli’s concert. Long story short.`

All so we don’t feel alone right? Because how many women can say they are mothers and single? Throw dating in there and that’s enough to make anyone’s head spin.

What if I’m still in love with my Mr. Right Now?

Damn it.

How do you tell the difference between love and lust? I thought I had it figured out…

I have a date Tuesday night. But it’s not really a date. The guy just doesn’t know that yet.

How do you tell someone you just met… someone who asked you out at Barnes & Noble (after one hour of conversation with the kids at the Thomas table). A single dad, no less. A single dad is clearly interested in me that he doesn’t stand a chance? That he’s fighting Mr. Right Now?

I’m debating telling him. He has every right to know what he’s up against. And then there’s that whole spark thing. Not sure there was a spark. An intellectual spark, without a doubt. An adorable father spark, definitely. But a physical spark? Verdict is out. Follow me on Twitter and you can find out why.

P.S.

If I eat my words and Fratelli’s guy works out this post my diappear. (I also usually give up my blog or they find it by Googling my last name, hence my revealing things on Twitter – it’s less crowded in there.

I hope you liked me little reviews and I hope you treat yourselves to one of these amazing brushes, always ready for kisses from Prince Charming, Mr. Right Now, Mr. Good Enough or Mr. In Between. Whoever he is, you’ll be wowing him with your smile. But more importantly you’ll be wowing yourself!

Forget all of that tooth whitening junk – just get an automatic tooth brush.

Years ago I bought my first automatic toothbrush, at the advice of my dentist. I forked over $99.00 and felt incredibly guilty until I had been using it for two weeks. My teeth were white and so incredibly clean. The toothbrush, the original Sonicare, lasted for 4 years until last summer when then baby Benjamin stole it away, banged it a few times and then hid it from me.

As a single mom, money is always tight and so I held out, hoping to find it. In the meantime, I used an old fashioned brush and my teeth quickly lost their white, felt grimy and even had spots of color on them from my whitening toothpaste.I finally found it months later deep in a decorative vase (and this was only after Benjamin had broken said vase). The brush was broken too. Again, I resisted buying a new one until I saw the Sonicare at its new price – $59.99 (Target) and $58.53 on Amazon

I know it seems like a ton of money for a toothbrush but your teeth will thank you for it and if you don’t have good dental insurance consider it an investment in your oral health.

Before writing this post Oral B contacted me asking me to try out the new Oral B Pulsonic toothbrush. I agreed but promised to give an honest review. I still love my Sonicare hands down, but with that said, the Pulsonic is perfect for traveling. It’s small, light weight and quiet. 

Here’s my review of both toothbrushes:

Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 – $ 58.53 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Powerful yet soft bristles
  • Super deep clean
  • Easy to grip (if you have man hands like myself)
  • Rechargeable
  • Replace head every 6 months
  • Phenomenal white smile!

No cons!

 

 

 

Oral B Pulsonic Automatic Toothbrush – $69.99 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Hard bristles 
  • Quiet
  • Perfect for traveling (I took mine to Denmark)
  • Stylish
  • Includes slim precision bristle head for between teeth
  • Rechargeable

Cons:

  • Hard bristles (listed it as a pro and a con b/c it depends on your preference)
  • More expensive

I’m about to psycho-analyze myself. I’ll try to tell you a good story or two also.

My brain on a shelf for public consumption. Why? Why do I do this? Sometimes I feel incredibly embarrassed. This is crazy… revealing all of these secrets to strangers and co-workers or anyone who Googles my full name.

It’s a tad embarrassing but I’m the lamb. I’ve been dating now for over two years. Now, two years after leaving my ex-husband, 3 ex-boyfriends and dozens upon dozens of dates later – I like to think I’m an authority on this stuff – but am I? Perhaps. If I am it’s only because I share everything… all in the name of passing on what I’ve learned or am learning to other single parents. A small price to pay for happier single moms and dads and therefore – happier kidlets.

So here goes…

I think I’m finished with Mr. Right Now.

The only experience I can offer is my day to day dating ups and downs. In reality, my dating status is not on the forefront of my mind.

For example: I have a date on Tuesday. Actually it’s a non-date, but he doesn’t know that yet.  Find out why on Twitter (less crowded there so I dish even more). I want to tell you more but there’s something else on my mind. Short and sweet. He’s a single dad and we met at Barnes & Noble, he has a beautiful three-year-old and a great job.

The idea of going out on a date is insane to me. I’m going out with a complete stranger to spend 2 hours or maybe 3 at a Fratelli’s concert. Long story short.`

All so we don’t feel alone right? Because how many women can say they are mothers and single? Throw dating in there and that’s enough to make anyone’s head spin.

What if I’m still in love with my Mr. Right Now?

Damn it.

How do you tell the difference between love and lust? I thought I had it figured out…

I have a date Tuesday night. But it’s not really a date. The guy just doesn’t know that yet.

How do you tell someone you just met… someone who asked you out at Barnes & Noble (after one hour of conversation with the kids at the Thomas table). A single dad, no less. A single dad is clearly interested in me that he doesn’t stand a chance? That he’s fighting Mr. Right Now?

I’m debating telling him. He has every right to know what he’s up against. And then there’s that whole spark thing. Not sure there was a spark. An intellectual spark, without a doubt. An adorable father spark, definitely. But a physical spark? Verdict is out. Follow me on Twitter and you can find out why.

P.S.

If I eat my words and Fratelli’s guy works out this post my diappear. (I also usually give up my blog or they find it by Googling my last name, hence my revealing things on Twitter – it’s less crowded in there.

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Hard bristles 
  • Quiet
  • Perfect for traveling (I took mine to Denmark)
  • Stylish
  • Includes slim precision bristle head for between teeth
  • Rechargeable

Cons:

  • Hard bristles (listed it as a pro and a con b/c it depends on your preference)
  • More expensive

I hope you liked me little reviews and I hope you treat yourselves to one of these amazing brushes, always ready for kisses from Prince Charming, Mr. Right Now, Mr. Good Enough or Mr. In Between. Whoever he is, you’ll be wowing him with your smile. But more importantly you’ll be wowing yourself!

Forget all of that tooth whitening junk – just get an automatic tooth brush.

Years ago I bought my first automatic toothbrush, at the advice of my dentist. I forked over $99.00 and felt incredibly guilty until I had been using it for two weeks. My teeth were white and so incredibly clean. The toothbrush, the original Sonicare, lasted for 4 years until last summer when then baby Benjamin stole it away, banged it a few times and then hid it from me.

As a single mom, money is always tight and so I held out, hoping to find it. In the meantime, I used an old fashioned brush and my teeth quickly lost their white, felt grimy and even had spots of color on them from my whitening toothpaste.

I finally found it months later deep in a decorative vase (and this was only after Benjamin had broken said vase). The brush was broken too. Again, I resisted buying a new one until I saw the Sonicare at its new price – $59.99 (Target) and $58.53 on Amazon.

I know it seems like a ton of money for a toothbrush but your teeth will thank you for it and if you don’t have good dental insurance consider it an investment in your oral health.

Before writing this post Oral B contacted me asking me to try out the new Oral B Pulsonic toothbrush. I agreed but promised to give an honest review. I still love my Sonicare hands down, but with that said, the Pulsonic is perfect for traveling. It’s small, light weight and quiet. 

Here’s my review of both toothbrushes:

Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 – $ 58.53 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Powerful yet soft bristles
  • Super deep clean
  • Easy to grip (if you have man hands like myself)
  • Rechargeable
  • Replace head every 6 months
  • Phenomenal white smile!

No cons!

I’m about to psycho-analyze myself. I’ll try to tell you a good story or two also.

My brain on a shelf for public consumption. Why? Why do I do this? Sometimes I feel incredibly embarrassed. This is crazy… revealing all of these secrets to strangers and co-workers or anyone who Googles my full name.

It’s a tad embarrassing but I’m the lamb. I’ve been dating now for over two years. Now, two years after leaving my ex-husband, 3 ex-boyfriends and dozens upon dozens of dates later – I like to think I’m an authority on this stuff – but am I? Perhaps. If I am it’s only because I share everything… all in the name of passing on what I’ve learned or am learning to other single parents. A small price to pay for happier single moms and dads and therefore – happier kidlets.

So here goes…

I think I’m finished with Mr. Right Now.

The only experience I can offer is my day to day dating ups and downs. In reality, my dating status is not on the forefront of my mind.

For example: I have a date on Tuesday. Actually it’s a non-date, but he doesn’t know that yet.  Find out why on Twitter (less crowded there so I dish even more). I want to tell you more but there’s something else on my mind. Short and sweet. He’s a single dad and we met at Barnes & Noble, he has a beautiful three-year-old and a great job.

The idea of going out on a date is insane to me. I’m going out with a complete stranger to spend 2 hours or maybe 3 at a Fratelli’s concert. Long story short.`

All so we don’t feel alone right? Because how many women can say they are mothers and single? Throw dating in there and that’s enough to make anyone’s head spin.

What if I’m still in love with my Mr. Right Now?

Damn it.

How do you tell the difference between love and lust? I thought I had it figured out…

I have a date Tuesday night. But it’s not really a date. The guy just doesn’t know that yet.

How do you tell someone you just met… someone who asked you out at Barnes & Noble (after one hour of conversation with the kids at the Thomas table). A single dad, no less. A single dad is clearly interested in me that he doesn’t stand a chance? That he’s fighting Mr. Right Now?

I’m debating telling him. He has every right to know what he’s up against. And then there’s that whole spark thing. Not sure there was a spark. An intellectual spark, without a doubt. An adorable father spark, definitely. But a physical spark? Verdict is out. Follow me on Twitter and you can find out why.

P.S.

If I eat my words and Fratelli’s guy works out this post my diappear. (I also usually give up my blog or they find it by Googling my last name, hence my revealing things on Twitter – it’s less crowded in there.

Forget all of that tooth whitening junk – just get an automatic tooth brush.

Years ago I bought my first automatic toothbrush, at the advice of my dentist. I forked over $99.00 and felt incredibly guilty until I had been using it for two weeks. My teeth were white and so incredibly clean. The toothbrush, the original Sonicare, lasted for 4 years until last summer when then baby Benjamin stole it away, banged it a few times and then hid it from me.

As a single mom, money is always tight and so I held out, hoping to find it. In the meantime, I used an old fashioned brush and my teeth quickly lost their white, felt grimy and even had spots of color on them from my whitening toothpaste.I finally found it months later deep in a decorative vase (and this was only after Benjamin had broken said vase). The brush was broken too. Again, I resisted buying a new one until I saw the Sonicare at its new price – $59.99 (Target) and $58.53 on Amazon

I know it seems like a ton of money for a toothbrush but your teeth will thank you for it and if you don’t have good dental insurance consider it an investment in your oral health.

Before writing this post Oral B contacted me asking me to try out the new Oral B Pulsonic toothbrush. I agreed but promised to give an honest review. I still love my Sonicare hands down, but with that said, the Pulsonic is perfect for traveling. It’s small, light weight and quiet. 

Here’s my review of both toothbrushes:

Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 – $ 58.53 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Powerful yet soft bristles
  • Super deep clean
  • Easy to grip (if you have man hands like myself)
  • Rechargeable
  • Replace head every 6 months
  • Phenomenal white smile!

No cons!

 

 

 

Oral B Pulsonic Automatic Toothbrush – $69.99 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Hard bristles 
  • Quiet
  • Perfect for traveling (I took mine to Denmark)
  • Stylish
  • Includes slim precision bristle head for between teeth
  • Rechargeable

Cons:

  • Hard bristles (listed it as a pro and a con b/c it depends on your preference)
  • More expensive

I hope you liked me little reviews and I hope you treat yourselves to one of these amazing brushes, always ready for kisses from Prince Charming, Mr. Right Now, Mr. Good Enough or Mr. In Between. Whoever he is, you’ll be wowing him with your smile. But more importantly you’ll be wowing yourself!

Before writing this post Oral B contacted me asking me to try out the new Oral B Pulsonic toothbrush. I agreed but promised to give an honest review. I still love my Sonicare hands down, but with that said, the Pulsonic is perfect for traveling. It’s small, light weight and quiet. 

Here’s my review of both toothbrushes:

Philips Sonicare Essence 5300 – $ 58.53 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Powerful yet soft bristles
  • Super deep clean
  • Easy to grip (if you have man hands like myself)
  • Rechargeable
  • Replace head every 6 months
  • Phenomenal white smile!

No cons!

 

 

 

Oral B Pulsonic Automatic Toothbrush – $69.99 on Amazon

Pros:

  • Lightweight
  • Hard bristles 
  • Quiet
  • Perfect for traveling (I took mine to Denmark)
  • Stylish
  • Includes slim precision bristle head for between teeth
  • Rechargeable

Cons:

  • Hard bristles (listed it as a pro and a con b/c it depends on your preference)
  • More expensive

I hope you liked me little reviews and I hope you treat yourselves to one of these amazing brushes, always ready for kisses from Prince Charming, Mr. Right Now, Mr. Good Enough or Mr. In Between. Whoever he is, you’ll be wowing him with your smile. But more importantly you’ll be wowing yourself!

Forget all of that tooth whitening junk – just get an automatic tooth brush.

Years ago I bought my first automatic toothbrush, at the advice of my dentist. I forked over $99.00 and felt incredibly guilty until I had been using it for two weeks. My teeth were white and so incredibly clean. The toothbrush, the original Sonicare, lasted for 4 years until last summer when then baby Benjamin stole it away, banged it a few times and then hid it from me.

As a single mom, money is always tight and so I held out, hoping to find it. In the meantime, I used an old fashioned brush and my teeth quickly lost their white, felt grimy and even had spots of color on them from my whitening toothpaste.

I finally found it months later deep in a decorative vase (and this was only after Benjamin had broken said vase). The brush was broken too. Again, I resisted buying a new one until I saw the Sonicare at its new price – $59.99 (Target) and $58.53 on Amazon.

I’m about to psycho-analyze myself. I’ll try to tell you a good story or two also.

My brain on a shelf for public consumption. Why? Why do I do this? Sometimes I feel incredibly embarrassed. This is crazy… revealing all of these secrets to strangers and co-workers or anyone who Googles my full name.

It’s a tad embarrassing but I’m the lamb. I’ve been dating now for over two years. Now, two years after leaving my ex-husband, 3 ex-boyfriends and dozens upon dozens of dates later – I like to think I’m an authority on this stuff – but am I? Perhaps. If I am it’s only because I share everything… all in the name of passing on what I’ve learned or am learning to other single parents. A small price to pay for happier single moms and dads and therefore – happier kidlets.

So here goes…

I think I’m finished with Mr. Right Now.

The only experience I can offer is my day to day dating ups and downs. In reality, my dating status is not on the forefront of my mind.

For example: I have a date on Tuesday. Actually it’s a non-date, but he doesn’t know that yet.  Find out why on Twitter (less crowded there so I dish even more). I want to tell you more but there’s something else on my mind. Short and sweet. He’s a single dad and we met at Barnes & Noble, he has a beautiful three-year-old and a great job.

The idea of going out on a date is insane to me. I’m going out with a complete stranger to spend 2 hours or maybe 3 at a Fratelli’s concert. Long story short.`

All so we don’t feel alone right? Because how many women can say they are mothers and single? Throw dating in there and that’s enough to make anyone’s head spin.

What if I’m still in love with my Mr. Right Now?

Damn it.

How do you tell the difference between love and lust? I thought I had it figured out…

I have a date Tuesday night. But it’s not really a date. The guy just doesn’t know that yet.

How do you tell someone you just met… someone who asked you out at Barnes & Noble (after one hour of conversation with the kids at the Thomas table). A single dad, no less. A single dad is clearly interested in me that he doesn’t stand a chance? That he’s fighting Mr. Right Now?

I’m debating telling him. He has every right to know what he’s up against. And then there’s that whole spark thing. Not sure there was a spark. An intellectual spark, without a doubt. An adorable father spark, definitely. But a physical spark? Verdict is out. Follow me on Twitter and you can find out why.

P.S.

If I eat my words and Fratelli’s guy works out this post my diappear. (I also usually give up my blog or they find it by Googling my last name, hence my revealing things on Twitter – it’s less crowded in there.

This afternoon Benjamin and I had just finished a major parent child scuffle over him refusing to clean up the legos he had just dumped on the floor.

I lost it. He lost it. Not pretty people. But it happens.

Then in my moment of pure pissed-off parental despair I opened the kitchen door and saw her…

The horrible lego moment vanished and Benjamin and I went into full “It’s a Doggy – now what do we do?” freak out mode. She was lost, no name tags or phone number.

First we gave her water. Benjamin and I working like a team in tandem. Then we took off knocking on doors. No stroller, no bicycle – just little Benjamin and I trouncing around from house to house with this sweet, little dog. No luck.

We rushed to the pet store, bought some food and a leash. And then, four hours after we found her, the owner showed up.

You would think Benjamin would throw a tantrum or pout. After all he’d just spent the entire night gushing over this dog. But, no. He just said, “Bye, Doggy.” (Our name for her).

So, now in my silent house I’ve been surfing… online, looking at pets up for adoption. I have my eye on this one and by eye I mean heart…

Her name is “Mama.” How weird is that? Not sure if she’s single or not… but I’m assuming she’s not dating the guy who’s grabbing her chest. Destiny. Fate. Is there a little brown dog in our future?

What do you think? How many of you have dogs? Could I handle a dog along with everything else on my plate?

Talk me down from the ledge. I’ve been known to do crazier things and am completely impulsive in matters of the heart, even when my target is a little, smelly fur ball. Please, I beg of you. This could be catastrophic.

I think every little boy should have a dog. We’d have one in a heartbeat, if our lease would allow it.

Please, oh please, dear Ms. Single Mama don’t do it!!! I said “maybe” once to a puppy… which my kids and my ex took to mean “sure bring one home after a daddy visit!” Now I have a dog. I am not personally an animal lover but still – it has complicated my life more than I care to explain. Not the least of which is the fact that you can never “just go” anywhere anymore. You have another child to plan around and care for. I don’t know about you, but one more kid for this single momma wasn’t really such a great idea. Though it is worth mentioning that I’m a single mom of four so perhaps that complicates things further? I don’t know!!!

I agree with Mommaliss…(though I DO love animals) However, I have thee THREE munkees…I don’t have the time, space, nor desire for a “REAL” pet to be added into the mix right now. We have fish…I conceded to fish. Initially, we had hermit crabs…

I used to have two dogs… man that was a LOT of work. If you’ve never had a dog before, let me give you a sneak peek into my world with dogs. Every carpet was soiled at one point or another. I had my carpet steamer on pretty much more than the sweeper. Everything at “dog level” was chewed on to some degree. They had a particular affinity for underwear they would take out of the dirty clothes basket. Curtains however were not out of the question either. Bed skirts, shirts hanging to dry, tablecloths, you name it.. eaten.

I will never own another dog.

I’m a single mom of a son your age (you know that though.) I also have a dog. I had him before I had my son. He is a very well-behaved dog.

But having a dog as a single mom is hard. It’s hard to squeeze in walks. When you’re exhausted and have just plopped down on the couch for some R&R, the dog needs some more water, or to go to the bathroom. And, the dog doesn’t get a lot of attention, because the toddler needs most of that, which can sometimes lead to a chewed-up toy or two.

It’s hard, but not impossible. But I sometimes feel like it’s just one more added stressor to a very stress-filled life. I wouldn’t recommend it right now–maybe when Benjamin is a little older.

My dog (about 50 lbs) tends to knock Son over from time to time (moreso when Son was a little smaller), but they mostly get along great (although Son has a sudden, LOUD dislike for when the dog licks him.) I think they’ll be great friends soon enough, but it’s going to take a few years. My friends have two sons and they have a smaller, tiny dog, and the kids always ask when they are going to get a “real” dog. 🙂

I prefer cats to dogs, in terms of having one in our house. Cats are much more low maintenance. But if you get a dog that’s already house-trained, a bit older, and you have an enclosed yard, it’s worth considering.

Super cute! I have three children, 90% custody and two cats and a dog. We got him end of Feb as a new puppy (just 2 mths old) and it was the best thing we could have done! He has done wonders for me and the kids.

But, I know it isn’t for everyone but just wanted to give you a success story. 🙂

Good luck with your decision.

I was just coming back to say maybe you should get a cat, for starters, but April beat me to it!

And on re-read, I didn’t mean to sound super neg against dogs. I really love my dog, although it can all be a bit much sometimes. It might be a touch easier for you to handle when Benjamin is a bit older.

Wow… was completely off of the ledge until I read EJ’s comment.

SWM and April – I have 2 cats! I just never write about them b/c they’re SO low maintenance. Indoor-outdoor kitties.

Okay. Still teetering… but leaning toward No.

Thanks SO much everyone.

Katie September 7, 2008 at 2:40 pm

Yeah, I grew up with dogs and we had one for the past six or seven years, but I ended up giving custody of her back to the ex. She hated living her because she was always in a crate, he kept the house with the big fenced in backyard. I loved/love that dog, but she was a lot of extra work, and when I finally had me time and wanted to just get away, I had to worry about her as well, so it just made more sense for him to keep her and at least the kiddo still gets to see his doggy.

I love dogs and had one long before I had children. I had to put her down due to cancer when my oldest was a year old. I’d love to have another dog and so would the kids. I just don’t think I can handle another living thing asking for more of me. Just my .02.

Katie September 7, 2008 at 4:29 pm

Wanted to add, we do now have a hamster. But much more low maintenance to take care of then a dog. Once the boy is older, we may get another but not now.

I started a nonprofit organization for animals 10 years ago and ran it for 5 years. I have cats and dogs that I took in during that time. I also have a 14 month old son and work 45 minutes out of town. My cats are so easy. I have one sitting on my lap now. My dogs are not so easy. I have to rush home to let them out after work so they don’t have an accident. I have trouble walking them with my son and I have to try to exercise them every night by throwing a ball for them while my son wants me to play with him. I am all about people adopting animals because so many are killed every year because of overpopulation (EVERYONE-PLEASE SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS!!!!). That being said, I think a small adult dog would be a good addition to your little family if you have a fenced in yard. Benjamin is older than my son and could walk with you when you walk the dog. I have to try to push a stroller while I hold the leash which if difficult with big dogs.

I think it’s good for kids to have a dog. That said, we just got a puppy a month ago and now I’m wishing I had waited. It’s no fun potty training a toddler and a puppy at the same time!

I have a dog MSM. My beloved greyhound. 🙂 He retired from racing 2.5 years ago and found his forever home with Emilee and I two years ago. And while it does take extra work, definitely extra money (vet bills, grooming, dog food, etc) it’s worth it to me. No one else, even Em, gets that excited when I get home from work. 😉

I wavered for months about getting a dog. Did I want more responsibility? What if the kids hate it? What if I hate it? I was worried about potty trainng, cleaning up after a dog and 2 kids, remembering to feed the poor thing.

I finally decided that it was worth it. About a month ago, we got a 2 month old black lab. He is well behaved, already potty trained and very smart. Yes, he does knock over the kids and he does chew up some stuff and he does jump on me just as I am walking out the door.

But I would not give him up for anything. At night, when I am lonely or frustrated, I go outside and throw his toy for him. He is affectionate and loving to me and the kids.

They love giving him treats and playing fetch and knowing that this puppy belongs to them.

P.S. We also have an outside cat and 2 new kittens.

Personally, I can’t live without at least one dog in the house. To the uninitiated, this sounds like a bold statement, and it is. Do you have a friend’s dog you could borrow for a while, just to test your mettle against these furry, adorable little homewreckers?

Single Mom in New England September 8, 2008 at 11:07 am

I would say only do it IF you have a fenced back yard. (You can just open the door and let him go out and do his thing by himself on a cold winter morning, you can leave him outside all day in nice weather – giving you freedom – else your life with be on HIS peepee schedule – gotta get home by 6 to let the dog out – you get the idea!!)

I would love love love a dog, but it would have to be a big, floppy couch dog that liked to sleep 18 hours a day, since I work full time and currently live in a 800 sq ft apartment. No yard, no time, I feel like I would just neglect it.

I already feel guilty for not having enough time with my daughter, I don’t know if I can add anymore guilt.

Oh boy, that’s one hell of a question. The right dog (well behaved) would fit really well in your life but a the wrong one could throw you into a tailspin. It really, really depends on the dog.

It’s a gamble when you buy a dog. I don’t want to say they’re like a box of chocolates, but you know what I mean.

I’ll be saying a silent prayer that your future dog doesn’t have the same coprophagia problem that Little Filthy has. 😛

You guys are again – killing me – so… why hasn’t anyone commented on Mama? Isn’t she cute?

I e-mailed the owner to find out, like Random said – what kind of a dog she is… I’ll keep you all posted.

Thank you SO much for your advice. I’m still up in the air. That’s good though – I’m calmly and rationally thinking about it – just thinking.

I know there are a lot of comments that have sprouted from this post, but take it from me, a single mama myself-dogs are a lot of work for us single parents. It would have made going to Denmark a lot harder, trust me. I had two pure bread boxers and just recently my best friend adopted one of them because I was threatening to put both of them up for adoption. It was a lot of work for me with 2 dogs and a toddler-I had to do something. Now I am down to one dog, a toddler and myself. It’s doable, but it makes picking up and leaving for a long weekend a drag. You have to find someone to watch the dog, and if you have a situation similar to mine, someone to watch your child as well. People are a lot more willing to watch your babe rather than a drooling hounddog.They are great for companionship and security (my boxer is 70 lbs and looks like a pit-bull) but require a lot of your time and attention. Right now, as a working single mama, there aren’t enough hours in the day to spend with your baby, let alone, a dog.

I love my dog, but she is a lot of work! The hardest is always being home to walk her. You can’t go out of town unless you can find someone to walk her. Dogs are also expensive – vet bills, shots, food, kennel for vacations. Its tough as a single mom to swing that. On the plus side, I love having the dog when I am alone. When my daughter is at her dad’s, its nice to have her to walk and cuddle up with night.

Don’t do it! i borrowed my cousin’s dog last weekend – a 2-yr old mini daschund. Where to begin…the 7 am wake-up to her pissing on my bed? Having to schedule my kid-free weekend around her schedule? Standing out in the rain at 11 pm waiting for her to do her business?

By all means, borrow a dog. Offer to dog-sit for friends. Maybe look into fostering thru your local rescue organization. But consider that a dog will mean extra expenses and that smelly dog scent permeating your home and never again being able to take off for a weekend music festival w/o first arranging for dog care…

Okay. I’m off the ledge entirely.

No dog.

But today Benjamin was asking for one. Thanks to all of your comments I will resist. I never had a dog as a kid, so it would be completely alien to me.

Heather September 9, 2008 at 10:18 am

Haha, I’m glad that you decided on no dog. I, too, was considering one a few months ago. For some reason I had a BAD case of baby fever, and a friend had a litter of puppies to get rid of and they’re kinda like babies, right? lmao. So glad I didn’t do it. Dogs are A LOT of work. I’m a nanny, and the family I work for has a dog and it’s a total pain in my rear.
We have a fish. Sometimes the fish is too much work for me! (As we were packing the car to go to the beach last week, I realized that the fish needed to be fed while we were gone. I almost completely forgot about him. Thank goodness for neighbors.)

EJ/Txgambit September 9, 2008 at 5:49 pm

Well it is a tough decision but glad you have made one. And since you have no experience with dogs, per your last comment, I think you can take some time now to do some research on dog care, etc…

While I did say I have a dog now, I should have mentioned it took me about 3 yrs to get him. I have always had dogs! Always. My ex was not a dog person and we tried time and time again to get one.

Well I waited for a while after the divorce to get one, just to make sure we could do it. it is hard enough just taking care of the kids alone!

Anyway, just wanted to add that.

How can you NOT have a dog? My two dogs died of cancer last summer (Tango aged 11 and Marley aged 12), I’d had them since they were puppies and they LOVED Declan. Was it hard having a baby and two dogs? Hells yeah! But I cannot imagine not having any critters in my life for very long. As soon as we move to Seattle, the hunt for a doggy to adopt is *on*!

OK, yeah. You can’t just leave the house for 10+ hours without considering that doggy will need water, love, food. You can’t just leave town without having a good doggy sitter or kennel you trust. There will be muddy paws, hair EVERYWHERE, doggy smells, doggy breath, doggy poop. But at the end of the day, the love you’ll give/get from said doggy will be wonderfully heart-filling, and it’ll teach Ben how to love/care for another being. Never a bad thing.

🙂

P.S. “Mama” is darling, single or not. LOL.

A little late to chime in, but I’ve dealt with the “she wants a doggy” issue with my daughter as well.

As cute as they are, I keep telling myself that it would be better if we got a dog when she is old enough to help out with it herself, such as giving it walks, filling its bowl, maybe vacuuming up the hair. Plus, she’ll remember the dog in its puppy time, which doesn’t last long. In a way, she’d have more ‘memory time’ with the dog if I got it when she’s 7 instead of 3.

I’ve also HAD a dog when she was 15 months old (the ex-husband didn’t think I had enough on my plate and got an un-housebroken puppy. I constantly had to watch the dog and my daughter, to make sure neither hurt each other.

Every time I took the dog outside to try and teach it to do its business there, my daughter would shriek because “I took her puppy away”.

Also, the puppy did not sleep through the night!! It was like those first few months with a newborn baby all over ago. It peed and pooped all over my house, I constantly felt on edge (not made better by lack of sleep due to puppy)…It was an absolute nightmare.

I begged her father to let us give the dog to someone who had the time, that my daughter came first and I felt she was being neglected while I cleaned up doggy diarrhea (it also happened to be sick) and taking the dog outside.

I cannot stress how terrible those 2 weeks were. Wait until Benjamin is older.

In the meantime, let Benjamin visit OTHER PEOPLE’S DOGS. I take my daughter to my mom’s a few times a week, and there she gets to see and cuddle her two little dogs WITHOUT THE HASSLE AND RESPONSIBILITY. Its great and it fulfills her “dog quotient” for a week.

Cats are quick and easy to housetrain and are super low-maintenance.

Another thought [to play Devil’s Advocate] is to litter box train a small dog (a dog that won’t get that much bigger, like a Pug). That would allow puppy to potty without having to be home to do so.
