The Ultimate Single Mom Contest

by mssinglemama on October 25, 2008

You all rock. Single moms rock. Blogging rocks.

So let’s have a little contest, shall we?

UPDATE: This contest is now closed… thanks everyone for your comments!!! I’ll be announcing the winner on Monday, November 3 with a video of Benjamin picking the winner’s name. FUN! Thanks again… if you would still like to leave a comment about being a single mom, by all means – comment away.

Maybe we’ll piss off even more haters… or maybe I will. Not quite sure but I could care less. My main mission with this blog is to give each and every one of you – my single mom readers – an extra ounce of confidence, maybe an extra ounce of pride and hopefully the ability to rise up to the occasion and feel empowered by your single motherhood.

I know it sucks.

I know it’s not easy.

But we can make the best of it, right?

If we can’t – than our children suffer. So, in my eyes, making the best of it is necessary to surviving this madness. Easier said than done, I know. It took me over one year to snap out of my new single mom funk and wake up to the realization that I could do this – not only do it, but do it well. That year felt like an eternity.

The contest:

Tell me one bright side to being a single mother.

Just one. Even if you hate being a single mom – tell me one thing that makes you happy. That’s it. Just one – could be anything, from dating, the house, the kids or work.

The prize:

I couldn’t help but notice (thanks to my site stats) that quite a few of you are interested in the iHeartSingleParents tank tops and t-shirts. So the winner gets to pick out their favorite and I’ll have it shipped to you. The one you see here is Benjamin’s favorite. If you haven’t joined iHeartSingleParents – the first and greatest single parents social network – get over there.

The tank tops run small but there are larger sized t-shirts as well. Surf them all here.

I’m picking the winner randomly - so again, even one little squeak of a comment will qualify you – but feel free to leave a long-winded one as well or even enter a blog post on the topic.

Deadline: Thursday, October 30 at 9:00 p.m. (ET)
