My New Year’s Wish

December 30, 2008

It doesn’t feel like New Year’s Eve. Something is off and I’m not quite sure what. Maybe it’s the remnants of the flu or this nasty winter weather but my energy level has been much lower than normal. Perhaps I’m burnt out? It’s a very real possibility. I work like a mad woman. If I’m [...]

What makes him so irresistible?

December 29, 2008

Just floating thoughts in my head of what makes a man sexy (to a single mom, and therefore eventually to all women because most of us will be mothers). This man, by the way, is a figment of my imagination. And while I have dated different men who possessed at least one or more of [...]

Sweet Nothings

December 29, 2008

Mr. Man is still sending them to me, in letters and in voicemails. He misses me and wants to do whatever he can to get back into our lives. I do miss him but I just can’t. Besides he’s far, far away now – off on that rocket ship – so we have some time [...]

Eyelashes

December 27, 2008

All of Benjamin’s life people have commented on his eyelashes. “They’re from his father,” I say. They are amazing. Like little butterfly wings. He also has his father’s body – his shoulders, his legs, his torso and even his little butt. But he has my smile, my eyes and my eyebrows. Like any mother, I [...]

Merry Christmas!

December 24, 2008

‘Twas the night before Christmas in the Single Mom’s House. Benjamin opened his first present this morning, a gigantic Mickey Mouse doll. I found it at the thrift store so I figured – why not? After jumping up and down like a maniac he told me to turn it on. Upon discovering that Mickey did [...]

A Letter To the “Other Woman”:

December 23, 2008

Because it just has to be said. Last week I broke the news that my best friend Mia’s boyfriend and the father of her child is moving out. Catch up here if you missed it. Your responses were overwhelming and she read every one of them. Your thoughts, encouragement and advice meant the world to [...]

A note from the war zone:

December 22, 2008

Benjamin has a severe flu – puking, puking and puking. We had to go to the grocery store today. Had to… there were things we needed like saltines, popsicles and sorbert ice cream. He nearly puked in the cart. I made this video after we got home and he passed out. (Thought you all would [...]

How to Date a Single Mom, Part 6

December 21, 2008

The other night on Twitter (my new addiction) I stumbled across an interesting Tweet from a guy named Seth. Then I clicked through to his blog and felt like I’d slipped into the world of my male alter-ego. If I were a dude and childless, I think I’d be him. I immediately asked him for [...]

Being Social

December 18, 2008

I have to get back out there. It’s been months now since I’ve gone out solo. Nights on the town used to be my forte back in the childless days. I’d come home from work, spend the evening taking a beauty nap and then pop up at 9:00 p.m. ready to hit the city lights, [...]
