Mia’s Story, Part II

January 29, 2009

I like to call Benjamin my hero. Becuase he is. This little guy is my guy and my reason for doing all that I do, day in and day out. I wouldn’t have it any other way because at the end of every little storm he’s there waiting with a big sloppy kiss. But lately […]

Little shop of horrors.

January 25, 2009

A girl has to get her hair cut.  Especially when she’s leaving on a fun weekend escapade in six days (more on that later). Unable to find a sitter, I decided earlier this week (thanks to my Twitter peeps) to just take Benjamin to the salon with me. The place, right down the street from […]

This cold snap isn’t going anywhere. Which means I have to spend another weekend inside with little Benjamin.  I’m running on fumes, […]

Old Man Winter

January 21, 2009

But it’s not what you think. I’m taking a self-imposed man break (in case you hadn’t noticed) and Benjamin has subsequently ended up in my bed. It’s a long story, I imagine, we have an entirely different take on the issue.  And I’m not sure how long it will be before I start dating again […]

Bye, Bye Daddy?

January 17, 2009

I have been a dating single mom for over two years now. And the first thing I can tell you is this – it’s not easy. First you have to get past your divorce, the heartbreak, the anger and the tears. And then, once you are finally ready to get back out there, you have […]

Holy crap, People.

January 16, 2009

I tried to ignore her. Not wanting to fan the flames or give this story any more attention. I also didn’t want any of you to hear her words. So I brushed Ann Coulter under the rug. But after dozens of e-mails from all of you and even my little brother I decided to respond […]

Dear Ms. Coulter:

January 15, 2009

Ann Coulter lashes out at single moms in her new book, “Guilty”. One of the chapters is actually titled “Victim of a Crime? Blame a Single Mom.” Needless to say this single mom had something to say about her claims.
