Mia’s Story, Part II

January 29, 2009

I’m making all of the last minute preparations for my weekend trip! Mia is watching Benjamin (wish her luck). I know they’ll have a ball though. Benjamin absolutely adores Mia and Sydney. And who wouldn’t? As you’ll read in a second, Mia is fast discovering that fact. I’ll have an update when I get back… [...]

My Hero

January 28, 2009

I like to call Benjamin my hero. Because 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 [...]

January 23, 2009

Twitter is sexy? Um. Yeah. It is. Here’s a news flash, people don’t just like Twitter because of the information we can share and the friendships we can form – the place is also a gigantic flirtatious chat room. Think about it. We all flirt every day in the flesh – why not on Twitter? If [...]

Old Man Winter

January 21, 2009

Please, please go away.  We’ve been in some kind of a deep freeze for weeks now and I made the big mistake of checking the weather forecast today — and it’s not good. This cold snap isn’t going anywhere. Which means I have to spend another weekend inside with little Benjamin.  I’m running on fumes, [...]

There’s a man in my bed.

January 19, 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, read about it here – please – I really need advice on the co-sleeping thing. As single parents, I imagine, we have an entirely different take on the issue.  [...]

Bye, Bye Daddy?

January 17, 2009

“I talked to someone who works with your ex’s girlfriend,” my friend said. “Really? And?” “She is acting all excited saying he bought a new car and they are all moving to Canada – together.” My face lit up and then crumbled all at once. Certainly, it must have. I can’t hide anything. It’s annoying. [...]

Holy crap, People.

January 16, 2009

There’s nothing more surreal than seeing your friend in People Magazine. Okay, I’m sure being in People would be even more surreal. But still opening it up this morning and seeing Matt, Liz and Madeline was quite an experience. All of this is overwhelming Matt (but in a good way). Matt and I will be [...]

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.
