Lost amidst the never ending paint

September 24, 2010

I have been painting since  Sunday afternoon. A few things I’ve learned, 1248 square feet seems much larger when you have to cover every inch and painting a ceiling is worse than painting a closet. If you were hoping for some insightful live or love lesson you’ll have to move along, my brain is fried [...]

The Almost Step-Father

September 19, 2010

Benjamin is in the bath splashing entirely too much and talking the entire time. Tonight’s topic is our impending move. And the the most fascinating thing about the new house? Not his new room.

The Wedding Dress

September 6, 2010

Something has happened again. Something I was not expecting in the least. You all know about our soon to be brilliant and dare I say, ground breaking, Single Mom’s Manifesto. I’m working on my first entry, assembling the mailing list and also am trying to figure out a way to make sure my return address [...]

Baby Bears?

September 4, 2010

Last weekend one of my single mom friends dropped her sweetest, little baby off for a few hours so she could get some well-earned girl’s time. John Bear came over to help. And while he’s mastered the ages of three and four, clearly two months is not yet in his repertoire. We’ll be borrowing Baby [...]

Searching for a crystal ball

September 1, 2010

I know I have some readers who are children of single moms. You’ve said you’re here because I fill in holes, blanks from your childhood or at least, give you an idea of what your mother went through. A question for you–what if this was your mother’s blog? Would it be too much? Are  there [...]
