Single Moms with (a few) Answers

February 17, 2016

My single mom friend and blogger, Emma Johnson, is such an inspiration. I met her years ago at the 2012 BlogHer conference. At the time, she was just about to begin her own blog on being a single mother. Flash forward to today and she has tens of thousands of readers and is still a […]

In bed…

July 11, 2012

Sleep has always been a touchy subject for me. I never get enough of it and I am jealous of people who do. I envy well rested people like most women envy dewy, perfect skin or thin thighs. You can have your thighs and your skin, I just want sleep. I used to dread sleeping. […]

Romance vs. Love: What’s the difference?

November 23, 2011

I always pick books up, read a chapter or two, set them down for weeks and then pick them back up later to read a few more. If you recall a few posts back I recommended Gloria Steinem’s Revolution from Within. And as usual, I then didn’t finish it… but a few nights ago I […]

A Single Mom’s Guide to Finding a Manperson

I missed the third anniversary of starting my blog. Typically I give myself a pat on the back for making it this far without either a) quitting or b) losing all of my readers. And then I offer up a recap of my milestone self-discoveries about men and dating as a single mom. Conveniently for […]

8 Days

September 12, 2010

Eight days of semi-single momdom left. I know I’m not entirely a single mom anymore, having a man around and all. A deeply considerate and helpful man at that. But still, in eight days that door will be permanently shut, right now it’s swinging back and forth a bit and there’s a crack of light […]

One Year

April 28, 2010

One year ago today… When I got dressed that morning I thought about him. What should I wear? Something that doesn’t look like I’m trying and something that will still look cute at 5:45 when I leave work. It didn’t take long for me to decide on a pair of jeans, a t-shirt and a […]

Happily Ever After?

March 29, 2010

“Maybe you shouldn’t have kids,” I sigh into the phone. Typically I’m encouraging my little sister to just have a kid already, but my sister has caught me in a post Benjamin was being a pain in the ass moment and I don’t really feel like talking, or doing much of anything. In fact, I […]

Single and Childless

September 29, 2009

I had an amazing day yesterday… not because I am all in love and stuff (although that made it nice too) but because I got to see two of my best single and childless girlfriends. And now I’m wondering what or who I would be without them in my life. First, there’s Alison… (who is […]

Man Park or Dog Park?

September 10, 2009

I would never compare men to dogs. Never. Nope. It’s just not my style. I love my men. Before I found John Bear many of you called me a man-hater. But now I’m a walking talking dog and man loving machine. Yesterday, inspired by your adventure stories, we hopped in the car and went to […]

Trippin’, Part 2

August 13, 2009

When I meet a single and childless girl I feel an urge to sit her down and have a talk – like a grandmother would. No, honey, not that one. I don’t care how cute he is or how much money he makes. No, that doesn’t matter. He may be whispering in your ear and […]
