The wow factor.

April 26, 2009

My Ford Fiesta. I am absolutely divinely head over heels in love with my new ride.  I just got home last night but Benjamin and I were out and about all day cruising.  Now I’m wiped out.  I have a lot of video to edit, some posts to write and a secret self-induced single mama […]

My imaginary husband

April 6, 2009

It’s been so long since I’ve had a husband, or even a steady boyfriend for that matter, that I now can only imagine what it would be like. There’s nothing tangible left, not even an old pair of boxer shorts. Just pictures like this one. At first, when Benjamin was just four-months-old, the memories of […]

Houston…

January 8, 2009

We have a problem. Or do we? Benjamin found my bra this morning and refused to take it off. In fact, I was late to work because of the mini tantrum that ensued when I told him he couldn’t wear it to school. The bra fascination will be a nice addition to his obsession for […]

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, […]

Ex-mas Etiquette

December 17, 2008

A holiday question about our ex-men. Do you buy them presents from the kids? I will not be buying my ex-husband, Benjamin’s father, a Christmas present from myself. I think that’s a given. But what about a gift from Benjamin to his dad? Just shy of three, Benjamin still doesn’t really get the concept of […]

Mr. [Blank] – Your turn…

October 30, 2008

Who was your ex-husband? Complete this sentence with a comment: My ex-husband was Mr. [blank]. Be nice and funny if you can. If not, vent all you want. I’m not going to do it because I’d have to delete this blog.

The Dirty Laundry.

October 23, 2008

Every Wednesday night I take stock of the damage. Kitchen. Trashed. Living room. Even worse. I don’t even walk up to Benjamin’s room, I always save this for later so as not to send my body and mind into complete convulsions. But it’s just as bad. I’m not completely innocent here – much of the […]
