Love from a reader and another single mom.

At the start

April 13, 2010

I have been so wrapped up in my own happiness lately – with my work, with John, with Benjamin (and not necessarily in that order, fluctuates with the day or more often, the time of day) – that I have lost sight of why I started this blog in the first place. A few weeks […]

Secrets, Secrets

July 16, 2009

The secret is out. And inside of this secret are all of my secrets. Ms. Single Mama Uncensored is an eBook dishing all of the juicy stories behind the stories on my blog. And believe me, I’ve left a lot out. Like what really happened with Mr. Man, the reason my fling with Cabin Man […]

Saved by the men.

March 7, 2009

My first memory is of toddling behind my mother along a dark hiking trail somewhere out West.  I must have been about Benjamin’s age.  We had split up. My father and some of my other siblings stayed on top of the trail while my mom and the rest of us went in. And now we […]

Being Social

December 18, 2008

Sometimes everything catches up with me. Dating Mr. Man took the wind out of me on a number of levels, namely on my schedule. I barely have enough extra time in the day as it is. On top of my full-time job I write this blog and a few others. It’s my choice. And I […]
