Single mom for sale!

June 30, 2008

Yes, there are downsides to being a single mom. We have to cook every meal, change every diaper, deal with every tantrum and clean every room – every day, 365 days a year. But I absolutely love being a single mom. Why? Because I’m happy. I don’t really know how to explain it but I’ll […]

Obama Calls Out Dead Beat Dads

June 16, 2008

During a powerful Father’s Day speech Barack Obama called out dead beat dads and heralded us single moms for all of our hard work. I love this man, I truly do. Raised by a single mother, I expect Obama will be very passionate on single parent issues if elected. On Friday he announced he would […]

Sex and the Cheesy City

June 1, 2008

My Sex and the City Movie Review: Cheese, cheese and more cheese – with a few hints of the Sex and the City we knew and loved. With the exception of a few memorable scenes, the Sex and the City Movie was a bit of a let down. I didn’t hate it, but I definitely […]

Holy Amazon men, Batman!

May 31, 2008

Thomas, aka “the Dane”, started reading this blog long before his visit. And this morning, I found this in my inbox – a guest blog entry from Thomas on his experience with Benjamin and I. For the men, this is the perfect addition to my series on How to Date a Single Mom. And for […]

Kathie Lee (a.k.a The Idiot) meets Dooce.

May 8, 2008

If you didn’t see Dooce’s interview on the Today Show, watch it here.

You’ll hear Kathie Lee Gifford admit she doesn’t even use computers and then proceed to tell Heather B. Armstrong, “I have mixed emotions about it (her blog), I have to be honest with you – you seem like a lovely lady – but there’s something that worries me about it…the safety issue of putting your kids online.”

Heather then tries to throw it back on her…”well, you live in New York City and you walk down the street…”

Then they cut Heather off and ended the story.

And by the way, here’s Kathie Lee Gifford’s “blog” – which we can now safely assume is a total fake. Too bad the producers didn’t prep her before the show – “Kathie Lee, don’t forget – you have your own blog.” Oops.

Dear Senator Obama: Please stop spamming me.

May 5, 2008

I am a long time supporter of yours. Months ago, I hopped onto and joined your fantastic online community. Nice work on that social network by the way. Very nice. I have found lots of cute men in my area who are also card carrying liberals…and I feel like I am truly part of a movement with like-minded individuals.

However, I think you need to read this. Because I can’t help but notice, that as of late my e-mails from either you, Michelle or your campaign manager are increasing in frequency – as many as three a day! I hate to admit this, but like other brands (and, yes, you are a brand), I get a bad taste in my mouth for anyone who spams the hell out of myinbox.

Please, please, for the love of the Democratic party and all things holy – please stop breaking the e-mail laws of etiquette! It’s just bad form.

I still love you and will still be voting for you in November.

The Dawn of Mommy Blogs

May 4, 2008

Mankind’s media landscape has been controlled by men since the first printing press spit out a bible. Oh, and if you haven’t heard – you’re a rib.

Now it’s our turn

We are lifting the black curtains, inviting other families into our lives and are finding, above all, that we’re not alone. Stereotypes, perhaps you had one about single moms when you found my website, are vanishing, walls are coming down and we’re finally speaking to each other about our fears, our joys, our loses and our victories – or about what our kid wiped on the wall last night. Mom blogs are strong voice for women every where.
