‘Tis the Season

December 7, 2010

My favorite pictures of the season so far, and we haven’t even really started. I have to stop reading the newspapers because everything “out there” seems so incredibly dismal and depressing. When everything “in here” is quite the opposite. I feel so tremendously fortunate. To pay the universe forward, I’m sending the last 16 new [...]

Dad

December 2, 2010

Shortly after we moved in together, into our new house and onto our new life, Benjamin started asking a lot of questions. Namely, “Does this mean John Bear is my Dad now?” “Well, yes, he is your step-dad.” As I’ve told you before, Benjamin was very quick to point out that technically John and I [...]

Trips and Titles

October 24, 2010

I spent the last half of the week in Chicago on a business trip. John Bear was there as well for a conference. We found an hour for dinner and site seeing. The bean is a lot cooler than it seems in pictures. But not nearly as cool as my aunt Terri and uncle Larry. [...]

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. Not the basketball hoop. Not even his new bunk bed. No, the most fascinating thing is the fact that a man [...]

The Wedding Dress

September 15, 2010

My Mom and I stopped into a bridal boutique a few days after John and I’s engagement. We were right there. So, why not? I’m not by any means a wedding planning bridezilla. Quite the opposite I’m afraid. The very thought of planning another wedding, even though my first happened so quickly, makes me a [...]

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 [...]

Ms. Published Mama? Pinch me, now.

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 [...]

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 [...]

Single Moms Wanted for National TV

August 30, 2010

I’ve checked both of these out – both are legit and one is for a huge daytime talk show. And, it’s not one of the nasty daytime shows, it’s one of the completely fantastic shows. Otherwise I wouldn’t be sharing. So here you go… Single Moms Wanted #1 Are you a recently or soon-to-be divorced [...]

Single Mom Manifesto

August 16, 2010

While basking in a few days off last week my mind went to wandering. Eventually I had a moment to sit and think about all of you and this blog, where it’s going and where it’s been; what it means to you and to me. I’ve been effectively avoiding the subject with myself, the subject [...]
