    Mother's Day 2010Hello World!I guess it hasn't been THAT long, but Charlie has learned many, many new things so I thought I better update before I get behind. The BIGGEST news is that on Mother's Day, Charlie walked up to me, said "Potty, mama" and...

    on Apr 12, 2010 in dating single parenting books
    My aunt sent me the book "Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough" and I'm a few chapters in. The book has created a firestorm of controvery and Ms. Gottlieb has been on several talk shows defending her position. The truth may set you f...

    Last night Charlie couldn’t sleep. She’s hyped up on meds. She was bouncing in her crib like a baboon, with her whole body trampolining into the air, butt almost as high as her shoulders, nearly bouncing out of the crib. When I walked into her...

    "It's better than the alternative" is what everyone is telling me and that may be true but I'm not psyched about it.That is all.
  • Mama Vs. Mommy
    on Apr 5, 2010 in single parenting
    I'm teaching Charlie to call me "Mama".I like it better than "Mommy" for some reason, it sounds warmer to me.It's more caveman.More Elvis.Sometimes I slip, because "Mommy" is what I grew up on, and it's hard to change these types of things mid-stream...
