7 Arguments Why Mothers Should Work– Even Just Part-Time

Earning money– whether is is through a part-time hobby, a full-time career, or on a freelance basis, is crucial for mothers.

It boosts self-esteem, gives a woman workplace viability if she decides to return to work full-time later on down the line, and it gives her financial independence.

Here is my latest article on why SAHM and working moms alike should make their own money.

8 Things A Man Does That Turn A Woman On

Here I am in the middle of a snowstorm, dead alone. It’s a damn shame. You all should know that winter exists so people can make babies or practice making babies. I won’t be doing either. The other day, a poor guy who rang me up at a convenience store gave me one of the lamest pick up lines ever. Before I could hand him my items to scan he says: “You look like such a happy person (I do). Do you know any good clubs out here? Anywhere to have fun?” Me: “Nope, I have no clue. Sorry.” Him: “But you look so happy. I really want to go out and have fun. I really want to go to a club.” Me: “I really don’t know where to go. I hope you have a good weekend. Good luck!” I think he may have had some learning issue. I don’t know. His awful approach though had me thinking that I know full well what turns me off about most men– and most women do too. But what turns us on by the opposite sex? I started to remember guys that always seemed to excite me– no matter what the situation. So I’ve compiled a list. Here goes: Continue reading

Before I Was A Parent: I Thought I Knew It All

Before I was a mom, there I was shaking my head while a mom toted a toddler to the store in the polar vortex cold, without shoes.

Before I was a mom, there I was tisk-tisking when parents brought their rambunctious preschoolers to “adult” restaurants.

I never said anything but silently, I judged…and now, as a mom, karma has bit me in the butt.

5 Things A Single Mom Needs To Thrive– Not Just Survive

Whether you’ve been a single mom from day one or became one due to divorce or other circumstances, it can be a challenge. Initially when my ex and I separated, my first thoughts were: how do I survive? How do I pay bills, where will I live when the house is gone, and what is going to happen to me were my first big pressing issues. And while those issues are still at hand at some point, I had to figure a way to move forward and not just “get by” each day but also, enjoy my life again.

And while I stated 5 very important things a single mom needs to thrive, I want to add that chocolate, battery-operated objects, and a good relationship with my ex has also helped me to move forward. My ex and I did not work out, but we make damn good parents.

Here’s 5 things a single mom needs to thrive. Please share!

5 Things Dads Might Lie About In Their Online Dating Profiles

Lying happens whether it’s a woman or a man on an online dating site. Sometimes the lies are little white lies designed to make a person look better. Other times, the lies may be hurtful, like a man or woman stating he/she is single if he/she really isn’t, or a man not sharing that he has a child. Despite this big or little white lies, online dating is still a viable way to meet someone as long as you put in the effort. I personally did not put in the effort, and so I deleted my profile.

Here are however, 5 things both innocent and not innocent, that a dad might lie about in his online profile.

No matter though, don’t give up hope yet. Your Prince is waiting for you!

Finding Gratitude During Hard Times: A Star In the Grey Sky of Divorce

Today, I was doing a google search looking for places that had shared my content when lo and behold, I found this article.

It’s a blog on how even amongst the hardship of divorce & the holidays, someone was able to find gratitude in the situation.

That “someone,” was me.

A lawyer had found an article I wrote and was impressed with my outlook, and how so far my ex-husband and I have handled our divorce situation and our child.

I was stunned, and happy to see that a bad situation in my life has been able to provide some light and comfort to others going through the process or at the very least, a new perspective.

I never thought making such a difficult choice (that took us almost 2 years+) to make would have a positive impact on others, as well as myself.

In the end, I want my daughter to be able to grow up and say, “My parents put their own problems aside and worked together for me. They made it easy for me.”

Because really, do the kids ask for their parents to be divorced? No, they never do. So if we as parents cannot reasonably work together to stay together, the least we can do is work together to parent together.

She deserves that.
