An unfiltered fire hose of flaming condemnation
  • How to survive single motherdom: Have at least one friend you can count on to call anytime about anything. And learn how to find the humor in all things.

    Carol? come out of hiding…
    (or was this the girls’ weekend in NY? I’m feeling too lazy to find the comment)

    *LadyBug* I got a big kick out of your comment (to me) yesterday that suggested I go to see the doctor. I smiled over it for quite a while.
    I think my husband thinks I’m going batty… hehehe

    So _many_ of you say witty, funny stuff that really keeps me laughing. *thanks*

    How beautiful. Amazing…just amazing.

    And the single motherhood thing? I been doing it for 10 days now while hubby is out of town. Thank goodness he’ll be home this afternoon. I’m losing my mind.

  • I’ve been doing the single mother thing from the beginning, almost 9 years ago.
    You know how I did it? I lived with my parents, that’s how!! There is the benefit of having the kid go off to the dad’s every other weekend, too…that is a pretty sweet benefit, as much as I love my kid. 😉
    Can’t wait to read the next newsletter…they are so beautiful. Glad Jon survived his weekend with the guys and is back home with you, Leta, and Chuck

  • P.S.—my daughter and I lived with my parents until she was 6, then we moved to an apartment nearby, now we have our very own house. Life is good.

    Doesn’t lucky number 107 win the toaster oven?

    that was for you, Aaron. 🙂

    As a single dad (every other week, the rest of the time I’m just single. and lonely. sob.) there is no answer to how do you do it. You just do. It’s not as if you have a lot of choices. You take care of your kid(s) and they take care of you.

    As a Minnesoooohtan who hasn’t seen real mountains in ten years, thanks for the beautiful picture.

    Danielle – Geez, thanks for asking. It was the girls’ weekend in NYC, but I’m also in hiding.

    Oh wait. Shit.

Hi. I’m Heather B. Armstrong, and this used to be called mommy blogging. But then they started calling it Influencer Marketing: hashtag ad, hashtag sponsored, hashtag you know you want me to slap your product on my kid and exploit her for millions and millions of dollars. That’s how this shit works. Now? Well… sit back, buckle up, and enjoy the ride.
