I'm sorry I didn't tell you we were going to try for another baby. I get that this hurt you, but to be honest I don't think I knew how to tell you. Our lives are so different, I wasn't sure how you'd take it or that you'd be happy for me.… Continue

It's about that time. The Sexy Single Mommy is expanding. Although I have only been at this since May, I have decided to do some things differently, so I am looking for contributors.
Many of you have some great blogs and have a niche for different subjects. Even if you are not a "blogger," I am still interested in what you can contribute. The subjects that I am looking for are: Dating & Relationships, Parenting, Health & Beauty (which includes fashion), Kids… Continue

I don't know about y'all, but I speak NAG fluently. I have a tendency to run my mouth just a little too much sometimes, but it's only because I care. Like I used to tell my husband: "I talk now because I give a damn, when I'm quiet it means I don't give a f*ck!" Honestly, that's true for me, but I guess it is true what they say, some things are better left unsaid.

Dreamy eyes Michael Ealy graced the cover of Upscale magazine's July 2012 issue. OKAY ladies, you can stop staring at the magazine cover and drooling to scroll down and read what the man had to say... J/K!!!
Anywho! Unlike most men, Michael Ealy has finally admitted that he was addicted to the crazy in his past relationships and that he had a save-a chick complex which was the cause… Continue

A few weeks ago I coached a successful business woman who was struggling to understand why her staff didn't trust or confide in her. One of the key pieces of feedback she received was that she was too impersonal. Her staff complained (anonymously) that they felt like they didn't really know her and that she didn't take time to understand their personal lives outside of…

The E! Channel just started re-running Sex and the City, one of my all-time favorite television series. When SATC came out, I was living in New York and working as an account executive at a big PR agency. The story of four working women pursuing successful careers, romance… Continue

Looking back at my life, I see how important my girlfriends are and were in my life. From keeping me out of trouble; being the voice of reason; having my back; providing free therapy sessions; making me laugh through my tears; and just plain listening when it seems no one else could -- my girlfriends have all made lasting and important contributions to strengthening and supporting me in times of need. … Continue

The whole thing with Ed got me thinking of the guys who never knew how I felt about them. Would I ever come clean with them? I'm not sure how many crushes
I've had but these are the ones that come to mind:…

I came across some of my old journals.
It was so weird looking through them. (I know I have tons more
I was a really great chick! I was so confident and smart. I wrote about wanting Gman in my life. I also wrote about Ed, a male friend I had at the time.…

Whenever we're heading out somewhere, Hubby will always inevitably become perturbed that we're not running on time. He stands at the front door, saying, "It's 6pm. We're supposed to be there by now!" And that would be fine, if it wasn't always up… Continue

Before we get too far from Mothers Day, can I just say ... "I am not my husband's mother!" And you aren't yours either.

I am pleading with the SUN. Please come back. Bring me warmth, energy, and enthusiasm. Take away the cold, blistering wind. Destroy my sweaters, wool socks, and mittens. Bring me sundresses, flip flops, and sunscreen. Keep me warm, tan, and freckled…..a pool by my feet, a cocktail within reach. All of this, in Mother Nature’s name I pray, AMEN.
It’s winter in good old Pennsylvania, and I absolutely hate it. How do I cope? Not well. Chocolate Fudge Torte, Apple Cake, Fudge… Continue

If you can’t trust my word, what CAN you trust? Isn’t that what they say? Apparently my word means nothing. What’s wrong with me? Didn’t I promise I’d be back on track?
No more late posts, no more procrastination. Once again, a day late and a dollar short. Actually, let’s be honest. A day late would be understandable, but FIVE WEEKS?
I have no excuses.
I took, as I like to lovingly call it, a Christmas vacation. I’ve just decided to return to real life. By now I should know.… Continue

Marriage counseling stinks.
It really does. I skipped our session last week, and I’ve been avoiding admitting the truth and writing this post ever since. But that’s my m.o., that’s what I do. I go in cycles, up, down, and all around. When I start to slide, it’s a very slippery slope.
Nobody told me that if I really wanted to work on my marriage, I’d also have to work on myself. I know how stupid that sounds. I mean, REALLY work on myself.
It’s almost like remodeling a… Continue

Ask your partner why they love you. See what happens. I did, and then I tried not to panic when my husband paused and told me the question made his brain hurt.
Well actually, that requires the presence of a brain, and since he still hadn’t answered yet, I seriously doubt his is in working order. Men can be so DENSE
Oh, by the way, our rubberbands from last week’s session, lasted approximately 20 hours. Not even a full day. They were, quite possibly, the worst idea I’ve… Continue

So we’ve already determined that we stink. We’ve forgotten how to dream. We’ve lost our individual identities and we’re simply co-existing. Sounds pretty depressing, doesn’t it?
Well Ladies, I must say, since our first marriage counseling session was posted last week, my life has been an absolute whirlwind.
We may, in fact, stink. But a funny thing happened. When you start communicating, no matter how “big” or “small” the conversation, things start to change.
Dynamics are… Continue
