"The talk"

 So I had THE question asked of me by my 6 year old daughter. You know the one, the one that turned me into a awkward and uncomfortable teenager. "Mommy, how does the baby get in a Mommy's belly?"

Parenting Styles: A straight path through the maze

Among the perks of having babies in the 1980′s, 1990′s and 2000′s is that your kids’ friends’ parents– your friends– span many decades as well. Mom-friends who were rearing their last-born when I was fearfully raising my first grew up during FDR’s administration; some friends I’ve met through my 8-year-old entered the world while Reagan served. Consequently, I’ve been exposed to quite a number of parenting styles.

5 Ways Be a Better Parent If You Are Suffering with Chronic Pain

Mom Explaining to Chronic Pain to Her Children Last fall we decided to take my youngest son out of daycare so that he could stay at home with me during the day.  At first I was nervous because I wasn’t sure how I was going to care for him during the day.  I am thankful that he has started learning how to play independently and can entertain himself for a few minutes.  During those first several weeks, I was so excited and wanted to continue teaching him the things that he was currently learning in daycare.  Things changed…

Online Dating: Lessons Learned

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

After I started getting myself together after my divorce, it came the time when I was ready to start dating again. It had been almost a decade since I was out there so I was obviously clueless.

He's Just Not That Into Me

View post on SingleMomStyle.com

I had been seeing this guy for the past few months. Let’s call him “McDreamy.” Just so you know, this man is the package. He is smart, successful, motivated, honest, romantic, health-conscious, and fiercely hot. I thought that we instantly clicked, and we were on the same page on a lot of things about love and relationships. When I told him “I believe a family…

Mother knows best

I wanted to call this post I know best, but thought it might be a bit too presumptuous. So, I disguised myself as a Mother. Which I am. Since getting this honorary title, I have discovered it comes with so many responsibilities. The famous line of from J.F.K. comes to mind, somewhat altered though: "ask not what…

Embracing Your Personal Style

I feel like agents at my office are often times on similar wavelengths.  This last week I had some similar conversations with a few different agents.  What made the experience unusual was that the subjects were brought up to me in the course of the conversation by the other person.  You know that feeling where you say, "that's so funny, I just had that same conversation with so and so."  Yeah, that was me last week.
