Have you ever thought about becoming a Work At Home Mom (WAHM)? I thought about it long and hard the day I sat down and calculated how many students I had suspended, and how many had been arrested in just one week. When my daughter was born I took one look at her and knew that I had to figure something out fast.
Now back to my question. Have you ever dreamt of a job…Continue

Starting when Hana was a toddler, I’ve raised her to be very polite and respectful. Hana always uses please and thank you, excuses herself from the table, and asks before taking. Her teachers constantly rave about how obedient and helpful she is in school. I beam when people tell me how well behaved she is and how amazing her manners are. There had been no…Continue

About a week ago, I wrote about a guy I quickly fell for and had every intention of posting it. Unfortunately, things changed just as quickly. First of all, I cannot stress enough how instantly we clicked and how completely enamored we were with each other. Anyway, he got some news that he had to leave for a while because he’s in the military. As bad of a…Continue

Even though I’m a mother myself, I’ve always knows Mother’s Day to be focused around my mother and typically include the four F’s of Mother’s Day: faith, family, food and flowers. This Mother’s Day, however, will be a little different. My mom is on vacation and living up her retirement, rightfully so, but she won’t be around for actual Mother’s Day. My brother and I…Continue

Exercising regularly was definitely high up on my list of goals when I got divorced. It was yet another way to get myself out of rock bottom. Before Hana was born, I went to the gym 4 or 5 days a…Continue

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. Luckily, I had great friends to support me. A girlfriend of mine convinced me to try online dating and gave me a few pointers before I jumped in. She warned me that…Continue

It doesn't feel like it’s been almost 4 years since I was divorced, but I do feel like I've come a long way. Working on remodeling my interior during my transition was outrageously more difficult than Eva 2.0—The Exterior.…Continue

When I first started blogging, I did a search for do’s and don’ts. It was advised not to take any religious or political stands. However, I’m not a single parent expert or anything—I just blog about my life as a single parent. And I feel that some topics certainly affect me as a parent so sorry blogging advisers. I also want to make clear that I respect all…Continue

My daughter, Hana, often comes up with ideas to enlarge our little family, though I always teach her that Every Family is Different. The most common idea is for Mommy and Daddy to get back together. If you’ve kept up…Continue

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…Continue

Last Sunday, I went to church alone for the first time in a long time. I usually like to go with Hana, but she was at her dad's. Since it was just me, I sat myself in the back of the church. During mass, a baby was being baptized, and I was a mere 10 feet away from witnessing this special moment. First, it got me thinking about when Hana was baptized. Then I…Continue

My girls are almost three. I cannot quite pinpoint when, but sometime in the last few weeks, a mean elephant has taken up residence in our home. He is generally anywhere that is not attached to me. I have yet to see him but I hear about him quite often. He lurks in the hallways, the room I ask them to go to without me, the stairwell if I am not holding their hand or carrying them. In short,…Continue

As part of the final exercise for my coaching certification, we had to give feedback to each of our fellow students on which behavior/s each of us exhibited that really stood out during our eight months together. I thought it was a great way to see how people viewed me and was excited to hear the comments…after all this has been a very introspective process.
The one remark that I haven’t…Continue

Maternal instinct: a mother's innate instinct to protect and care for her offspring. Why is there no term "Paternal Instinct"? Does the concept exist? Is it learned and not innate?
I have a friend who is in his early fifties. He desperately wants a child. He is looking into all the different ways to have (get?) one. I think it is cool. I wonder why I don’t think it is especially "cool" when a…
