I'm a single mom of 2 boys. Just like every mom out there, I do everything I can to provide an awesome life for my boys. Somewhere along the line, I've managed to lose the "real" me. I have no idea what happened, but I'm on a mission of self re-discovery. I know I am someone other than "mom". I'm a woman in there some where too. And I'm going to find her!
I have been blogging since...

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.

Looking for single moms to profile at One lucky mom will win a $100 gift certificate from SpaFinder


I have one 4-year-old daughter. She is full of life, happiness and extremely smart. She speaks almost as well as I do at this point! Her vocabulary is out of this world and she has a great sense of humor. She loves Tinkerbell, Peter Pan, Dora the explorer, soccer, dancing and can't ever get enough of playing with her cousins and friends.

Hi Bonnie,

You will learn so much on your journey back to yourself. I've been on it for about 5 years now and even through the ups and downs I would not trade it for the world. I wish you all the best. Stop by my blog sometimes for some inspiration.

Hi Bonnie. Wow, your story sounds a lot like mine. I can completely relate. I think as single parents we give so much to our children that we forget to save a little bit for ourselves. I too tried to read your blog and will be looking forward to doing so once you have started to post.

Hi there, tried to read your blog, but it wan't showing much on it. Did you just start? Not sure what I was doing wrong. Anyway, I am a single mom too. I have 3 blogs, one is a single mom blog. Hope you will stop over and check it out. God bless, Robin

Ladies...I'm thrilled that there are other moms out there who feel a bit overwhelmed and "lost". Being a single mother, I rarely have time to sit on the phone a gab with my friends who have husbands that help with the household and kids. While they are wonderful women, and I'm very lucky to have them in my life, not one of them have come out and said that they get confused about the "real" woman that's hidden in them somewhere. It's refreshing to know that its not a weakness to struggle on a personal level. In fact, its very real part of life. And unless you have everything going the right way (and let's face it...who does these days?), chances are, you'll wake up at least once only to look in the mirror and not truly know the person looking back. I've decided that the road to re-discovering the real me is going to be something I do only for me. It has nothing to do with my career, or my kids. Its just for me. It's been a very long time since I've been able to say that. Thanks for all the support, and I have a feeling you guys will help me more that you know. Happy Monday to all!
