Ok, that's the epitome of cute.

And I second PT Lawmom's comment. Ha!

Whew! I did this exact same thing last week with Rascal. And it was PMS plus other scars... He told me honestly how it made him feel and I had to apologize. It was pure fear talking.

All I can say is what has been said so far: Own it.

The only way to get rid of your fear is to look at it. Shine that light on it Alaina! It isn't going to be pretty but once you see it for what it is, then you'll be able to let it go.

And now, as you can plainly see, you are not alone. We all do this. You're resisting because you're scared. You'll get used to it, you'll relax and it will get much easier.

Yes, indeed, it does take a strong man but mostly, it takes a STRONG LOVE.

I like this post mostly for this line:

"I think that as we change as individuals our friendships stand to change."

I have a girlfriend that I've known for almost 20 years. I got married before she did and that changed things. Then she had children before I did and that changed things. Then we were pregnant at the same time and that changed things. Now I'm single and she's still married and that has changed things too. Through it we have remained friends but our friendship has evolved in many different ways.

I do know many married women who treat me differently now that I'm single. We're still friends but it is true that we don't hang out as we used to. Some people simply would rather me go out with them when I'm dating someone. I suppose they think I will feel like a third wheel when in fact, I'm pretty comfortable being alone.

Yes, I agree. You will begin to attract more happily married/dating couples because that is where you are now. Enjoy it!

Wow. This is something I've never thought about. Its funny because single parents sometimes get kind of snarky about who can carry the "single parent" moniker. I guess everyone wants to appear to suffer more than others...

As I approach 40 this December and I see my 7 and 4 year old finally begin to do things for themselves (my 4 year old can reach the light switches in the house now!!!), I am most definitely done.

I don't mind if whomever I end up with has kids. Great! I like Carolyn's response... it is nice when you can have kids AND have alone time together. Sign me up!

That was beautiful. My grandma died last night and I have high hopes she's dancing with my dad now. They didn't love each other on this earth but perhaps past these heavy bodies, their spirits recognized each other...

Thank you for reminding me that I need to love my kids right now. Because this... this life is not permanent. And we should all remember to make someone smile.

I do love how your face lights up when you say his name.

What a cool idea! You're the snazzy high-tech single mama now! (With a little help from Prince Charming.)

I like it!
