Mom On The Run: Training For My First 10k

I'm never one to back down from a challenge. Crazy or not, I will NOT be outdone. I'm convinced it's due to my only child status, but I digress. So when an acquaintenance casually mentioned that they were doing a 10k, I indirectly took it as a challenge, and a little too quickly said 'I'm going to do it too'. Seriously, what was I thinking?!?So the date is set: October 13, 2012, I am doing the New York Rock & Roll…See More

Driving While Mommying

So I had a VERY scary moment the other day. While driving to take my daughter to daycare (a 35 minute drive from home), my daughter went into her usual morning routine:Baby drops cupMommy (myself) reaches back to find cupBaby cries for toyMommy reaches to find one of the 1000 toys that are in the backseatBaby throws the toy that Mommy gave her because it's the BROWN horse and not the BLACK one  While going through this routine, there were moments thrown in there of crying, yelling for Mommy,…See More

When 'It's Official' Really Set In

So it's really, really official. I became a 'Single Mommy' right before Thanksgiving. It really hurt. 8.5 years, 1 child, and now it's done. The biggest challenge that I've faced is how to co-parent without impacting my daughter's schedule or happiness. I am thankful that she's young and resillient.
