Despite only seeing single mothers portrayed on TV and in movies as frumpy, over-worked women only a deeply kind, "good" person could find hot and appealing, I was totally surprised (and thrilled) when I realized that just because I was a single mom didn't make me any less desirable.
In fact, it made me more appealing to the right kinds of partners.
A few weeks ago, I overheard my 7-year-old telling his friend a story about his “mommy’s friend.” My 8-year-old tends to do the same when referring to my boyfriend, whom, for the record, they like very much.
She does and says things without recognizing that to some extent our whole family is dating this guy.Read at your own risk.[This is this blog's most popular post.I think it holds up well and is highly relevant in today's world.]Not of all of these reasons apply to everyone.Still, it made me wonder: Is a part of them embarrassed that their dad and I are divorced?Are they trying to fit in with their friends from non-divorced families?
