Leaning Into Life as a Single Parent

Jan 29, 2016 by

I have so many feelings about being a single parent. It’s hard, deeply overwhelming at times, scary yet also extremely rewarding. I’ll admit that during the past year of adjusting to life after divorce, the hard stuff has felt, well, really damn hard.

One of the things I struggle with the most is the realization that I am totally on my own. There’s no one to tap if I don’t feel like doing the bath time routine. There’s no one to tap during a tantrum. There’s no one to tap during the morning let’s-get-out-the-door rush.

Need a Valentine? We’ve Got You Covered

Jan 21, 2016 by

Untitled

Some of us (cough, cough) will be alone on Valentine’s Day this year. Valentine’s Day is actually my FAVORITE holiday because I view it as a celebration of ALL the love in my life. The day doesn’t necessarily have to be tied only to romantic love. I love to remind everyone in my life how important they are to me and Valentine’s Day is an extra special day to do that!

As an extension of our Hug-O-Grams, you can order yourself a Valentine’s Day card that will arrive from one of our CT Working Moms writers with a special personal note. For free. For realz. We are a community and a community supports its members. Feeling down about not having a significant other for V-Day? Don’t fret! Let us lift you up and remind you that you are loved.

Our Special Nightly Ritual

Jan 14, 2016 by

Oh bedtime. How I love you and hate you at the same time. I hate that it takes 15 tries to get my daughter to go upstairs to begin the process of getting her to bed. I hate the struggle to put her pjs on. I hate having to force her to brush her teeth. But I love you much more than I hate you.

I love getting into my daughter’s bed at the end of every day to spend some quiet time with her. I love the special conversations we seem to have when we’re snuggled up in her blankets together. I love when she puts her sweet, soft arms around me and says “I love you mommy.”

What’s Harder – Dating as a Feminist or a Single Mom?

Jan 6, 2016 by

OH MY WORD LADIES. OH MY WORD. The dating scene is horrifying. Horrifying.

This month marks one year since my ex and I decided to go the divorce route. I wasn’t ready to date for a long time but relatively recently decided to put myself back out there again. I made myself an online dating profile and figured I’d just see where that goes. I’m not the type of person that has to always be in a relationship, I’m quite happy on my own, so I’m trying to have a casual feel to this whole thing.

A Goddess Gathering

We bloggers have a super secret blogger group on Facebook.  It’s a way for us to throw around ideas, ask each other questions and just plain old kibitz.

A while back someone mentioned they were scared to click on a link to “Beyonce’s Body After Baby.”  I think we all know what these headlines bring.  All you have to do is do a simple Google search for “body after baby” and you see these celebrities with their impossible-to-attain-their-normal-size-nevermind-their-post-preggo-size photo spread in the latest gossip mag.
