Sexy Single Moms . .
I was a single mom from 1991 - 2004. I was completely alone raising ds who is going to be 15 this summer ( when did that happen?) . . . I had never lived with anyone or had any lengthy previous relationships ( until now and yes girls it is worth the wait don't EVER settle !) . . . what I miss/love most is:
Being a sexy, single woman.
( yes, I know it is possible to be sexy and married but there is a certain mystery and allure when single and dating)
My son is an amazing kid. Being his mother adds and gives meaning to everything I do in my life.
Christmas: When my 20 something single sisters were having brunch at the 4 seasons Christmas day. Me 'n ds were at home covered in wrapping paper ohhing and ahhing over the presents santa brought.
Holidays: just the two of us and the open road. DS learned to navigate and read maps better then me !
Learning to ski, going to the drive - in, the fun the mundane and everything in between.
I could and did breastfeed for as long as I wanted ( weaned at 5)
Looking back I am proud of my accomplishments as a mother and a woman We are not a statistic.( single mother on welfare, deliquint kid ) Ds is a good student and an amazing kid. I still get a hug and kiss before he takes the bus to school.
I loved being a single mother I miss that 'chapter' in my life. To all the single moms out there: own it!
