This was such a busy forum just a couple of weeks ago... now it seems like everybody has strayed off. Did eveyone but me get remarried? Now where am I going to go with questions like:

What should I do if my breasts start squirting on a hot date?
and,
My ex is a piece of crap. is there an herbal remedy for that?

Well I'm just going to have to BOMBARD Single Parenting with new posts and hopefully tomorrow you'll all come back!

I'm here But I'm off to bed now.... it's 1 am and I've got to be up at 7. And who knows how many times DS is going to be up to nurse between now and 7.

Hope others come out to play tomorrow!

We're still here. We go through times when it's really busy and then there seems to be a bit more quiet.

Thanks for the laugh -- the squirting milk on a hot date thing and the herbal remedy. Boy, we could make a fortune if we could find one though!

I'm still here, just don't have much to talk about lately.

Hi. I am still relatively new...but here just the same. Thanks for the laugh...too funny. I have to say I really enjoy this forum. Although I am not completely single....I have been there and whether or not I will be again is really as un predictable as the weather...but anywho... I enjoy this "single parenting forum" more than the rest...so I hope you guys don't mind that I am a slight cheater.. I have found some very compassionate, warm and caring souls here. You guys ROCK!!

I wish, if anyone finds one, please post it. What ever it is, I'll buy a ton of it.

Still here as well. My youngest is a very active 2 year old now so I get to read a lot but can't always respond. Still deal with the same ex crap, not paying child support, bearly coming by to see them, acting like an ass.

MamaFern~ I remember your post from a few weeks ago, when your SO was leaving. I hope you and your son are still doing well!

girlzmommy00: yay!!! I'm not there yet, but soon. I was 21 when I had my first DD and before that I had serious relationships... so I never actually dated. That's one thing I'm looking forward to!

I'm around! Have not had much to say because, well, things are going pretty smoothly.

I'm dating someone awesome, my x has moved to NY, and life is pretty good!

I've been spending too much time over in the diapering forum anyway (it makes me spend $$, not good :LOL) so I'll try to pop over here more often.

im doing good thanks..

elwynn is napping. we just walked down to the health food store to get goats milk..the fresh air always makes him sleepy.

i just got a call from "family maintainance" which is this offshoot of welfare in canada.. they said thatthey were going to contact him Months ago..like almost a year.and i get this letter saying I missed an appointment i didnt even know about.. and now they are going to search my house because his mailing address is my house.. its his mothers house but he does not live here.. its so frustrating . idont want strangers snooping around in my sacred space! but i guess thats what you get for having a baby with someone who wont pay child support

I'm still here.... having a rough go of it right now, but surviving and trying to dig myself out of a self-imposed hole with my parents (re: money issues - it will be OK but will take time to heal). I've decided I have to quit school and get a full-time job because ex is not paying c/s at all, and my business venture with "W" is not getting off the ground yet, but I'm expecting to spend more time on it in the coming weeks. Otherwise... my kids are doing well, we're healthy, and my relationship is going along nicely.

As far as the initial questions are concerned....

Now that I'm staying over at "W"s about once a week, I've had to start bringing my breast pump along for the ride and roll out of bed to pump around midnight. Otherwise, there is a bit of "spurtage" by the time I get to my son to nurse again. I'd suggest you try to pump ahead of time in order to avoid this issue.

As for the herbal remedy for jerk ex's: I suppose the only remedy is "rescue remedy" for us everytime we have to deal with them!

Foxglove (digitalis), but I don't know the fatal dose...

I'm here, and still kinda new. XH moved out on Sunday, so I'm still getting to know this single mom thing. With the exception of the finances, I'm diggin' it. It's nice to have so much less tension in the house. We are all clearly still adjusting, and I look forward to seeing where our lives are in a few months.

I had an interview yesterday for a position in the Children's Activity Room at the local rec center (gym nursery, basically). If I get it, it would be some extra money while keeping my kids with me, which is good. Wish me luck.

we hung out with another single momma from our town today. we walked to the park and all around and vented about our X's... it was quite refreshing!

i found $25.00 while walking down the street too..which was amazing! that kind of thing never happens to me..well i guess it does now!

then i made dinner.. organic pasta with sauteed kale and garlic and olive oil and grated cheese on top. simple but sooo yummy!

all in all our day has been great. oh and i got a call that his dad is in manitoba.. far away and i feel good about that right now.

ok - I'm here to. I've been reading the mothering message board for eons but just started posting a little over a year ago. I tend to keep my "mouth" shut. I'm 43, so no guys on the horizon but I must say I have a marvelous figure and a wonderful sense of humor. My life be good now, but 2 -3 years ago it was way scary. Brooklyn's in the house.

cheers

I'm back. I dissappeared for a while because I got really busy. I started a second job and I've had to travel a lot for training, blah, blah, blah. But now I'm back on track and ready to post again.

I've missed you mamas!
