I'm mostly an editorial writer. I love to share my opinions and experiences. I don't hold back and I swear so if you take offense easily, my articles probably aren't for you. I'm a single mom just trying to stay sane.

    Lorelei's Letters—Letter Four

    Lorelei's Letters—Letter Four

    Lorelei's Letters is a series of posts addressed for my daughter, but that have general statements that I believe everyone should hear from someone, at some point in their lives. Basically, they are letters from mother to daughter, trying to explain this crazy world, and give some advice. A lot of them are on dark topics that I hope my daughter will get through with no scars. I hope you enjoy, or at least take something from the letters. Know that no matter who you are, where you are, or what you've done, you are loved. - A mother

    "Daddy"

    "Daddy"

    As many of you know, I'm a single mom. I'm in a serious relationship and I don't hide my daughter from that fact. Granted, she's only about three so it's not like I can sit down and have a full blown conversation with her about it. However, he's involved in our lives. He helps me with pick-up and drop-off at daycare, on Saturday mornings he watches her for a couple of hours while I work, and so that he can build a relationship with her. When I say serious, I don't just mean that we've been together for a while, I mean that we're building together, planning together, and encouraging each other to go further. I am completely for him building a relationship with my daughter. He's a positive male role model, which she has in her grandpa, and a few of my close friends, but nothing that is constant. My boyfriend is very respectful, and supports my parenting decisions. Even if he doesn't completely agree, he never disagrees with me in front of Lorelei. I back him too.

    50 Questions to Ask a Guy

    50 Questions to Ask a Guy

    One of my avid readers suggested to me that I do one of the 'ask your guy' challenges now that I'm seriously dating someone. And probably since I'm known for doing the 'writing challenges.' I thought it would be a fun, low-key way to play a more random get-to-know-you game since we already know each other pretty well. These made for some fun stories though and I think he had fun answering them with me. The questions are in BOLD, his answers are Italicized, and my thoughts are normal text. Enjoy!

    Lorelei's Letters - Letter One

    Lorelei's Letters - Letter One

    I have written letters before that were addressed to my daughter; in fact, I keep a diary for her for when she's older with more, personal (specific family stuff and stuff I went through and am going through). A friend and an avid reader of mine suggested I do a series—since I've done them before, but make it a little more permanent.
