I am just a torn and broken, hopeless romantic who attempts to hold strong to the idea of finding the one and falling madly in love.
*Lord, I pray this doesn’t read as the help wanted ad that it may sound like.
Despite what your seemingly perfect mom friends say or do, when family members and friends offer to babysit (and repay them with a coffee gift card or by returning the favor for their kids).
In the beginning, it will be hard to loosen the reins of control, but eventually, it will feel comforting to know that help is a phone call away.
Now that I stand two years strong in the midst of both, I must embrace it with open arms while strategically making my best attempt at conquering the dating game. However, dating as a black woman brings about an entirely new challenge. Imagine the ingredients of that casserole being a black woman, three children, and living in a foreign country.
Being divorced and a single mother of three at the ripe age of thirty-two was never one of my life goals.So much so, that we are now seeking advice from men to show us how to get and keep a man. Look, I’m not trying to create a modern day Brady Bunch type family.Men have become best selling authors by writing books and articles like Steve Harvey’s, “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man“. Can you afford to support an additional four humans if this pans out to be something? The thought of 4 Deep turning into 8 Deep overnight seriously frightens me to my soul.But be warned: It’s important not to become a recluse, or to feel sorry for yourself.Just get used to planning ahead to get out (and you _absolutely _should get out)!I actually like compartmentalizing my lives as a mom and as a dating woman.
