Adventures in Boyland
It’s been quite some time since I’ve blogged. Maybe it’s because I’ve been busy. I got accepted into grad school, was awarded a grant for grad school, and have filled out more applications in the last few months than most people will in a year. I also presented at Ignite Boise which you can watch here while continuing to work and be mommy to my two not so little monsters.
Or maybe it’s because my last post was about how awful match.com is, and how it would never work for me. Maybe I’ve been wanting to avoid the awkward moment where I have to admit how very wrong I was, because I in fact met someone quite wonderful right after that post. That person has in fact caused a great deal of happiness in my life and I’ve never seen evidence of a confederate flag. So in order to avoid that awkwardness I’ll just skip ahead and say “I’ve entered the world of dating with kids”.
I think as a result of this I’m going to create a line of apology/thank you cards for single parents to use on their significant others. Here’s some in particular that I have in mind:
I’m really sorry that my kid sneezed in your face.
My sincerest apologies that my kid punched you in the balls. Again.
I’m sorry that my kid says “I like you” by spitting milk at you.
I promise to never use the word “potty” that much in a conversation again.
Thank you for watching Ni Hao Kailan 33 times in a row (sometimes the same episode), and for singing the Hot Dog Song during Mickey Mouse Clubhouse .
I appreciate you trying to keep a straight face after a three year old scolded you to “Keep your hands to yourself!” when you patted my leg.
Just a few ideas, mostly to keep me laughing, since that was my 2010 resolution. Because of all the things I’ve done this year, this new chapter has proven to be by far the most amusing. I definitely want to hear some other horror stories from single parents out there, so I know I’m not alone in the mortification my children can cause.
