A Lovely Thing, A Wonderful Love

We have a great thing, Elliot and I. I am sure everybody thinks their baby is the cutest ever, but I really really think I have the most wonderful, adorable, gorgeous, happiest baby ever. EVER.  He is so sunny.  Smiley. Healthy.  Handsome. It’s insane to me.  I am 100% smitten.  And a really nice perk of being his mommy is that he seems to be smitten with me too.  It’s an incredible feeling to be able to calm him with just a smile or smooch.

I haven’t been writing at all – between caring for Elliot and spending a lot of time just staring at him and also being back to work full time, I let everything else go for a while.  But I do miss getting things down and as I learn and experience things, I’d like to get back into the swing of it.

Twisting the Tale

An alternative to the old (and outdated) ‘Once upon a time…’

Instead I chose to jump right to the chapter of the story entitled Motherhood. As any writer does, I made a few edits and a few errors. And life threw in some plot … Continue reading

Mother’s Day – My Son Is Grown

 For a good part of my adult life, I wanted to be a mother, but as I got older, I worried that it might not happen for me. I hadn’t met the right man to marry, so how could I become a mom? But then, one day, I realized that even though I hadn’t found my life partner, I could be a single mother by choice. There was even an organization that provided support and information to women like me: Single Mothers by Choice (SMC), for women who were mature, ready for motherhood, but single.  It WAS possible. Months later, I had made my dream a reality.  I was a mother.

Motherhood was the joyous center of my life for many years. I had enjoyed my career and had a pretty satisfying life, both before becoming a mom and throughout my mothering years. But there was something about being a … Continue reading
