Um, if you spend the utility bill money on snack cakes and give your kids ice cream sandwiches for dinner, you're kind of failing at this whole parenting thing.

Also, single mothers are NOT superior to a nuclear family, nor are they inferior. They just are what they are. My best friend was raised by two aunts alongside three cousins. There's no family type that's better or worse than any other.

I really kind of want to smack this lady and tell her to get a grip and stop being so bitter, and that her BITTERNESS is what's keeping her from getting laid, not her kids. Ugh.

As a single mother who raised her now adult son by herself, with no help whatsoever from his father, I'd like to smack this woman upside the head and tell her to stop giving other single moms a bad name. And for the record, it IS hard to raise a child by yourself.

Um, yeah. Kudos to you, Bathia. I am having a hard enough time envisioning getting it right even WITH a levelheaded mister around, which I'm grateful for. This lady just seems like such a horrible human being, and her kids are probably screwed up because mom lays around in greasy sweats and feeds them ice cream for dinner and doesn't pay the bills. The f*ck.

I made sure my kid got proper meals and while I wasn't dressed fancy or anything and did wear sweats in the wintertime, they were always clean, as were my kid's clothing. You can't set a good example for your child if you don't bath, wear clean clothing, eat your vegetables, etc. Bills were paid too, occasionally a little late, but I always called them & let them know I'd be paying by a certain date.

TLDR...

But I did check her list of blog entries... from what I gather... she's Jewish (NTTAWWT), likes polish food, is a lawyer and reviews a lot of Tucson restaurants and AZ resorts.

So... you know... that's something.

You don't have to spent the bill money on snacks...that's what the food stamp card is for!  At least it is at every goddamn quickie store I go to.

Yeah, the utility bill goes to liquor and the rent gets blown on slots and lotto.

One parent is adequate if it's a good parent.  Two is preferable unless one's a bad parent.

Kids find role models even if one parent isn't around.  Mine included an uncle, a barber, a pharmacist, a high school employer, and Tim Allen.
 
2013-06-06 07:50:53 AM  
Married men generally don't have opinions on single mothers unless they're really hot, and single men frequently find that we come with "too much baggage, dude." "Baggage" means "offspring." Then there are the pedophiles, who get completely different expressions on their face when they find out you're a single mother!

That's convenient: men who don't like her think she's over the baggage limit, and men that do must be pedophiles. I guess that's one way to never have to wonder if you're driving away people because you're a shrieking harpie.
 
2013-06-06 07:56:08 AM  
What a wonderful attitude she has.  I'm glad she doesn't feel the need to have "a man" around except for that monthly check, because with that world view, she's unlikely to get any sausage evar again.

Also:  Your blog sucks.  I mean...it really, REALLY sucks.

Get your attitude adjusted, you screaming harpy.

I was thinking some of that baby-daddy-money went to cocaine or something.  And, considering (based off of another Farker's comment) she's also a lawyer, that's a lot of lotto and blow she must be buying while feeding her kids nothing but ice cream sammiches.

So basically, male role models are useless and being a single mom is great because you don't have a partner around. That means you can act like human excrement and nobody calls you on it.  Nice. I bet her children are going to turn out just fine.

I'm pretty happy that my single mother was nothing like this lady.  When I got my engineering degree I gave my mom a big hug and said thanks.  Her son on the other hand will be calling her 'beyotch' through the prison intercom.
 
2013-06-06 08:30:10 AM  
What a long winded biatch.

And, she's single.

How did a prize like this end up single?
 
2013-06-06 08:31:56 AM  
I guess when you go around saying "I'm a single mother *HEAVY SIGH* " you can purposefully elicit those types of responses.
 
2013-06-06 08:32:25 AM  
I wish I could get that kind of adoration for saying I'm a single father. I usually just get a punch in the gut and the cold shoulder for the rest of the day.

My wife's such a harpy.
 
2013-06-06 08:33:38 AM  
Man that woman needs to get laid.

Too bad she's got two kids.

And hairy legs.

And doesn't bathe.

And eats Little Debby in the dark while bouncing checks.

She's a catch for someone.

She has a high-paying job. And a second one, reviewing restaurants and resorts, without the 'baggage' along. Because, you know, taking that mouthy teenager to a resort would completely ruin her chances of getting some man getting a good idea of what the place is like.

The article was humorous and irreverent, and probably shouldn't be interpreted as a literal representation of the author's views or behavior.
 
2013-06-06 08:39:04 AM  
Also, she calls me "beyotch" 100% less than the teenage boy-- an endearing quality, truly.

Do you know how we know that you pity us?


Well, I pity you because your son calls you biatch all the time.

Going a bit out of your way to find something to trash women, eh, Subs? I mean, this is essentially a LiveJournal. She's got 8 followers, for chrissake. But fine, let's all dutifully point and laugh at her as if any of it was serious.
 
2013-06-06 08:42:35 AM  
Lady, when people tell you you have too much baggage, they're not talking about your kids. They're talking about that cross you're carrying around for your ex. Smoldering resentment and a martyr complex are two of the most unattractive personality traits a person can have.
 
2013-06-06 08:43:14 AM  
Good Lord this woman is insane.

I'm a single mother, don't have a lot of trouble getting laid, pay my bills (mostly) on time, and make sure I've bathed and so has the Lil Bee. Seriously, that's not the hard part of parenting. Being told you have too much "baggage" usually doesn't necessarily mean "kids" it means "You're not looking for a date, you're looking for a dad for your kids."
 
2013-06-06 08:44:08 AM  
If your teenage son is giving you shiat on a daily basis you're doing it wrong. I know I know - teenagers can be a pain. I've raised 2 of my own. However there is a difference between testing the limits of your independence and acting like an asshole.

FWIW neither of my kids ever treated me or anyone else with disrespect. That doesnt mean they were angels it just means they arent assholes.

But really, who cares? I mean its just some random lady's blog.

It is just hard to raise good kids, single or not. Not having a partner to help can make it more tiring to be a good parent.

Also! Shes also probably not in a hurry to have more. There is no desperate need to make babies before she turns 35.  Added bonus - you get to see how she treats her ex.

I do have to say this though, she is spot on with her comments about not having to "do everything" as she refers to it. Before you roast me over the coals, let me put my .02 in. A spouse who doesn't contribute 50/50 (or in my case, about 10%) is like having another whiny child.  I'm not talking about feeding them ice cream for dinner or being a lazy beeotch, I'm talking about not having to compromise about every.damn.thing. You don't have to listen to the whining about the commute or what you've made (or haven't made) for dinner. No begging them to give the crotchfruit a shower after swim practice so you can fold his work clothes which won't get put away for a week. No begging them to weed eat the yard after you've been mowing for 2+ hours, painted the kid's room, volunteered for the kid's school and cleaned the house. The expectations are lower on single parents, and most work outside the home. The "roles" of the sexes are still a double effing standard and it makes me see red.

Kinda like scouring the comments section of a small town newspaper to find a guy who says dumb things about Obama so we can mock?

Or "exposing" some backwoods redneck in Asshole, Alabama, who said something racist on their facebook page so we can all cry OMG Racist!!!?

I think youre onto something there. This poor woman is about to get way more attention than she needs or deserves.

Her ideas about parenting have likely evolved since then. In any event Id hate to be taken to task for some silly drunk post I wrote 6 years ago.

No. It really isnt. The norm is self-professed media outlets like huffpo or politico. Threads like this are the exception not the rule.

Besides being an old posting, I think the posteress, was being sarcastic.  You can develop that being a Single Mom.  You can also develop depression, killer anxiety, lack of trust, despair and on and on.
On the other hand, you can become Sarcastic Woman able to see through solid bullsh-t, and bend feeble minds with your bare hands.
My mom was a single mom.  It didn't start out that way but that's where it went.
My Mom was tougher than me, my brother and most men I know today.

If your biological kid is calling you "Beyotch", you've done many somethings wrong.
 
2013-06-06 09:00:22 AM  
Once again I will say that somewhere along the way 'Single Mother' got to be a badge of honor rather than what it actually...

You're a single mother? That's nice. You're one half a failed relationship. You want a prize for that?

This excludes the small minority out there who really are blameless. Maybe he took off, or something tragic happened, or maybe she kicked the bum out but most of you 'single mothers' are just failed relationships.
 
2013-06-06 09:02:54 AM  
My girlfriend is a single mom (divorced) and there are pros and cons.   Cons:  when she has the kid, she has to do everything (not the nothing the biatchy writer described).  Get kids dressed, to school, get them after school, shuttle them to friends, soccer practice, school activities, etc.  All while holding down a job as a Physician's Assistant (yay, she can write scrips!).  Then help with homework, get them fed and to bed.  With no help.

Pros:  Every other weekend she has totally free while the kids are with dad.  Plus they each take one kid and rotate on Wed/Thurs nights, so they get quality time and only deal with one kid each.   And twice a year the ex takes the kids for a week somewhere, like Austria or Jamaica.   Which means she gets a week of vacation with me.

Yet somehow she does this and feeds her kids very healthy food (more than I would) and gets them lots of exercise.

And FTA:

"Kids, especially boys, need a male role model."

No they don't.


Wow, nice logical reasoning.  Thanks for backing up your statement.

A friend of my wife is married and has a child for a husband.  Dude is pathetic.  He doesn't cook, clean, or take care of the child and she's the breadwinner.  WTF?  He just plays X-Box.  I don't know how she deals.  I think her family's traditional values and her fear of their disapproval is what got her here and what prevents her from leaving.
