Thank you for checking out my profile. This in no way reflects all of who I am, but I think it will help you figure out if you want to know more.
I'm smart, witty, I like to laugh and I know what I want. I've worked hard most of my life to support myself or my son, and I'm looking for a man who will add love, companionship, passion, teamwork and fun! Most of what I do revolves around the life I'm living with my son. I've been a single mom from the very beginning and raising a child on your own is harder than you could ever imagine. I don't make spontaneous decisions or purchases very often, and I usually have a plan or know what I'm going to do next. I have to!!
I'm not impressed with men who say they enjoy traveling or exploring the world or trying new things like skydiving or feeding lions. That's just not what single moms with kids do. We like to go to parks or local festivals and events, watch movies, play board games, go to soccer practice...you know "family" stuff. I'll tell you right now, my life is not all that exciting, but I like it that way. When we travel, we visit family members out of state. If you want to travel the world and go on an adventure every weekend, I am not the woman for you. Six year olds don't really care to go hiking, admire art, or travel to exotic places...unless you're talking about the zoo! :)
I am raising an energetic and sometimes challenging son, and life is exciting enough just as it is. An adventure for my son and I is eating out, making a new friend at a park, or finding a new route in our neighborhood. On Friday and Saturday nights, we spend our time with a movie and some popcorn or playing games. We have Taco Tuesday just about every week. We make homemade pizza together. We work on homework together, and I read to my son before he goes to sleep every night. We watch Sid the Science Kid, The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That and other educational kids show. We go for bike rides and walks. We go down slides, swing on swings, and climb. I guess I sound a little boring and predictable. Sometimes living a "normal" life can still be great if you share it with the right person!
Don't get me wrong. I had my days of going out every weekend, spending time with friends, taking weekends trips, and being a fun-loving, single adult, but those days are over. Those things will not raise a respectful, responsible son and make me the mom I want to be. An occasional night out to dinner and a movie or something fun would be great (in fact, I need that), but most weekends are spent at home being a family.
If you're ready to settle down, do the "family" thing and live the routine of a "normal" life, then let me know. If you still want to travel all the time, explore new places and foods, and "see what the world has to offer", enjoy my pics and good luck on your search. I know that sounds harsh, but, like I said, I know what I want.
