Single Mom Falls in Love…Again…

Posted by on Oct 15, 2009 in Dating as a Single Mom |

Falling in love and staying there is all about the little things, isn’t it? Okay, the big things help, but really, I relish feeling it in everyday moments.  Last Monday, I made a feeble offer to cook food for the three of us, me, my boyfriend and my daughter.  My boyfriend remarked that I looked tired (which I was) and proposed we order Thai food.  A smile appeared on my face and I nodded; but my little eight year old angel shook her head, no. “I had Thai last night at daddy’s house mom.”  To which my boyfriend said, “Why don’t I go to the store, honey, and I’ll make us some stroganoff, okay?”  My smile returned and I nodded again. He went to the store, made us a delicious meal that filled my condo with comforting aromas; but alas, my little one was upset.  “Why did he get to pick our dinner and not us?”  Sigh.  So, some guilt later, I went to bed.  The next day, my boyfriend and I were in the car and he said, “I have an idea. Let’s take her (my daughter) to the grocery store tomorrow night and we’ll let her pick out whatever she wants to have for dinner and then go home and make it.”   If he hadn’t been driving, I would have leapt into his lap and showered him with kisses.  And that’s why I fell in love with him again, a mere 14 months into our relationship.

  • Swati says:

    Thanks Cherry! I am so glad you came out for a visit….looking forward to talking with you more!!
    p.s. he is sweet, and patient 🙂

  • Wow, this conversation sounds VERY similar to what has gone down recently in my own home be: my boyfriend, my daughter, and me!!

    What’s tricky about this, however, is when a child (mine?) wants to have control over what is served EVERY meal. I’m trying to teach her what it means to compromise, such an important lesson. Sometimes she gets to choose the meal — or, one part of it — and other times, she needs to learn how to go with the flow.

    Hi Single Mom Seeking (Rachel),
    First, let me say how appreciative I am of you visiting my blog! It’s really great to have you here! And second, you are so right…it’s so complicated…throw in my boyfriend’s daughters visiting his house, and bascially no one’s happy about who chooses the meal :-)!
