Playing for Stone

Playing for Stone

Commented Apr 18, 2014 at 19:27:55 in Parents

“William, sorry if this hit a bit of a nerve. I think a mother "complaining" about wanting to do something other than playing with her children would hear a lot from the chorus...more than fathers, I imagine. Gee. Proof.”

WilliamL on Apr 20, 2014 at 08:46:37

“It is not that it hit a nerve it is that I spent a years as the primary for two children since both were born so I understand the days at the park or mommy and me or up to you ass in laundry and dishes and being covered with a wide variety of baby juice as well as some bottle breast milk on the back of my shoulder out of sight - I have been there - so the noise that mothers would rather be doing something else ? They are young for such a short time and those years will be behind them soon enough so they might consider enjoying it instead of wanting to be doing something else.”

“Kristen,

You articulated so nicely what I think a lot of new mothers are just...hit over the head with...and that's the loneliness and isolation you feel at first. Glad to count you as one of my dearest bloggy sisters-in-crime.”

hp blogger Kristen Levithan on Aug 27, 2013 at 15:01:31

“It's shocking, isn't it, how alone you can feel doing something that women have been doing for millennia before us? But that isolation knocked the wind out of me for a long time. Thank you for being one of the voices that welcomed me online from the get-go and made me feel so much less alone.”

“This was just the reminder I needed this week. I'm so scattered with back-to-school things (and forgetting them) that I feel like C- mommy. Thanks, Alison. This was lovely.”

“I agree, Wolf--we need to change the conversation. When someone tells me I "look great for my age," I wonder, "why not just tell me I look great?"”

hp blogger D. A. Wolf on Mar 29, 2013 at 12:04:14

“Yes - exactly, TKW!

And do we ever say "you look great for your age" to a man? (Don't think so.)”

“I loved reading this the second time as much as did the first. Your writing (and your observations) are luminous.”

“I was one of those "praying s/he doesn't pee in the book nook" mommies. Both times.”

“In my kids' preschool, the book nook is in a loft space over the building center - quite an inviting place to have an accident, methinks. ;)”

Dating After Divorce: Do Single Moms Face A Sexual Double Standard?

“Wolfie, I think the most important point of this post is "kids have good instincts about people." It's true! I am always amazed at the varied reactions my kids have to people--they just go with their gut, and it eerily accurate.”

hp blogger D. A. Wolf on Oct 25, 2012 at 10:28:07

“Kitch, Thanks so much for stopping by to read and comment. I think you nailed my primary point. Kids have excellent instincts. We should pay close attention.

I will add that a good deal depends on the age of the children. Some ages are easier when it comes to accepting a new potential partner (in fact, they may want a new mom or dad so badly they'd accept anyone, and they're too young to discern how they're being treated much less their single parent). But a little older? They're Kid GPS is often right on the money.

But it's trouble again (potentially) when they hit adolescence. Their own changes are difficult enough; if having to deal with a mother or father's sexuality front and center, that can skew their impressions, but more importantly, I believe, make their own discoveries and transitions more challenging.

My bottom line: After divorce - kids first. I know many don't agree with that. But it's my bottom line.”

“I'm guilty all the time, and I'm not even a single parent! I don't know how single parents do it--I'd be completely overwhelmed. I love the idea of the "dinner egg."”

hp blogger D. A. Wolf on Jun 12, 2012 at 17:16:53

“@thekitchwitch - You make me laugh. Yes, I think some of us are wired to feel like we're never doing enough... And I know you can make the perfect egg, of any sort...

Thanks for reading and commenting, Kitch!”

“Wolf, I started cackling as soon as I read "foghorn." You crack me up. But you are right--Kelsey Grammer makes my blood boil. How capriciously stupid is that man?”

“BLW, this reflects your strength in so many ways--it's honest, it's thought-provoking, it's not overly emotional and yet, when you read it, you do feel that tug in your insides. You are right; the system has failed a lot of us.”
