I’m a multimedia journalist, turned single mother. Well, I became a mom on December 3rd, 2010, but I think the moment I found out I was pregnant and refused a glass of wine, I became a mom.
How exactly did I get here? Oh…well, how long do you have? Who did this happen with? No comment. Where? In the city that never sleeps, I’m not sleeping either. Not that the last 8 years of my life have included much sleep at all. While I was a producer in TV News, I wasn’t exactly working banker’s hours. When? I found out I was pregnant two days before my 30th birthday. On that day – the way I saw the world changed forever. And now I am relying on my family, my friends and my sense of humor.
Really, at the end of the day, the only things I don’t think are funny are death and terminal illness. Life is too short not to laugh. And yes, there are even funny things about navigating being a single, working mom in Manhattan.
