For those of you who have also spent some time as single moms, are you also offended by the question currently touted on the iVillage landing page "Do wokring moms miss kids' milestones?"

I remember the first time I tied my shoe. I hid in the bedroom and worked at it until I finally did it, then I came out to show everyone!

Congrats to you Music. It's hard but I think as long as it all comes out well, it's fine. Like you said, what kid remembers the day they tied their shoe or colored inside the lines for the first time.

I think my inlaws kind of looked down on me for working but the fact of the matter is that my kids turned out better for it in some ways.

I thought it was the most ridiculous survey I;ve ever seen. Give me a break, of ocurse we do - is someone trying to make us feel guilty for providing a better standard of living? My SIL is a very pretentious SAHM as is my sister. Get over it.

They start to be interesting to me at around age four.

I learned an important lesson early in motherhood:

And if you don't have kids at all, ivillage doesn't seem to have much for you at all. But don't get me started on that...I've already learned that my opinion doesn't really matter.

And I love little kids, but the way. They are far more interesting than a lot of adults. You just have to be a kid at heart like I am!

I was thinking about this when I saw the question, and now that my DD is 22, you know what?
