Single Parent Dating Issues

If you are a single parent who is trying to date you have probably have issues about dating again. Here are just a few of the concerns that most single moms and dad have about venturing onto the dating scene to find a new love.

It is true that many single men and women have a second job to help them support the family. Between working and cleaning and caring for the children this leaves little time for a romance. Many single parents just want to come home and pass out in bed.

The upshot is that you have to plan your new dating life the same way you would anything else in your life as a single parent. You need to set aside a certain amount of time every week to get a makeover, fix yourself up and find a good babysitter.

So many single parents are also out of shape physically. This is due to leading a stressful lifestyle that leads to bad eating habits and a lack of exercise.

Furthermore many single parents always put their kids first and never splurge on the kind of makeovers or clothing that would be more attractive to the opposite sex.

Basically if you are serious about dating spend some time on your skin, your hair and working out and buy yourself some clothes that shows the opposite sex that you mean business when it comes to love.

Many candidates on the single parent dating scene are single because they have been burned by an ex partner. They are not in good shape emotionally. It may even take some single men or women to get into the dating scene again and it can be really difficult emotionally.

The thing that will help the single parent who is ready to love again the most is to get over his or her fear of what can happen. Trying to have a sense of humor about the past can help. In order for a single parent to have a healthy new relationship there must be some kind of attempt made to deal with pas resentments. It can be very difficult to allow yourself to be loved again but it is often the right thing to do, especially if you want your children to have a new mommy or daddy in their future.

Most single parent dating can be arranged through dating sites only for singles parents like SingleParentFlirt.com but that approach is not for everyone. You can definitely people offline as well. You can find mixers and events planned by entrepreneurs at bars and night clubs. There are also things out there like walks in the parks for singles and single dances. Churches sometimes hold dances for newly divorced or widowed parents as well.

Choosing Baby Names

Before choosing a name for your baby, there are several things that you need to consider and by the way you can take your time. Don’t feel you have to name your baby right away especially if he or she arrives early. This is a matter that does deserve some careful thought.

The first thing you need to consider is the baby’s ancestry. Usually it is nice to give your baby a first or a middle name that refers somehow to a relative in your family tree or at the very least a name that relates to a respected figure in that culture. This goes back to an ancient belief that maintains that the guardian spirit of the person the baby is named after will always watch over the child.

Before you give your child a name, be sure to look up it’s meaning on a site like ThisName.com to make sure that it does not have unflattering connotations. For instance, the name Luxton, might sound very elegant and mean “elegance” in English, but if your child is Jewish, the name will translate to mean “limp noodle.”

Another example? The name Kali might sound cute and pretty for a little girl, but in India it is the name of a Goddess of Death. Before naming your baby you should also do the “call it out loud test.”

Realize that during the first decade and a half of the child’s life that you will be calling (and maybe even yelling) this name out frequently. This is where choosing a name with a good casual short form is a good idea. The best names are those that also grant the child a versatile shorter name. For instance the name Delilah could allow a child to be called Lilly, Lilah, Dee and Del.

Yet another thing is to consider if other children will make fun of your name. Remember Gaylord Focker in “Meet the Parents.” You want to avoid a scenario like that for your child. I once had a friend named Dorcas who was the daughter of an admiral. This had great significance for her father because the name meant “Sea Goddess.” However she was cursed by the nickname Dorcas her entire life. Is the name really difficult to spell?

You can save your child a lot of grief later in life if you avoid names that don’t sound like they are spelt or that can be spelt several different ways. A classic example is Sharmain or Sharmaine or Charmain or Charmaign or Charmaine.) These can get misspelled on government and insurance forms.

You should also not give your child a name that might be shared by too many other people in the world. For instance if your last name is Smith try for a more exotic name for your child than Susan, Tom, or John. This could also cause them problems with government forms and identity theft later in life as these names are really all too common. Now that you know the ground rules when it comes to naming your child, you are ready to choose a name. The rest of the course is really just a matter of your good taste!

Ways to Use a Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter

One of the best uses for a heart shaped cookie cutter in of course to make cookies. Decorating cookies made out of a heart shaped cookie cutter can be an enjoyable family project. If you are scared that little ones will cut their fingers then buy plastic ones. The plastic ones also double as toys for cutting out play-dough after you are done using them for St. Valentine’s Day.

You can sprinkle these heart shapes cookies with just about any decorations that you like including red glitter, pink glitter pink sugar balls and edible silver balls. He3t shaped cookies also look nice dusted with pick or red Jell-O powder or paved with thick pink sugar icing.

You can also take two sugar cookies and press jam or pink icing between them. Heart shaped cookie cutters can also be used to make Jell-O treats. Simply add an extra package of clear gelatin like Knox gelatin to a pan and let it gel. You can then use the cookie cutters to create the heart shapes. This makes great finger food for toddlers. The glittering heart shapes also make beautiful decorations for other desserts including cakes puddings and pies. The extra gelatin makes them stiff enough to pick up with your fingers.

You can also make mini cakes using the cutters to make a delectable valentine’s day treat. Yet another use is for making heart shaped ice cubes and centerpieces.

The cookie cutters can also be used as templates for cutting hearts it of construction paper. Simply trace a line around the cutter and then cut it out. You can then decorate the heart as you please. You can also use it to create heart out of a photograph. You can then trim the ribbon with whatever you like so it looks nice.

In essence the heart shaped cookie cutter has been used to make a heart shaped object out o anything. You can fill them with plaster, clay or paper mache to make decorations and paperweights. You can paint the result with latex or acrylic paint. You can even embed objects. Within the heart shaped mold is space to place a flower or shell or other curio along with acrylic plastic. This is a great way to make an elegant broach. Simply use feathers to create a brooch or ornament that says “my heart has wings”.

You can cookie cutters themselves to make all kinds of crafts including sculptures of earrings and brooches.

Do You Have a Fire Safety Plan?

During the formative years of your child it is important to bear in mind fire safety in his her bedroom. To this end here are a few tips that you should keep in mind.

Avoid synthetics. That goes for everything from toys to clothing to decor. Synthetics burn faster, hotter and produce much higher quantities of toxic fumes than natural materials.

First and foremost consult with your local hardware store to acquire as class “A” fire retardant paint. This will help stop the spread of fire on the wall surfaces. Also avoid the use of carpet, they are all synthetic in nature and produce copious amounts of toxic gases under fire conditions. Natural hard-wood floors are preferred.

The baby’s clothing is also important to consider. Choose natural cotton fibers and avoid synthetics. Synthetic fibers will actually melt and fuse to the skin under fire conditions.

Keep plastic toys outside the baby’s bedroom for this same reason. In general make certain that anything in the baby’s room is made of natural fiber or wood.

Install inter-connected smoke alarms with one in your baby’s room and one every else. The current fire code requires one working smoke alarm on each level of the home and one outside each sleeping area. However, there is no such thing as too many smoke alarms.

Have interconnected smoke alarms. That means that if one goes off they all go off. They make these in a wireless format now and they are CSA listed and inexpensive. This doubles the effectiveness of your safety plan.

I know this sounds mundane and repetitive but PRACTICE A HOME ESCAPE PLAN! Have two ways out of every room, have a plan about who mom is going to get and who dad is going to get, how you will get out and where you will meet in the event of a fire.

If bedrooms are on the second floor consider rope ladders as means of escape. Make sure your windows open to allow you to get out. Train your children to leave pets and toys and just get out.

Unless you live in an urban core you must realize this…… it will take the fire department seven minutes to arrive…… you have three minutes to get out.

Plan, plan, plan, practice, practice, practice. The key is early fire detection, a well planned escape route, a meeting place and a way to survive.
