I turned down national TV today

As I explain at BabyCenter today, I almost flew to New York City last night.

The Mike and Juliet Show on Fox TV emailed me yesterday: “We are doing a segment on single moms and would love to have you on as our expert. ”

But M had come down with a virus; she was out of school with a 102 fever. The Mama Bear in me roared louder than the Adventurer. I wasn’t going. I even asked if they could send a cute TV cameraman to my place, to get a real look at a single mom who’d love to go out — but can’t. (Okay, I’m fibbing about the “cute” bit, I just asked if they might tape long-distance, but no.)

Fortunately, The Mike and Juliet Show found Morgan over at iheartsingleparents.com, and she eagerly dashed off to the airport.

Unfortunately, her plane was delayed and she didn’t make it on the show. (Hey, Morgan, let’s see if The Mike and Juliet Show might invite us back this summer, what do you say?)

I have a huge favor to ask you, single moms and dads. When you have a moment, would you please answer my poll at BabyCenter.com today?

Tell us why you’re dating.

Oh Dads, although I address that post to moms (because very few dads seem to lurk at BabyCenter!), I want your vote, too!

Thank goodness that Dr. Leah Klungness was in upstate New York — and she made it on the show. The coauthor of the The Complete Single Mother: Reassuring Answers to Your Most Challenging Concerns, urges you — single parents — to get out there and have fun.

You can watch the segment — about single moms looking for love! — here.
