True Love

by singlemomseeking on March 27, 2009

I’m blessed to be among the single mom bloggers who received this email yesterday that begin with:


It was from Mommy Pie, one of the funniest bloggers out there, who has turned quite serious lately.

Here’s what happened:

About three months ago, she and this “very cute boy” whom she’d known in high school reconnected on Facebook. In no time at all, they were emailing IMing, texting — and having seven-hour phone calls.

“Nevermind that we live on opposite ends of the country,” explained Mommy Pie. “Nevermind that inexplicably, I feel like I’ve known this boy forever. This has to be one of the craziest things that’s ever happened to me, and it’s got me a little discomboobulated, to be sure.”

Then, however, as she puts it:

“I committed a Cardinal Sin. I told him about the blog. Which means he knows about the fart lighting. And my Taco Drive-Thru Guy. And the peeing in the shower. And the Granny Panties.

Good God, the Granny Panties.”

And guess what?

This boy fell in love with her, blog and all.

He came to visit and bonded with the whole family, parents and all. He even took over Mommy Pie’s blog one day.

Which brings me to yesterday, and that email in my box that began with:

“Hey my lovely fellow single mamas… Didn’t know if you saw what went down yesterday in the Blogosphere, but I’m busting and wanted to tell you!

If you haven’t yet heard what went down, read here. Now.

“It’s completely impetuous, but so completely right,” Mommy Pie adds.

Really now, if you don’t have goose bumps like me, something is wrong with you.

Much love to all of you, Mommy Pie, MP, and Mr. Pie (yes, that’s the hunk, above!)

And to Robynbeth, something good IS waiting … destiny.

This truly gives me hope that something good is waiting for all of us.

This was such a great story. Thanks for sharing, and inspiring the many single moms who may have given up hope or thought love the 2nd time around wasn’t possible. He is a hunk and they are adorable together!


Hanie March 28, 2009 at 6:55 am

How adorable can a guy gets?? He sounds like a great guy and good looking too. All the best to them 😉

I don’t read MommyPies blog but I might start. The Boy seems like a great catch. Gives single moms (okay, ME!) Hope. I’ve all but given up before I even started [looking].


Lindsay March 27, 2009 at 5:51 pm

Wow, this is the sweetest story ever and he’s a hunk! Totally unique and different. Something like this should be on the news, lol.

I’m not a blogger, but I am “The Boy”. Mommypie sent me an email with a link to this sight.

I’m rattling the bars on the cage trying to get out of here and spend everywakinghour with Mommypie who is still all-the-freaking-way-across-the-country. What kind of lucky boy gets to marry a girl who pees in the shower and has actually tried to light a fart? I mean … come on! Who is better than her! (Not to mention she is beautiful, smart, well read, well adjusted, and a great Mommy!)

If you think Yah for Mommypie, you should be standing on your head, making silly faces and yelling out loud for me. Cause I am the luckiest “The boy” in the whole wide worldiverse.

Thank you all for the sweet comments. My ego is now firmly out of control.

The Boy. (David)

I’m so unbelievably flattered that the Actual, Living “Boy” has commented on my blog. Wow, you are the real thing. That Mommy Pie has got it good. Mmmmm.

Clearly, the Mommies here agree!

And single dads out there, what do you think of this love story? You’re kind of quiet today, I must say.


BlueBella March 27, 2009 at 8:22 am

Yay for Mommy Pie!

What a great way to round up the week in the blogosphere!

Just like you Rachel, I’m moved. Really moved. I love when the boy takes the initiative to do something creative and fulfill our fantasies and show that they really KNOW us. The Boy did that. I wish that for every single mama out there.


T March 27, 2009 at 6:00 am

Nope. I’m not surprised at all. I can completely relate to this story… and, um… I’m totally jealous.

I wish her the absolute best. She deserves it.
