The Egregious Improprieties of Judge Gorcyca of Oakland County Family Court

On June 24th, three children were taken out of Judge Lisa Gorcyca’s courtroom in handcuffs to be kept at Mandy’s Place, a detention facility for criminal and abused children. They were detained for weeks. The Judge told the children that they would be peeing in front of others, that they would be kept apart from their siblings and not able to see their mom. The Judge told them that they could expect to attend school there and incarcerated until they were 18.

Ten Embarrassing Quirks About Me

image

We all have them, embarrassing little quirks that while may not be socially acceptable, are a part of our every day lives. I’ve decided to share mine in an attempt to make you all feel better about yourselves.

1.  I always buy an extra box of Peanut Butter Tastey Kakes when grocery shopping.  I then proceeded to hide them from the children.  Once I finish my stash, I usually eat the rest of their box as well.  I also lecture the kids about the importance of choosing healthy snacks, with a straight face.

2.  I procrastinate.  I am fully aware that doing a little each day is the smart way to complete any task.  However, I will wait until the last possible second to do everything.  I then yell out how I wish there were more hours in a day.  More hours to procrastinate that is.

3.  I’m silly.  I often burst out into song and dance throughout the day.  I’m not good at either.  But even the baby laughs, so I must be doing something right.

4.  I refuse to sort socks.  I sometimes wear socks that don’t match, as do my kids.  I see nothing wrong with this.

5.  I hate homework.  I hated it when I was in school and I hate it even more now that I have school aged children.  I feel like our evenings are consumed by it.  And since I teach my kids that it is bad to procrastinate it’s the one area I cannot procrastinate.  I hate being such a good role model.

6.  I love naps.  Not that I ever actually get them, but I often daydream about what it would be like to get a nap in every day! Pure heaven.

7.  I have un-managed Adult ADHD.  Yea embarrassing.  I plan on getting help with it just as soon as I find a home, job, ect.

8. I do not eat condiments (except ketchup) no mayo, mustard, salad dressing, dip. I know really strange. Thankfully none of my kids have inherited picky eating. Don’t you just hate that?

9. When I had a car, I would sneak through the Drive through before picking my kids up from school. Dollar menu baby. My kids do not eat that poison…but mom sure likes it!

10. The last embarrassing thing about me, which I have just learned while writing this list, I’m a huge hypocrite! Sorry, I just want what we all want, better for my kids.

Now who wants to make me feel better about myself? Please share your embarrassing quirks below.

Dating a SINGLE Dad, Thoughts to Ponder

image

I remember back in my prime, before meeting my (soon to be EX) husband saying “I will never date a man with a child”.  I meant it, if I was even remotely attracted to a man and after talking, I found out he had a child, a huge STOP sign would appear before my eyes.  Poof, just like that, no longer attractive to me.  I always figured, where there’s a child, standing closely behind is that baby’s mother.  Never wanted to deal with that.  I also did not want to be number 2 or possibly 3 in any relationship.  That was then, fast forward twelve years, one failed marriage, and three lovely children of my own later, my thoughts have changed.

When I say my thoughts have changed, I’m only suggesting this if you already have children of your own.  If you are childless and dating, I still feel a childless man would be best.  Not that it’s impossible to have a relationship with a man with children, but it’s a lot more challenging.  And if you’re the type of person who needs to be number 1, forget it.  Why would any woman want a man who puts their kids on the backburner?  If they are a good man, they are still providing for their kids, so you can forget last minute romantic getaways, expensive dinners and uninterrupted time.

I now realize if I were to try to date a man without children, he would constantly be disappointed.  Many times both myself and the kids think they are going to be spending the night with their dad, and “something comes up”.  Usually when we have something fun planned.  A man without children would get sick and tired of this, I know I do.  Kids get sick, babysitters cancel, and I need a man who is secure knowing he’s number 4 in my life.  A man who deals with the same struggles of co-parenting or lack of co parenting. I like the fact that he already knows how to act around kids, no need to train him.  I love that when our date nights don’t go as planned, Chuckie Cheese is a perfect alternative.  Being that both of our schedules are jammed packed with children’s activities, we don’t get to spend too much time alone.  Therefore, when we do get alone time,  it is exciting and fun.  We appreciate each other and both know how hard it is to be the primary parent.  We can both talk about our kids without being annoying.  On top of all those pros, a man who is a great father is a huge turn-on.

So there you have it, the reasons you should date a man with a child.  Now please don’t take this the wrong way!  Do not date a married man with children!  (No matter how horrible his wife at home is ;))  If he doesn’t have a job, yet has a child, not a good sign.  I’m not telling you to find a man who has kids but does not support them financially and emotionally.  Because ladies, listen carefully, if he doesn’t support his children he is not a good person trust me on this one.  He certainly won’t be contributing much to you or your relationship.  There are a handful of really good single dads out there.  When you find one, grab him.  You may just find you have a lot in common.  If it gets serious, your kids can enjoy each other, and you never know you might just end up in a “Brady Bunch” type of situation.  Please share your dating experiences, the good, the bad and the funny by commenting below.
