In this episode I elaborate on my mantra that you should not be ashamed to be a mom and date at the same time -- and there is nothing wrong with your kids meeting a date or love interest, even if it's a first date or early in a relationship.

I share a recent experience in which for three consecutive weekends my kids and I happened to hang out with straight men. Two of them are platonic friends, the third a lover. When the latter -- who I had only recently met -- suggested we hang out with the kids I had a mini panic attack. Wow, he seemed serious! But my real fear was that he would be awesome with my kids - and I would have feelings for him and be at risk of getting hurt.

The caller, Kelley, called my story a cliffhanger! Listen in to hear how it played out -- and hear how I help Kelley navigate a gambling addict (aka "day trader") husband who is bankrupting the family.
