Andi’s Tips for Single Moms   

Andi laughed in my ear when I ask her about tips for single moms, but once I got her started, she didn’t hesitate to give me her list, starting with:  

  • Luck out and have a good ex-husband.  

Miles is as close to Brooke as Andi is and they share their daughter with few wrinkles or angry moments. (You may remember, Miles Jenkins, the hero of Girl in the Spotlight. I always knew Andi had needed a story of her own.) Andi and Miles may not have been right each other, but they show us they’re the right parents for Brooke.  

  • Now and again you may need to hide your feelings—especially envy.  

When Andi moves to Two Moon Bay, she hasn’t landed new job and she’s mismanaged the timing of the move so she and Brooke have no place to live. Meanwhile, Miles is now happily married to Lark and living his brand new house on the shore. Brooke is off on a trip to Chicago with Miles and Lark—a fun time of Ferris wheels and ice cream cones. Could be Andi’s a little envious. She can’t give Brooke those things, not right now. 

  •  Make your own friends. 

It bothers Andi to realize she left behind very little when she moves to Two Moon Bay. Her life had been devoted to Brooke and to her job as manger of a medical practice. What about friends? Too busy to make them, she claims. She’s vowed never to date again, so where does that leave her. Alone. She didn’t notice what was missing until she moves to the town where the only person she knows is her ex-husband. She needs a life of her own. 

  • Quit calling everything an adventure! 

When Andi can’t find a place to live, she pretends she and Brooke will have a great adventure living on a boat. Nice try. But Brooke is ten, not five, and all she sees is peeling varnish and buckets catching the rain coming through the leaky portholes and cabin top. Calling this an adventure is not going to cut it.  

  • Revel in the good times 

In the midst of a career crisis, adjusting to a new town, and dealing with a ations that haunt her, Andi also meets Zeke and his dad, Art, and their dog, Teddy. Brooke becomes smitten with the dog, and Art is like a new grandpa. Turns out Zeke needs Andi and Brooke as much as they need him. Add a horse named Maple to the mix, and the “homeless,” jobless summer turns out to be one of Brooke and Andi’s best.
