As if she doesn’t have her hands full being a young mother to the adorable Bentley, Maci talks about how her other relationships generally take a turn for the worse: “[I love] not having to be anyone's mom but Bentley's. These guys [I've met and dated] are cool, and then three months into it, I'm like, 'You are a child and I'm your mother. You're grounded. Leave me alone.' The only mom I want to be is Bentley's mom.”
And if Bentley’s behavior is any indication, she’s doing a great job. “He gets gold stars every day. I'm so proud of him. They always write comments on why they get gold stars and normally it's because he'll clean up without being asked or follows all the rules. Besides that, for the past months all he's been doing is riding his bicycle or dirt bike. I can't get him off of it. I'm like, 'Can't we say your ABCs or something?’”
So for now, Maci is less focused on finding her next man-child and more focused on spending the holiday season with actual child, four-year-old Bentley. Step one: Set up the Elf on the Shelf. Step two: Good behavior for all.
