Who? me?

I’m a mom and a wife and a girl and sometimes a lady.  I was born in 1976.  I have a fondness for all things 80s and have just started the gentle slide in to “the middle years.”

My oldest daughter was born in 2005.  I am raising a tiny version of myself and it is every bit as trying as you’d think.   But she is rad.  She is way funnier than you or me or your funniest friend.  This is saying a lot.  Because I find myself highly amusing.

My husband was born in 1983.  He has one more year to be my trophy husband, sitting back and relying on his youth and good looks and then will be the big 3-0.

I fell in love with a boy in a vulgar t-shirt drinking PBR and he became a man in a suit who owns a house before my very eyes. When he thinks something is really out of this world great he says it is “good.”  So when I say he is “good” I mean he blows my mind every day.

Our little Lucy was born in January of 2012.  She reminds me every day that life is short.  And joyous.  And filled with shit and vomit and somehow it is beautiful.

We have a pretty damn good time in my family.  We laugh a lot.  We cry and yell and laugh some more.

Thanks for stopping by,  if you’d like to see more, “like” my facebook page for some added nonsense that never makes it to this page.

Taste better than a t-bone steak
Excitement on the side
If we don’t find some place to get off
Gonna lose it on the ride

Well you and me baby, go hand in hand
Like a bowlegged woman, and a knock-kneed man

Well you and me baby, go hand in hand
Like a bowlegged woman, and a knock-kneed man

  21. Hello there, I can’t really remember how I landed on your blog, but I’m glad I did. It’s funny how our paths followed somewhat parallel tracks for a while. Glad you get to be a “boring” happily married mum, while I get to be the haggard working single mum of two though ;). At least one of us got it right :).
    Greetings all the way from France

    • :) It is “Four is a Family.” That is how we bumped in to one another. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. I never imagined that I’d get a do-over. Yet, here I am. In the meantime, I daresay the wine is better in France!!

      • Aah, yes, Four is a family!
        And sure, the wine is better here, so I obviously got the better deal hands down ;).
        Take care of yourself, and your lovely brood x
