The Crazy Mom and Looney Family
As the years pass, I find that I’m continually redefining myself. First I was an artist. A graphic designer. Wife then mother. Author. Illustrator. These days, I just call it like I see it… I am the Crazy Mom with Kids!
On this official crazymomwithkids.com blog site, I proudly wear my craziness as a badge of honor. As a woman juggling motherhood, a husband, a household, and a creative career, how could my sanity not be on the line daily?
Yet, I’m determined to give 100 percent to each area of my life, which is likely the reason I’m only partly sane.
But I wouldn’t be a crazy mom without the help of some very special people: my family. Not only do they go out of their way to test my patience every day, but if it weren’t for them, I would have absolutely no material for my blog.
My two girls…
Ms. Prissy aka, my 6-year-old daughter, is a textbook girlie girl. She’s a budding artist and true sweetheart who would rather eat salad than anything with flesh. With much jubilation, this chick joined the knitting club at her school.
My youngest child, soon to be 4-year-old daughter, is a tough-talking chickenhawk who thinks she runs the show. She’s a diminutive powerhouse who loves to be “it” when she plays tag. Her favorite food is chicken skin.
My two boys…
My husband, is the alpha rooster in this wild hen house. Though he is the biggest and strongest of us all, his little chicks ruffle his feathers and truly run the barnyard.
Egg-head, Jr, my 18-year-old stepson, flew from the coop a little while ago. But all of the barn look forward to his visits. And like his persona, this quiet thinker is always two steps a head of the entire roost.
Now that you’ve met my cast of characters and their alter-egos, prepare to read more about their adventures and their quest to make me even crazier during 2012.
I love these blogs. I thought I was the only crazy mom. You have inspired me to write a blog (but u know I’m too lazy to start -lol). If I did my characters would be from Marvel/DC Comics- Mr. Fantastic (my 10 yr old who knows how To b clever), The Hulk (my 7 yr old who once transforms is a force to be dealt with), Blk Canary (my 4 yr old who keeps tlkn & loud pitch makes u def) & Professor X (my hubby who keeps us all under control) lol… hmm I may need you to draw this for us. Smile
Lol, you make me wanna write! Glad to know I’m not the only one with a crazy bunch!
I look forward to future stories about Foghorn’s ruffled feathers! lol!
As a crazy mom myself, I can totally relate. I love reading your blogs, they help me feel less crazy, if that is even possible. Keep up the good work. Super Moms Unite!
My Dear Friend it is so nice to read your blog. Any time I see you have something new I try to have a few quiet minutes to enjoy it and laugh out loud without having to explain to anybody what is so funny about what I am reading ( you know my house is always full of little ones always asking me questions). I am looking forward to see you soon. I have to give you a call!!!! I need some copies of your book for my kids. I think it will be a great book to review and give as a present for February. Love you so much guys.
Calida – I love it!! You really did call it like you saw it and how correct you are. Looking forward to more.
Very cute and funny Calida, glad to know I am not alone in having a ‘Looney’ Family! A real cast of characters, but of course, we wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m wondering which character you are. Your silent on that one.
I’m the crazy mom! But in this Looney world I maybe Porky Pig or Bugs? Anyway… glad you read.
