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.
