Blog2I am a stay-at-home mom to three active boys.  I am a referee, housekeeper, counselor, taxi driver, list-maker, and personal chef.  The majority of my time is spent in the kitchen trying new recipes and revising old favorites to be as healthy and wholesome as possible.  I love good books, strong coffee, and $10 wine.  If someone told me a decade ago I would be into potty humor, rely on Facebook for grown-up time, and drive a minivan, I would have sobbed uncontrollably.  These days, it’s just part of the job.

The Cast of Clowns

EatAbe, Age 7:  Abe is a rule follower.  He has been coloring in the lines since he was 2.  He talked early and often. He would be a near-model child if he would stop using corporal punishment to discipline his younger brothers.  He can be recognized on the street by his Mr. T-sized necklaces he creates on the Rainbow Loom.


DirtyGus, Age 4:  Gus is our daily alarm clock and resident Drama Queen.  He is a fast-talker, but still can’t pronounce his “L’s.”  He runs.  Everywhere.  And is responsible for the constantly changing graffiti on our walls, floors, and furniture.  He’ll either be a Rhodes Scholar or jailbird. It’s yet to be determined.


CleanBen, Age 4:  Ben is sensitive, kind, and quirky.  He is a physically-gifted, gentle giant.  He loves books, sports, and trains.  He gets along with everyone.  And he has a special fondness for processed foods and Japanese stink bugs.  I wish I was kidding.


LiveDad, Age 40ish:  Dave is my voice of reason and designated driver.  He is the bread winner, basketball coach, trash man, in-house comedian, and OCD-fueled guy who keeps our house organized and rodent-free.  I love him for so many reasons, not the least of which is his patience for my Loft and Amazon Prime addictions where I buy everything.  Seriously.  Everything. Except wine.
