mom of two children
and Mr. G (Guapo The Pug)
and a bunch of formers: former physical therapist, former middle-school English teacher, and former in-control, sane person.
Married to Mr. Parenting on the Loose (Mr. POTL): a funny, patient, very calm man who keeps us stable and laughing.
Trying to parent “on the loose” (Lil’ Miss M’s words) as opposed to like a crazed office manager. Somedays succeeding, many days failing.
Things that make me happy:
coffee (strong), wine, sparkles, books, pens, cards (greeting, not playing), practical jokes, mojitos, hip hop, flip flops, pillows, pinatas, and sea creatures (except jellyfish)
Things that make me stressed:
jellyfish, 4:00 p.m., dinnertime
