I am a Mom of four children, one Great Dane and a French Bulldog puppy, which some days feels like it equates to mother of 12 (apologies to anyone who actually has 12 children.) I used to write all the time. Then I had kids, and now all I want to do at the end of the day is put on (er...stay in) my sweats and watch mindless T.V. But I'm afraid if I don't start using my brain for anything besides bedtime stories and potty-time songs, the useful parts of it will start to atrophy. So here I am! Making a conscious effort to find -- and share -- the humor in parenting ... because I'm too young to go crazy just yet.
