I am a Mom of two children and one Great Dane, which some days feels like it equates to mother of 12 (apologies to anyone who actually has 12 children.)

This picture about sums up my days. Not so much the clean hair and eye-makeup, but the Cookie Monster medallion around my neck that made it through a whole day of errands before I remembered I had it on.

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.
