You made it! Here it is... the blog where you get to sit back and laugh at - or be completely horrified by - life with 5 kids, 2 parents, 1 dog, 2 cats, 1 guinea pig, & 2 turtles (and those are just the creatures we know about).

About Me

I'm the crazy lady who had 5 kids in less than 7 years. Patrick is 11, Lucy is 10, Sophie is 8, Sean is 6 and Charlotte is 4. I'm often amazed when people ask me if they're all mine - they look like clones of each other. To add insult to injury, we also have a dog, 2 cats, 2 turtles and a guinea pig. In other words, the place is nuts. Please bring $0.25 for admission. An extra $0.25 if you want to pet or feed the children animals.

When I'm not wrangling my 87 5 children into shoes, clothes or car seats, I'm at my other job. I'm a full-time math teacher in an elementary school. This almost makes it possible to keep all of these kids in things like private school (and clothes and food).

In addition to my teaching job, I have a hobby in cake making. Friends and family sometimes hire me to make cakes for birthday parties and other celebrations. I almost always decorate these cakes in the middle of the night to avoid "help" from my children.

If you want to check out how the blog started, read It's All About the Tone... You can also get a feel for my daily life in Play-by-Play. And here's a little taste of exactly what a hot mess I really am in Tuesday's Tip (#9) - Underwear Edition (part 2). (Unfortunately, there had to be an Underwear Edition (part 1).)

A few other favorites are: I Could Never Be This Dedicated, X Games: Parenting Edition and WARNING.

And if you just want to get an idea of the nonsense that seems to only happen to me, check out And Then This Happened or Playing Possum Isn't Just A Saying, You Know.
