Just kick the toys out of the way and come on in! I’m known here online as Mom2My6Pack,  The Because I Said So Mom, or just That Crazy Lady with Six Kids. If those titles are too long for you, just call me Dawn:)

People keep telling me that there should be information about me on my web site, and well, all the cool kids are doing it, so here ya go. You can read more about me in my BIO .

You can read about our latest adventures–like the kids painting the walls with peanut butter, giving their siblings haircuts, and building rocket ships out of household appliances–on my BLOG .

To get your very own copy of my books, You’ll Lose the Baby Weight (and other lies about pregnancy and childbirth) or Because I Said So (and other tales from a less-than-perfect parent), check out my BOOKS page.

If that’s not enough, you can read my column over at BABBLE.

Take your time, look around and make sure to come back as I update my BLOG several times a week. Gotta go! Here come the kids, a squirrel, and… is that my toaster??

Make yourself at home and enjoy!

    • Tires 101 For Dummies
      I had the opportunity to visit the Cooper Tire & Vehicle Testing Center (CTVTC) in Texas last week and wow, did I learn A LOT in the couple days I was there! I feel a little stupid; I feel like I should have already known these things, but I'm pretty sure I'm not the only […]
    • Legally Blonde on Netflix
      Now on Netflix: Legally Blonde! I love Reese Witherspoon and I enjoy this movie, but I think it's especially cool because I met the writer, Kiwi Smith a few years ago when I was in Hollywood for the Glamour Reel Moments movie premiere. Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon) is Miss Popularity. She's the president of her sorority, […]
    • 12 Photos I Guarantee No Other Parent Has on Their Phone
      I was looking through the pictures on my phone the other day when I came to the conclusion that my kids are nuts. I think all parents probably feel this way at some point. (At least that’s the theory I’m going with here.) But my kids specifically? I just don’t know what goes through their […]
