Just grab a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine,) scoot the pile of unfolded laundry over, and have a seat. I’m known here online as Mom2My6Pack. It’s not because I have 6-pack abs (Hooo hooo hee hee hee, I just pulled my abs laughing at that one!) It’s not because I like beer either. It’s because I have 6 kids. What can I say? It seemed like a good idea at the time.

People keep telling me there should be information about me on my website, 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 my attempt to date (it isn’t pretty), and how my kids have to repeatedly save me from the Buick-sized bugs down here. You can search my archives for older stories of 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.

Take your time, look around and make sure to come back as I update my BLOG a couple times a week. Gotta go! I’m trying to invent a teleportation device, make a coffee IV, and teach my children how to replace the empty toilet paper roll. It’s a time consuming job!

Make yourself at home and enjoy!

It looked like this:See where it asks for "generation (i.e. JR, II)?" When Lexi filled it out, she wrote "JR II" in that box, thinking […]
    • Thanks For The Memories!
      On Friday, June 29, 2007 I wrote my first blog post. It's been ten years. TEN YEARS of blogging! I've written 1692 blog posts. A lot has changed in that time. When I first started, I was a stay-at-home mom to 6 young kids who liked to paint the TV with yogurt, color the dog […]
    • A Heaping Helping Of Spam
      I love getting comments on my blog. Wait, let me rephrase that. I love getting comments from actual people who actually read my blog, and who leave comments that pertain to said blog. I'm less fond of the spam comments I receive. And the spam comments are plentiful! For every legit comment, I probably get […]
    • You Are Not Alone
      Startled out of sleep by a loud noise, I sat up in bed, my heart pounding. A persistent knocking at my front door had thoughts racing through my head. Everyone was home asleep. Who could be knocking in the middle of the night? What's going on? I climbed out of bed and crept toward the […]
