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!

    • Words With Friends (With A Side Of Nausea)
      When I was in kindergarten, there was a book fair at my school. I, being the huge dork that I am, begged my mom to buy me a dictionary. A dictionary. Just what every 5 year old asks for, right? Well, my mom said no at the time and I accepted that. She was proud […]
    • Back In My Day . . .
      Codi (Austin's girlfriend of 5 years who is expecting in October) texted me today, asking if I'd like to go with her to a baby store. Heck yeah! So I picked her up and we hit Babies R Us. I haven't been in a Babies R Us in years, but believe me, I put in […]
    • How To Talk To Teens (It CAN Be Done!)
      I think communication is essential especially when it comes to your tweens and teens. It's ever so important to keep those lines of communication open.  I want to know what's going on in my kids' lives.  I want them to feel comfortable coming to me with their problems, joys, concerns, and questions.  But, let's face […]
    • The One Where I Throw Up at CVS
      I awoke in the middle of the night with what I thought was horrible heartburn/indigestion. In a sleepy haze, I grabbed a couple Tums, turned over and promptly went back to sleep. When I woke up in the morning, I still felt crappy and now had pain in my lower abdomen. Well crap, this can't […]
