Six Pack Mom is a parenting blog that details the amusing anecdotes of daily life with a large family.
The goal: to tell you about the insane shenanigans that I face daily so you can leave feeling much better about your own life. Parenting is one of the most challenging endeavors we can take on, & there’s a sense of comfort & comradery when we can bond over our triumphs, tribulations, and FLAT-OUT FAILS.
Six Pack Mom’s life plan was to travel the world as a single, mad professor with too many cats, too many books, and no kids.
Definitely no kids.
God has a sense of humor, however; because Six Pack Mom’s life plan changed- she’s now married to (the love of her life) The Captain, and spends every waking moment with her six (Six. SIX!) loud and loveable kids, unless she’s hiding in the bathroom from them- which is where her only reading time occurs in the form of kids’ notes slid under the door.
She limits her travel to the local Stop & Shop, or any drive-thru serving caffeine. There is only one cat; she is louder and pickier than the children, but at least she doesn’t draw on the walls. There are also two gerbils, who were ignored by Six Pack until she spent two hours digging under furniture for them. And worrying about their possible overdose… on children’s vitamins.
She may maintain the facade of a mature, responsible suburban housewife & mother, but deep down, Six Pack Mom is an overgrown teenager who still loves:
Ghostbusters, New York, Jesus, Trivial Pursuit, cats, Superman, Rocky, faking accents in public, pizza, Star Wars, comfy jeans and T shirts, playing sports, laughter, Nine Inch Nails, celebrity gossip, coffee, Psalm 121, tacos, air-guitaring, books, inside jokes with age-old friends, the ’86 Mets, babies (obviously), & pranking those she loves most.
