Without these people, there’d be no blog.
Granted, without these people, I’d be gainfully employed outside of the house and would be interacting with real adults in real life (eg., Starbucks) instead of hovering over my laptop on the kitchen counter while slinging grilled cheese and washing chunky sour milk sippy cups… but anyhoo…
They are the source of my inspiration and my angst, depending on the moment and the mess. And I love them with every fiber of my being.
#1 (F) “The Drama Queen”:
Brainy, athletic, typical “first-born” with an awesome sense of humor, that accomplishes anything & everything she sets her mind to.
#2 (F) “The Arteest”:
Talented in all arts, our bohemian-dreamer, animal-loving girl with a heart of gold. Imagine a hilarious cartoon figure walking & talking… and you have #2. She and I spend waaay too much time crying in laughter over YouTube fail videos.
#3 (M) Formerly “THE Boy”:
Our kind big-hearted guy with dimples to die for, who loves video games, soccer, trumpet, & his little siblings. He’s patient and chill, and with four sisters, he NEEDS to be.
#4 (F) The “Irish Spitfire”:
The only one with curly golden hair (uh… huh? HOW?) Fiesty, stubborn, sweet and a total Mama’s girl. Loves drawing, soccer, and SUGAR.
#5 (F) “The Princess”:
A girly-girl to the max.. known for swiping any and all beauty accessories (including shoes) from sisters. Loves to sing, laugh, and is a TOTAL Daddy’s girl- loves her “Chicken Nugget” as she calls him (seriously).
#6 (M) “The Beast”:
The baby of the family, doted on by all five older siblings.. who are also afraid of him b/c he’s a Hulk in toddler form. 6 is mischievous, strong, beasty, clever, funny, & sweet.
I also share the chaos with The Captain, my beloved, photo-shy husband, and Mittens “Mitts”, our beloved cat:
