Fun Facts

  • Before I had kids, I swore I’d never …

    Bribe them. Now that’s my most frequently used parenting tactic.

  • Proudest parenting moment:

    Convincing my children that the kitchen is a danger zone while I’m cooking dinner. Now Mama gets to drink wine in peace.

  • The last lie I told my kids:

    We will leave this beach if you are rude one more time. As if I’m going to leave the beach when I’m on vacation!
