Uplifting and comical…a look at my life, motherhood and the circus that goes with it


When I was4 years old, I called myself “I yaya”.I said it with conviction and with heart because I believed in me.  I am 32 years old, mother of 3, My 8 year old daughter who I reference as my co-parent when my husband is traveling, my 5 year old shopaholic/infomercial junkie daughter and my almost 3 year old F-5 tornado son who destroys everything with so many kisses.  I am a wife to a hardworking, devoted man who entered my life and willingly accepted not only my craziness, but my 3 year old and my 6 month old. (and they say there arent any goout there.

Our lives are crazy hectic and whether I’m apologizing for my son singing Justin Beiber at high volumes in Giant Eagle or smiling at the stranger awaiting me to discipline my tantrum stricken little ducklings, I never apologize for being me.  After all, I embrace the chaos, otherwise, I would be crying and I am not a pretty crier.

I love my big family and wouldnt change the drama, sweat or tears just to avoid taking up the entire corridor in just about every public facility possible.  We roll deep and if you don’t accept one, then you accept none, but we are okay with that too.

Be true, be you.

    remember this, many have gone before you and “lived” to tell about it lol…

Honey Did you See That?

I retired at 50 something, returned to North America and began blogging. All posts are 100% true, except when they're not funny enough, or when I can't remember the details. Menopause is heartless. Huge thanks to my comic book writing son, Matt, my Header designer.

Peas and Cougars

If real life were a cartoon, I would be a triangle, which is probably better than being a square.
