I’m a very scatter-brained individual, trying to reconcile my many faces: wife, mother, foodie, cynic, etc. I’m also not sure if I want anyone to read this, but since some of my friends know about it, I guess that’s impossible. So here are some more specifics:
– I’m in my late ’20s, and I have two children under the age of 3. I also have a funny, strange, albeit supportive husband who was chosen by God to put up with my roller coaster of moods and general inclination toward extremes.
– I have two “jobs,” but I do them both from home. One is babysitting, and the other involves writing and editing. You can see my monthly food column in the online edition of the Paulding Family Times. We’re hoping to phase out my working eventually (like, in a year or so) since being a mom is a pretty hard job already.
– If you’re wondering what all the dairy-free fuss is about, well, I’m not against dairy products. I love dairy products and use them often. My daughter, however, has a severe (read: anaphylactic) reaction to any and all cow-derived milk products, which sucks more for me more than it does for her. You see, since she’s never had dairy, she doesn’t know what she’s missing, and as a result of this HUGE gap in possible foods she can eat, she’ll subsequently eat just about anything else.
– If you’re wondering why Mom Must Write, then you should know that the only thing that restores sanity to Mom is writing, and a close second is dark chocolate. I find that I’m a better person when I have time to reflect, and thankfully, my family understands this. Well, maybe the Husband is the only one who understands, since he enjoys writing, too.
– I have many other interests, most of which you’ll discover in this blog. If you want to contact me for any reason, send mail to domestipunk [at] gmail [dot] com. Feel free to follow me on Twitter, as well, if you’re looking for a more intimate glimpse into my scattered brain. Thanks for visiting!
