Thank you to Love Protection for granting me this honor! I would also like to thank the little people who have helped me along the way: the Smurfs, Tinkerbell, and Dobby the house elf.

I would also like to show my appreciation for the still small, but slightly larger people, AJ & JC, to whom I can credit the necessity of of this blog in the first place. Without them, I would not have half of the stories, nor most of the pictures with which I am able to draft my tales for your perusal. Or, in other words, they do all the funny crap. I’m just a witness with a keyboard.

I would also like to mention my wonderful husband, Tom, without whom I would have had a very hard time trying to reproduce…which would have led to lack of writing subjects… Not that it’s the only reason I keep him around. He also cooks.

The road has been long, but worthwhile; the Nutella fattening, but addictive; the yoga pants stretchy and forgiving; the vodka strong, but free flowing. And as I continue down this path of “Mommy! Mum! Mama! Mommy! Ma! I need you!”, I often think, “Where would I be if not for my family?” The answer: taking long baths, reading a book, peeing alone (click for a great book by some wonderful moms), taking a nap…

But it’s all worth it. My men are my life. Get your mind out of the gutter, I meant husband, kids and dog – all boys. Maybe I should get a she-cat or three to balance it out…except I’m terrified of cats…Oh yeah, they are my life, and I couldn’t ask for a better family.  I could ask for a better tasting diet chocolate, but that’s my own fault for eating so many jars of Nutella. That shit should really come with a warning.

And so I leave you with a thought from the late, great George Carlin:

The very existence of flamethrowers proves that sometime, somewhere, someone said to themselves, “You know, I want to set those people over there on fire, but I’m just not close enough to get the job done.”
