Come and meet the stars of the show:
The Mom: Michelle
Mother, wife, blogger, runner, crafter, baker, compulsive organizer and very novice photographer. Just a girl from a small Massachusetts town that once lived in the dirty deserts of Arizona, and now lives and loves in Eastern Pennsylvania. Lover of the beach, seasons, fall, boots, scarves and wine. Former 1st grade teacher and graduate of the University of Arizona. Married to The Dad for almost 8 years. This mom loves sharing her hilarious and no-nonsense outlook on motherhood…along with some recipes, crafts and workouts along the way. Pour yourself a glass of wine (or two) and stay awhile!
The Dad: David (aka: Mr. Pea or “The Legend”)
Dad, hubby, restaurateur, golfer, lover of sleeping in. This hard working guy is the one who allows Mom to have the ability to stay home, blog and drink wine. He is the best, most hard-working guy around. When he has some time off, he loves to golf, watch golf or take the peas for a bike ride. He is Mom’s ying to her yang and also is an excellent teammate on such events as The Tough Mudder. He is a natural athlete and the smartest guy Mom knows. Tucson born and bred, he is the original “desert rat”. Greatly dislikes doing yard work and wearing sunblock.
Pea #1- the original pea
Oldest kid, big sister, drawer, crafter, reader, soccer player, and excellent swimmer. This 10 year old 4th grader is one amazing girl. Always willing to help out a friend and sibling (unless of course, she isn’t in the mood to). Super smart and reading much above her grade level- which makes mommy and daddy very proud! She is also the most dramatic and moody kid I know and is a true worry-wart. She is an excellent leader and very independent (read: bossy and stubborn, kind of like her mom) and turning into quite the little soccer star. She will grow up and change the world with her caring and loving heart…and also probably own 21 dogs.
Pea #2- the middle pea
2nd grader, baseball player, soccer player and lover of baseball, Minecraft, and Legos. This boy is a sweetie who excels at puzzles, block building and creating his own Wall-e’s out of empty boxes, tape and toilet paper tubes. Is is the most Macgyver of all the peas. Claims he wants to live with me forever (which I’ll gladly allow) and will certainly grow up to be some sort of engineer. He is also a professional whiner* and cheese eater. (*note: not the same kind of wine that mom likes)
Pea #3- the baby pea
The most defiant of all the peas, she gives mom a run for her money. This pea will not be as good as a listener as pea #1, she will fight mom to the end. She loves My Little Pony, Lalaloopsey, Minnie Mouse and Blue’s Clues. She cannot stand listening or being forced to do what she is told. Truly her own woman. This kindergartner is destined to amaze and take the world by storm. Mom and Dad will also probably have to bolt her windows shut when she is a teenager. True sweetie pie and loves all things blue (or pink or orange- depending on her mood!)
