Mike: The husband. Lover of music, taking pictures of his food, NPR, and his family. Not in that particular order.
Little Man: Son #1. 13. Lover of Xbox, Modern Warfare, and food. In that order.
Mini-Me: Daughter #1. 10 going on 16. Lover of snacks, TV, cutting up her clothes to make Barbie outfits, and talking back.
Gummy Bear: Daughter #2. 4 months. Lover of bottles, eating her hands, drooling, and My Sherona.
The Enforcer: Son #2. 15. Lives in Utah with his mom. Lover of books, taking over the world, and making sure people (all people) follow what he believes should be “the rules”.
The Apparition: Son #3. Nearly 20. Lives in Utah with his girlfriend, who has already given herself his last name on Facebook. We’ll call her Lunatic (I’ve never actually met her). Lover of his girlfriend, music, randomly stating that he is giving up social media, and not calling his father. I’m beginning to believe that he may be a figment of my imagination.
Tattooed and Organic: My younger sister. She’ll get mentioned more if she decides to stop living in her own little world in California. Maybe.
My mom: Duh. She moved here, single, two years ago to be closer to her grandkids. She ended up with a nice job, a nice son-in-law, 3 new grandkids, and finally – a nice new husband.
