"Dawn Meehan (aka mom2my6pack) grew up in Chicagoland where she began her writing career at the age of 5 with her widely praised, The Lucky Leprechaun, an epic tale of a leprechaun who was– yes, you guessed it, lucky.
Dawn lives on the outskirts of Chicago with her six children, where she practices her juggling skills daily. On any given evening, Dawn can be found taking one child to cheerleading practice, dropping off another at church, making dinner, going to the grocery store, paying the bills, kissing a boo-boo, reading a bedtime story, cleaning up muddy footprints, folding laundry, taking a child to the ER, and explaining to her kids why they can’t have an indoor Slip ‘N Slide or a pet squirrel.
After Dawn auctioned a pack of Pokémon cards on eBay, she attracted the attention of nearly a hundred thousand readers in one day. Her blog, BecauseISaidSo.com, sky-rocketed to become one of the most popular mommy blogs on the net. In 2008, her blog was voted the Best Parenting Blog by the Blogger’s Choice Awards. It has been nominated for the Best Humor Blog, the Hottest Mommy Blogger, the Best Parenting Blog, and the Best Blog of All Time for the past three years. In 2009, her blog was nominated for the Funniest Blog by BlogLuxe, and Dawn was named one of the top thirty-five mommy bloggers by Babble. Her kids think the blog is just okay."
