What inspired you to start blogging?

Sh* was born in March 2010, the day after my 2 year-old son spilled a quart of black paint on our dining room rug. At first I was upset, but when I started to think about all of the items and aspects of my life/body my two boys had 'ruined' over just a few short years, I began to see great humor in it all. Blogging about this helps me appreciate the more frustrating aspects of parenthood and it keeps me mindful that laughter is dang therapeutic!

3. Helpful tips to prevent or handle all sorts of kid-destruction are welcome, but parenting critiques are not allowed.
