"There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot." (Aldo Leopold) Apparently, I cannot.


People have told me I could write a book about all the funny, strange, disgusting, and downright weird things my kids do, but I’m an immediate-results (read: I need what I want when I want it) kind of person–plus I’m a type A personality all the way and can’t fathom the idea of giving up any sort of control–so I started this blog. If I’m being completely honest, I think writing a book would have been easier. πŸ™‚

Raising Wild Things is about the hilarity (and sometimes missteps) of raising young children. There is, however, no manual to do this. Parenting is a learn-as-you-go, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants, pretend-you-know-what-you’re-doing-even-when-you-(certainly almost 100% of the time)-don’t kind of job. Anyone who tells you different is lying. Or a robot.
