Ultimate Blog Party and More about Me!

5minutesformom.com is hosting an Ultimate Blog Party and I thought I'd give it a try.  The official party post is here.  If you are a fellow blogger, you'll want to check it out!

 Welcome to Tales of an Unlikely Mother!  I'm a 28-year-old former television news producer, who now stays at home with my two-year-old twin girls. They teach me hundreds of lessons every day.



Here you'll find essays from the trenches of parenting from a woman who's definitely not up for cookie-cutter parent of the year.  We do our best, though.

I started this blog because I read something on the internet that made me mad.  Here it is.

Since then I've talked about rude people in the library, in the salon and at a restaurant. (Okay, so she was actually just trying to be friendly, but we're not all perfect all the time.)  I've taken on childfree writers, facebook memes, and comedians.  I've reviewed some God-awful potties, and failed at making Cream of Wheat.  Before that, I formula fed, do you judge me?  They don't.


Or maybe you're just here for some cute videos of twins kissing, rocking out on the potty to They Might Be Giants, playing baseball, or dancing their hearts out!

Anyway, it's really great to meet you!  If you're here from UBP11, comment and let me know!
