No problem, I can still be a geek + a mom

I take great comfort in the fact that I don’t have to leave all my geekiness behind when I take on the role of mom. Just because every other segment of my life is sure to be turned upside down I don’t have to become the traditional soccer mom that wears a jumper with apple…

Its all in the name

So I was born Amy (A-M-Y). Most people don’t even know that since I have chosen to write my name as A-M-I from about the sixth grade on. Ironically, it was a suggestion from my mom. She decided that we all should switch our names to end with an “i” in order to be different….

Introducing… Peanut

I know it doesn’t look like much and at this point but it’s been confirmed that we would soon no longer be just two (not counting all the animals) in our family. JJ calls it “peanut,” (hopefully this nickname doesn’t stick but it does seem fitting at this point looking at the images) and even…
