I’m Janel. That’s a picture of me at a party. I don’t normally look that nice, so this is kind of false advertising, but it’s my blog, and my bio page, so LAY OFF.
I’m an academic librarian raising three beautiful little girls with my beardedly gifted husband. I write about surviving raising a princess, a spirited child, and the happiest redhead on Earth using as many curse words as possible. I should probably stress that last part. I curse a lot. Not necessarily in real life, but in my writing, which means I get people who find my blog by Googling “puke on dick” and my cousin that works in a military hospital can’t read my blog at work because the government thinks it’s porn and blocks it. I’m not sure either one of those things is necessarily bad, they’re just the facts of life when you can’t write a single post without using the word “fuck” at least three times.
Phaedra (8) is my oldest daughter, meaning she is basically the resident test subject when it comes to parenting. Bellatrix (6) is the middle child in every sense of that phrase, and is available for rental if you are interested in natural birth control. Surrey (3) is our oops surprise baby. She enjoys entertaining the entire family with her incredible dance moves, witty jokes, and insanely cute ways of pronouncing words. She’s your typical sassy redhead.
TL;DR: I’m weird. My husband’s weird. My kids are weird.
