Location: Palm Beach County, Florida, United States

Recently have been told I look like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. I hadn't heard that in years, but that is a good place to start as to what I look like, although she had a better bod. I have three boys and have been married for 13 years. Born of a Navy family, in Hawaii, one Mom, one Dad, one sister and one brother. The eldest of three children. BS in Applied Mathematics. Consider Pensacola my home town although I moved every 2-3 years of my life growing up. Currently work in the aerospace industry in an engineering position while being a Mom. Of Celtic heritage and very proud of it.

Friday Afternoon through Saturday Morning

Saturday morning nearly killed me. My eldest had his best friend sleep over and they didn’t crash until 10:00. No kidding, they were up at 5:45 as in AM. I could hear the TV on. By 6:45 all the boys were awake and there was a full blown game of tag going on in my family room, complete with screaming and what sounded like leaping over furniture. I rolled over, looked at the clock and said to my husband, “You must be f---ing kidding me.” Needless to say, I was not nice when I appeared from my bedroom. I had every intention of getting them breakfast at 7:15 as we had to leave at 8 for a soccer game.

By 7, the game had resumed and finally we gave up and my husband went out and made them breakfast while finishing his marinara sauce.

It is not natural to awaken with so much energy before the sun comes up and then to start a combo game of hide and seek and tag. It is just.not.natural. They must’ve gotten that from my husband’s side of the family…
