Meet the Cast: The Stoner Mom Family
It’s easy enough to find pictures of my family on any of our various social media platforms. Here on my website however, I tend to hold their precious identities pretty sacred.
But how can a reader get to know me if they don’t know my children? They mean everything to me, consume my thoughts and rule my days. Here I will introduce my loved ones.
My oldest. My oldest daughter falls squarely into the “first-born” category. Responsible, quiet, and highly intelligent, she spends her time with her nose in a book. The rest of the time she’s playing Minecraft or Terraria, constructing huge elaborate structures and then demonstrating their use. She is an independent girl in the sense that she does not rely on others for any reinforcement. She has a clear sense of right and wrong. She concerns herself with the feelings of others. An IQ test done at an early age for school placement was extremely impressive. Still though, she asks me to stay with her until she’s asleep. Of course precious girl. Every night.
My son– A month before I gave birth to my oldest, my husband was welcoming his first child into the world. Now my stepson, I find this boy remarkable. You must understand, I never, ever, envisioned myself with a son. I’ve known my entire life that I would have two girls. No boys for me, no way. And then the Universe gave me a HUGE boy! A LOUD boy. A boy so very much like his dad, whom I adore. A boy who dances, whose feet are so big I fit in his shoes. A boy who is so very handsome, a natural leader, charming and socially aware.
The BFF. Petite, slender, ice blonde, nordic skin, crystal eyes. We’ve been friends for around seven years. A fellow stoner mom who has been there through thin and thick, as I have for her. You know. I mean, she’s my emergency contact. It’s not Thanksgiving without her and her pie.
The Fur Babies
Guest appearances are made by the furbabies- Max and Katya, equally spoiled and confused about their identities. (Max thinks he’s a human who eats trash. Katya thinks she’s a dog.)
