I'm a mother-blogger, but the purpose of this blog is not to share kid-whimsy; it's to blaze a trail through the wilderness on the other side of the cute stories - the land of grown-up kids, kids-in-law, and grandkids.
In that spirit, let me introduce the cast of characters:
McMama - me, AKA Mom, Ma, Yaya, Mo-therrr!
Dad - my husband of 30+ years, also called Papa for the purposes of this blog.
Eldest Kid (EK) - a thirty-something single daughter, product of my first marriage.
Middle Kid (MK) - a twenty-something married son.
Youngest Kid (YK) - a teen-aged daughter. Single. Of course.
Daughter-in-Law(DiL) - wife of Middle Kid. European, specifically (and typically) Irish.
Granddaughter (GD) - child of DiL and MK. Typical second-grader, will provide cuteness when required.
All rightie, then. On with the show.
