In which I introduce myself

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.

Looking forward to it. Pleased to meet you. Let me introduce myself to you -

I'm BG - I have three kids in their 20s, the middle one a divorced daughter with a four year old daughter of her own - the one I retired young to help raise and actually have time to enjoy. It's true - I woulda had her first if I had known how much fun she was gonna be.

I love that I found you at the beginning of your blog! It is especially cool that I discovered you the week after I had a few days with my oldest, dearest, raised-our-kids-together friend, after 14 years! Seeing her brought that part of me that is and ever shall be central to my makeup - the role of Mo-therrr!

Blue Girl, you thrill me to my toes!
And you're right about grandkids. They make all the motherstuff worth it.
