I'm both a biological and step mom, co-parenting a family with SEVEN kids (insert Brady Bunch joke here), five pets (insert dookie joke here) and somehow maintaining a modicum of sanity (insert Lexapro factoid here). My husband and I had been together for several years, and recently tied the knot (insert noose joke here). We now have official names in our blended yumminess that we call "family." (Specifically, "step-mom" and "step-dad," as opposed to "step-mom-like-person and "him.")
Also, I like cheese.
SURPRISING FACT: I've biked from San Francisco to L.A. and would do it again. I KNOW, RITE??
