Day 4

My Parents

First, I need you to appreciate that I'm having a glass of wine and eating jelly beans with Brian.  On a Sunday night.  Because Lulu has woken up every hour for the past two nights and wine+jellybeans makes it bearable.  Also having a car paid off for the first time in a long time... GO US!

Keith, my father, is an intelligent, somewhat anti-social, electrical engineer.  He has four kids: my two sisters, one brother and myself.  He has not been a dad to my sisters and I for a long time.  He and my brother are quite close.  I choose to not have a relationship with him for a lot of reasons, but maintain distance because I do not want Lulu to know or be influenced by him.  

My mom. 
-Raised four kids after a horrendous divorce.
- had me convinced for years that she was a hairdresser for Madonna.
- has Lady Godiva hair extensions.
-invented the 'Wrapping Machine' song (vital info).
-told her kids that eggrolls were made of cat meat so she would get them all.
-has amazing table manners.
-is capable of talking to anyone, seriously.
-is probably the most crazy person I know.  Most of the time in a fun way. 
- married a man that I hadn't met until our trip home last month, and is adopting his 6 year old daughter.
(just call us the Kardashians)

Clockwise from top: Me, Meg, Molly, Mum, Max

Yea, I come from crazy.  And I'm pretty sure I'm just perpetuating the cycle!
