the story behind the blog name

I am sure there are people who balk at the fact that I call my son a monster. He really is not a monster. He is a sweet, funny and awesome kid. He was generally an easy baby. Sure, he had his moments, but he is by no means a brat, a terror or a monster.

When he was a tiny newborn I called him Squishy because he was a ball of squish. Seriously. His little face was always scrunched up and he was just adorable.

Once he started to get lanky I started calling him my little monster. They had all kinds of little boy clothing at the time that said “Mommy’s Little Monster” on it and the name stuck. My little monster grew to include me as “the mommy monster”.

I generally call him by his given name now, but the moniker has stuck for blogging. My sewing business is even called made with monster love as a continuation our of monster theme.

Let’s face it. I just like monsters.


new home

Hello everyone and welcome.

I amĀ  K and this is my new little corner of the internet. Cozy, don’t you think?

I am a 26-year-old mommy of one who enjoys quilting, crafting, baking and reading in my “free” time.

I am a lesbian and have been with my partner for 6 years. She is my rock and I love her to pieces.

Our son is two and my world. He is sweet and silly. He is pretty darn cute, too. He will make an appearance on my bloggity blog from time to time.

My little family lives in the Midwest, near a pretty well-known collegiate town. We currently rent a home in a small neighborhood just outside the city.

This blog will be my place to get my thoughts out. I will try to make it coherent to you, the reader, but I make no guarantees. I will try to update frequently.

lots of love!
