Q: Where did the name Mommy Nani Booboo come from?
A: Sometimes I think the Universe is teasing me.
It came from the dark recesses of my sleep deprived, “mommy brain”. It has no real significant meaning. It’s just fun to say and helps keep me from getting too serious. If my server crashes, and I have to call someone all pissed off, and when they ask me the name of my site? Well, I’ve gotta say “Mommy Nani Booboo dot com” in the bitchiest way possible. That’s fun.
Q: Why don’t you use your son or husband’s real names?
A: Do you think that Bam Bam and Hot Nerd are not their real names?
I’m not trying to seem super mysterious. But when my son gets older, I want him to have the option of denying that any of these posts are about him. Kids can be cruel. I do the same for my hubby, because we all know that sometimes high school doesn’t really end — it just goes corporate.
Q: What’s with the truck driver mouth? You seem to cuss a lot. Parents should not have potty mouths.
A: Bitch, you must not read a lot of blogs!
I actually have a fairly clean mouth in real life. My parents did not swear and neither did I. That’s the beauty of writing. Sometimes I can say things I wouldn’t normally say out loud. There may be a few posts where I feel the need for a splash of colorful wordage. But for the most part, I’m tame- you must not get out much.
Swearing is not a big part of my life. But it is, on occasion, a part of my writing.
Q: Are you a Mommy Blogger?
A: I don’t know. What the hell is a “Mommy Blogger”?
Q: Lionesses don’t grow manes. How do they know when they’ve grown up?
A: And women don’t grow beards. The female is generally the smarter and more intuitive of any species. We don’t need it spelled out for us.
