About

Welcome to Not Your Average Mom.

My name is Susie, and I’m 44 years old. I live in Connecticut with my husband and 7 kids.

Here we all are.

From left to right it’s me, Number 7, Number 4, Number 3, Number 1 (above), Number 6 (below) my husband, Number 5, and Number 2.

Our life is not usually as pretty as this picture.

Almost never, really.

And that’s what I like to write about.

The stuff that some people don’t want to talk about.

That most people don’t want to admit.

If the word fuck bothers you,

this is probably not the blog for you.

If you are looking to judge,

please go somewhere else.

If you are looking for perfection,

um,

I can give you The Pioneer Woman’s website.

Or the Duggars.

They’re pretty perfect.

Us?

Nah.

What fun is that?

If you’re looking for a little reality, pull up a seat.

You may want to buckle up.

It’s gonna be a bumpy ride.
