Introducing LunaNik

As a newly appointed Bad Mommy contributer I'm doing the obligatory getting to know you meme. So here goes:

1. Post a picture of your kids.
Check. See above. That pic is a coupla months old, but it's the newest pic I have of the two of them together. I know, I'm totally a bad mommy. But that's why I'm here. Heh.

2. Tell us all 3 things we wouldn't know about you.
** 1 ** I got pregnant with baby #1 while on the pill. I never, ever planned on having children in my lifetime. Seriously, never. But once I felt that baby grow and move inside me, my entire mindset changed.
** 2 ** I sleep on a mattress on the floor. No box spring. No bed frame. Just mattress and floor. It started as a financial thing. I just couldn't afford the box spring or frame. I love it so much now that I don't think I'll ever have a "real" bed again. Well, maybe when I'm 80 and my old ass won't be able to get up from laying prone on the floor!
** 3 ** I never in a million years thought the conventional roles of a SAHM would be so appealing to me, being that I've always been such an unconventional person.

3. Tell us some things we wouldn't know about your kid(s).
My kids birthdays are just over a year apart. They're practically twins. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Now, it's wonderful. They are very close. Where one goes, the other follows. But...when they're 13 and 14, I have a feeling I'm in for trouble. Either they will totally be partners in crime and gang up on me, or they will be at each others' throats constantly...even worse, they could be both at the same time. Eeekkk.

4. What quote/saying best describes the way you feel about being a mommy?
This one's easy. There is only one saying regarding being a mom that has ever stuck in my head and it's this: "Mother is God in the eyes of a child" It's funny because I'm not religious and have been known to even question the existence of the popular notions of "God"...but there is something about this saying that just resonates with me.

5. Who's your Famous Mommy Role Model (haha, like there actually are any good celebrity mommies)
I wouldn't say she's a role model, but I've always respected the hands-on, down to earth approach Reese Witherspoon has taken when raising her children. If I had to pick someone to be a role model, it'd be her.

6. If you could have one wish granted for your kid(s), what would it be?
Come on...this is sooooo easy. Two words: TRUST FUND
