This list of characters will come in handy when reading about our life here at The Mom Trap.
Some of those whom you may meet includes:
Brian (a.k.a. Daddy): The world's biggest University of Tennessee Volunteers fan, his whole wardrobe consists of nothing but orange and white along with jeans. Saturdays from late August until January are scheduled around college football.
Aside from college football, he can usually be found building something, piddling in the yard, or playing with the kids (Mama actually considers him her 5th child).
Kim (a.k.a. Mama): It will her point of view from which this blog is written - so it will be a bit biased. As a mom to four (or five, depending) ranging from teens to infants, she has very little time for herself; blogging is her escape.
When she's not herding children or blogging, she can usually be found curled up with a good true crime book or trying her hand at some new craft she discovered (if successful, you'll find it here; if not, well....).
Biggest Brother: Unfortunate enough to be the oldest child (or our canary in a coal mine, as George Lopez likes to say), he's been an experiment of sorts.
As a current high school student, his preference would be that his mother did not post his face worldwide on her Mom Blog; but we don't always get what we want, do we?
Bigger Brother: As the second child of four, this swing-by-the-seat-of-pants guy exhibits numerous traits of Middle Child Syndrome.
If he's not roaming in the woods or riding his motorcycle, you'll find him zoned out in front of his Xbox. (Although he doesn't like to admit it, girls are quickly replacing the other things as a favorite pastime.)
Big Brother: Obviously the one who's going to be too smart for his own good, this little guy keeps us on our toes.
Commonly referred to as Daddy Jr. around here because he mimics everything Daddy does. The only time he's not acting as Dad's shadow is the hours when Dad is at work (and if they had their way, he'd go there too!).
Most of the kidisms you'll find here will come from this one!
Princess A: Bless her little heart! Born into a family with three older brothers, we're commonly told that she'll never have a boyfriend because they'll run them off (which Dad is okay with).
Being the baby of the family, she's constantly doted on and seldom can be found not on someone's lap or being toted.
Always indulged - that's how she got the nickname Princess.
