Why “Momma Goose”?
For reasons not worth mentioning, my husband calls me "Gooseberry." Our sweet son hatched on May 9th, 2009. I started thinking like a Mom long before that.

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

This is to have succeeded.

I scored that puppy in an essay contest. The topic was, “What will you do if someone offers you drugs?”
The DARE officers liked that I said “I would weigh the pros and cons.”

There’s nothing like a properly stocked diaper bag to make a new parent feel like MacGyver in the face of a minor emergency.
