Bad Mama


I am Bad Mama, otherwise known as Carrie. My husband of eleven years (!!) is Big Daddy,  and two daughters, Peanut and Squirt. Peanut was born in 2004 with Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita, which is diagnosed in 1 in 3000 pregnancies. Her particular type, amyoplasia, is the most common and affects 1 in 10,000 live births.  We think she’s one in a trillion.

We live in Madison, Wisconsin, with a dog and more cats than I would like to admit publicly. I grew up in a small town in Northern Wisconsin, and Big Daddy is from Atlanta. We are both happy to now live in a city where all the candidates we vote for actually win.

I believe that commenting on blogs is like speaking to speaking to someone you just met at a party at a friend’s house.  If you don’t like the conversation, then feel free to politely take your leave and find someone else to chat with. For the record, I am not asking for random people to comment on ways they think I suck. And if you say one bad thing about my kid, I’ll cut you.
