Nita: That is me, your host. I am a stay at home Mom who also works 2 nights a week outside the house (that way we don’t need childcare either Stewart, Danielle or Claire have a sleepover with The Dictator, and I don’t miss out on days with him). I like to shop but am trying very hard to cut back on that.
The Dictator: My energetic 28 month old son. I have a great weakness for cute boys clothing and this little guy is always looking quite dapper. He also has so much energy to burn, and I always need a way to burn some of the energy off. When this was a blogger site (and in my archives) he was known as Rito.
Stewart: The Dictator’s dad and my boyfriend of 11-12 years (kinda actually lost count now). I do not tell him how to spend his money and he is free to buy what he want when he wants it. He has the worlds most stressful job which makes him a little persnickety at times (no, living with me isn’t that stressful). In a previous life he was a musician, now he is a Dad, boyfriend and worker-bee. In the archives imported from blogger he is known as Dad!
Danielle: My Mom, and Super-Granny extraordinaire. Spoils my son rotten and buys everything in sight. She is super fit and agile for a Granny, and can be counted on to wear out The Dictator. I inherited the need to shop from her. Really. That’s my story and I am sticking to it.
Claire: Stewart’s Mom and Super-Granny extraordinaire . Loves to go tobogganing, read and sing to The Dictator. Also buys a lot of pajamas. But that’s OK by me!
Sam: The Dictator’s Grandpa. He is the head of “bedtime milk on the couch cuddling with Grandpa” time. The Dictator loves it. The Dictator also finds Grandpas fuzzy brush-cut quite amusing.
Paprika: World’s greatest dog ever. We love her SO much. The Dictator weighs as much as the dog now, so wrestling time is pretty evenly matched around here. The Dictator is in charge of feeding her twice a day and teasing her by pulling out her leash and doing nothing with it. In the archives imported from blogger she is known as BuddyLove.
