Tell us a little bit about your blog:
After getting tired of other moms on the playground asking me if I was my daughter’s nanny, I decided I needed a place to vent. Of course it’s not all complaints, I share the ups of parenting too. I never thought it would be a challenge to raise bi-racial children in such a metropolitan area, but hopefully I can do it without cursing anyone out in front of my kids. If I do, you can come along for the ride.
Something unique about you?
I have a degree in costume design. Since I’ve been a mommy, I don’t get to do much costume design and construction. However I do take commissions. A few years ago I was given the opportunity to sew a Queen Elizabeth costume for a client’s 40th birthday. It was hard work but fun! Lately I’ve been sewing clothes for my 4 year old daughter. Ironically, if my shirt lost a button, it’d take me 6 months before I’d get around to sewing it back on.
Aside from blogging, what would you name as some of your passions?
One of my other passion is my business, Kim’s Passion Parties. Basically I get to go to an awesome woman’s home, meet her girlfriends, eat her food, drink her wine, and talk about sex toys. Oh, and sell them too. I’ve been doing it for over 8 years, and I love every minute of it! Seriously, though, I get to help women of all ages discover how to take charge of their pleasure. Heck, last week, I met with a woman who hasn’t had sex in 2 years. She refuses to cheat on her husband, so I’m glad I was able to give her some goodies to save her sanity. How cool is that?
Two of your fav places on the Internet?
I love Ricë Freeman-Zachery from Notes from the Voodoo Cafe. Imagine a writer/artist with hot pink hair who wears bright orange clothes AND is a white woman married to a black man in the middle Texas. Enough said.
Jean from Stimeyland never fails to make me laugh. AND I’m still mad I missed her Wii Fit party because I was in the hospital birthing a baby. (Ok, I’m only sort of kidding)
