<p>I&rsquo;m a woman, wife, and (tah-dah!) a mommy. I&rsquo;m seriously flawed as a person, hence the name of my blog: <strong>We Aren&rsquo;t Perfect</strong>. &nbsp;I&rsquo;m addicted to caffeine, chocolate and my kids&rsquo; naptimes. My floor will&nbsp;never be clean, the dishwasher is never empty, and my cats, both of whom I adopted and used to adore pre-children, are driving me crazy. I&rsquo;ve been married for six years to a wonderful, hunky man, and we have our shares of ups and downs. (A lot of them.) I&rsquo;m not religious-at all-I just think Jesus was the coolest dude ever. I love my two boys more than anything and find myself doing all of the annoying things I swore I would never do. Alas, I&rsquo;m a mom. <br /> <br /> <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.wearentperfect.blogspot.com">www.wearentperfect.com</a></p>
