Welcome to Big Top Family! I started this circusy family blog because when I was around 11 years old, I used to read a comic strip called “Family Circus.” I loved keeping up with its big, unruly family’s misadventures, because here was a family who made being chaotic, and messy, and flawed look super fun and amusing. That’s exactly what I’m aiming to do here. I am a multi-task-dysfunctional mother of three boys (including a set of twins) and a survivor of a weird childhood. I irreverently write about my strange, religion-saturated childhood in a section of this blog called Old School Circus. I write about my crazy present wherein I daily try to figure out how to juggle my balls, in a section called Cirque du Today. Somehow, it always seems like my past and present find a way of meeting in the middle.
Here’s a quick breakdown of what this blog is all about.
Now that you know a little about me and my blog, you can dig into some of my background by reading About the Ringleader. Or you can get busy reading some of my favorite stories!
Here are some of my favorites!
