Dana Loesch, a wife, and mother to two boys named Liam
and Ewan. They were not named after the "Star Wars" actors. My husband of eight years, Chris, works in music in a studio located in a historic building for which he oversaw the rehab. We live in St. Louis and are the party wherever we go.
This website is about my experiences in parenting and life in general. I've written for a very long time and blogged since 2001 (anonymously until 2004). I blog and host a radio show for a living. Here is my professional bio.I enjoy Photoshop, photography, and music. I have tattoos and used to have multiple piercings. I am a recovering potty-mouth. My prior language caused kittens and fairies to spontaneously combust. I don't say dirty words anymore UNLESS I'm yelling at my kids. I want my kids to be able to read the things I wrote about them someday without expressing concern that yes, I did kiss them with that mouth.
I also homeschool both of my kids which means that we spend our days sacrificing lambs and watching "Porky's" on VHS. They're both extremely unsocialized and communicate by drawing figures in the playground sand with sticks. I kid!
We are non-denominational Jesus-freaks. I think some people are scared of Christians because they
think we're all like Piper Laurie's Carrie character,
fuzzy-headed carnival barkers who make a circus out of worship. Those
kind of people scare the crap out of me, too. I left the church for
awhile because I allowed other people to represent their distorted
views of Christianity to me instead of discovering for
myself. I eventually came back. My entire world lit up in Technicolor when I gave
birth to my first child.
Motherhood isn't easy and I definitely have my Calgon moments - did I seriously think that something which began by RAMMING ITS WAY OUT OF MY VAGINA was going to be a cakewalk? Yet nothing on this earth is more rewarding. I always sum up being a parent with an observation from "Parenthood": I like the rollercoaster.
