Momma of three young kids, husbanded up and always distracted. People on Twitter call me Mango but you can also call me Andrea. I have a couple degrees that I’ve never put to good use and for a Stay At Home Mom it’s more touch and go with my cooking than you’d probably imagine. I’m into nostalgia and I collect vintage jewelry like fashionistas collect shoes. I hate high heels, love semicolons and wish I was a writer. I’m completely indecisive yet always opinionated. I hate to say I’m feisty, but I guess it’s true and honestly I don’t really get the bacon craze. I yap a lot about public schools and get obsessed with the news, love trashy television and have a stack of books to read that’s higher than the Chrysler building. I don’t think I have a definite niche per se, but I teeter on the balance beam from Mommy Blogger to Political Pundit on the regular, hence the name: From Playgrounds To Politics.
I also have an ongoing Blog at the Democrat and Chronicle.
