Howdy! My name’s Robin and I’d like to welcome you to Masshole Mommy, a blog I’ve been writing since October of 2009.
Urban Dictionary defines a masshole as “For residents of Massachusetts, it is an achieved title for drving faster, being wreckless, cutting other drivers off often, and having no patience for other drivers on the road”.
First and foremost, I am the mom of three boys.
Being a mom is the absolutely the best thing that’s ever happened to me and I am incredibly lucky to have my children in my life. I have a seven year old and ten year old of my own and when I got re-married in October of 2010, I gained a bonus son, who is 19. My 19 year old is currently a sophomore at UMass Amherst as well as serving in the National Guard one weekend a month. My oldest son is 12 years old & in the 7th grade while my little guy is 9 and in the 3rd grade.
I am divorced from my kids father, but he is still a very big part of their lives, which I am very thankful for. I know that situation could have gone in a completely different direction and I feel so fortunate that it didn’t I married my second husband, Chris, who is a tax accountant and a retired Air Force Master Sargent, in Las Vegas on 10/10/10….and with a date like that, he’d better never forget our anniversary! Before you ask, yes, we did get married by Elvis. He’s an amazing husband and step-father to my children.
In addition to working from home part time, I actively volunteer at my kids schools every chance I get!! I love, love, love introducing my children to as many new experiences as I possibly can. Part of those new experiences come with traveling and my family travels several times a year.
As for personal interests, I am an amateur photographer, a MAJOR Disney fanatic and I love all things paranormal. Truth be told, I actually have some paranormal investigation experience under my belt. I watch way too much tv with some of my favorite shows being The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family and The X-Files. I truly enjoy traveling and my long-term goal in life is to someday own and operate my own Bed and Breakfast in northern New England.
