I decided to knock the dust bunnies off of this particular piece and revamp it a bit for all of you newbies out there. I gained a lot of wonderful new followers recently, and although I may have done my due diligence in getting you intrigued with my quirky little blog, you may still be wondering “who in the heck is this chick exactly? And what in the world is up with her goofy family?”

So for your entertainment, I’ve shared some old (yet still utterly interesting) facts, about the We Got Kidz family, and I’ve added a few new juicy tidbits to wet your curious whistle.

 

1.) I gave birth to a gold medal gymnast...

1.) I gave birth to a gold medal gymnast...

Much to my dismay, I gave birth via cesarean section. My twins were head down and poised to come out the traditional way... that is, up until the last minute. My daughter - who I'm assuming was aiming for a perfect, feet first landing - flipped around, which forced my doctor to have to cut me open and pull my children from my loins.

2.) My daughter is a super hero...

2.) My daughter is a super hero...

My daughter AJ will jump, flip, and throw herself off of anything if you let her. She's a daredevil, and she loves it. Unfortunately, she's also unable to run at full speed without tripping over air. These two attributes have earned her the super hero nickname "The Clumsy Daredevil".

3.) My kids don't leave the house without looking fly...

3.) My kids don't leave the house without looking fly...

My twins are the real live dolls that I always wanted. (Minus the mess and all the extra noise.) I rarely leave the house with them without giving them a funky-fresh outfit to wear. I'm a self-proclaimed funky-fashionista and I believe my babies should reflect that.

4.) My worst fear is choking...

4.) My worst fear is choking...

Choking has to be the worst feeling in the world. I'm so paranoid that I rarely suck on hard candies or pop whole grapes in my mouth.

My fear has apparently transferred to my children. They will refuse to eat their food unless it's been chopped into microscopic pieces.

4 1/2.) ...Strike that. My worst fear has to be bugs.

4 1/2.) ...Strike that. My worst fear has to be bugs.

Anything bigger than my pinky nail and I'm hysterical. Anything bigger than my pinky and I've permanently vacated the premises.

5.) David the gay white roommate...

5.) David the gay white roommate...

Before my twins were born, my then boyfriend and I thought that it would be a good idea to rent out one of the bedrooms in our condo. He was a cuddly, hairy, gay, white man whom we grew to love dearly. He sort of became an extension of our family. Love you David!

6. I'm a free spirit...

6. I'm a free spirit...

Even though I won numerous writing contests and awards all throughout high school, and even though English was one of the only subjects that I excelled in, I didn't accept being a writer as a profession until only recently. I walk to the beat of my own drum. What can I say?

7.) I was a super model...

7.) I was a super model...

Okay, so "super model" may be a bit of a stretch, but I did stretch my modeling chops quite a bit in my early 20's. Was I Naomi Campbell? Um, no; but I dang sure had a good time.

8.) My husband and I were Atlanta royalty...

8.) My husband and I were Atlanta royalty...

Okay, this one may be a bit of a stretch as well; but my husband and I were on Atlanta's social scene quite a bit back when we first met. We loved to get cute, put on our dancing shoes, and jam the night away.

We've since traded our dancing shoes for fuzzy, baby snot covered slippers, but we dream of hitting the streets again later in life once the kids are grown and gone.

9.) An identity crisis, and mistaken identity. That describes our childhood...

9.) An identity crisis, and mistaken identity. That describes our childhood...

All the way up until I turned about 8, I thought that I was Caucasian. My mother broke the news to me gently one day in the car on the way to school. My response?

"That's cool. Black people seem to dance better anyways."

On the flip side, due to my husbands light skin, he was mistaken for being Caucasian and even Puerto Rican for a good portion of his young life.

10.) Rihanna is my fashion muse...

10.) Rihanna is my fashion muse...

If I had the money and fame that Rihanna has, I'd dress similar to her, get tons of cool tattoos like her, and style my hair differently daily the same way she does. I think her style is pretty dope.

Attempting to have funky style and tons of tattoos would undoubtedly be misunderstood here in my little town down South.

11.) My son is super-human...

11.) My son is super-human...

My son is almost three and hasn't ever been sick with anything more than a little cold. No flus. No ear infections - A clean bill of health. It's quite amazing actually. My husband is the same way - I've never seen him sick. I'd like to say that I took that into consideration when I married him, but unfortunately, I'm not that clever.
