About Lady Goo Goo Gaga

LADY GOO GOO GAGA is a stay-at-home mother to two boys, born 18 months apart in the suburbs of CT.  She used to spend her days smoking cigarettes in NY thinking about which shoe she was going to buy next.  Now she wears flip-flops year round from the Old Navy.

She has survived the past 7 years with her sanity somewhat in tact with the help of :

A – Very good undereye concealer

B – Her DVR

C – A couple of good friends who don’t live in her crazy town who can tell her that; “No – it’s not normal that everyone in your playgroup threw out their hutches, crystal and china and turned their dining room into a playroom.”

D – Wine

She also has a great husband who supports her 100 percent even though the girl he married weighed approximately 27 lbs less than she does today, didn’t wear ill-fitting clothes and waxed her moustache in a timely fashion.

She was in a sleep-deprived state of shock for the first 4 years of motherhood. Now that both of her children are in school where they belong- (with qualified professionals)  she has short snippets of time now when she can think clearly and form full sentences, and uses that time to blog her stories!  Enjoy ;)

  26. Hello!

    Thanks to your Twitter feed, I discovered your splendid site. Pretty amazing!

    I would like to share with you my latest book for children. It’s called, Longfellow And The Deep Hidden Woods. http://www.hushpuppybooks.com/our-books/longfellow-and-the-deep-hidden-woods/ It was published this past September. I would love to send you a review copy as a PDF file.

    The Longfellow books deals with the issues of death and bereavement. Children often have difficulty processing the death of a family member or a beloved pet. All too often children are excluded from any meaningful discussion about this important life transition. This oversight leaves kids guessing about the sudden disappearance of the loved one or pet and no way to process their grief. It can also have a devastating effect on a child’s development. So much of the confusion, bewilderment, and unresolved grief from childhood is often carried into adulthood.

    I think there’s a better way.

    A good place to begin is with the stories we read with and to our children. Stories become the basis of a child’s understanding of the world. They contribute to their language development as well as their critical thinking, and coping skills. Death and grief are particularly thorny subjects to communicate to children, not because children are incapable of grasping the message, but because we, the adult storytellers, are often unprepared for, or even uncomfortable with, the topics ourselves.

    Let’s face it; there are precious few children’s books available that tackle these important topics.

    You and your blog are on the front line of helping shape opinion and opening discussion on timely issues that impact families and child rearing. I hope you will accept my offer to send you a review copy. I assure you, you won’t be disappointed. Longfellow is getting rave reviews from everyone who reads it, children and adults alike. And perhaps there might be an opportunity to collaborate on a giveaway at some point.

    I hope to hear back from you. Till then, thank you for all your hard work on behalf of families everywhere.

  28. Hello! I love your sense of humor and your blog is perfect! It’s great how becoming a mother can change how you are as a person. I used to buy buy buy in college, now I am all about trying to save (and stick to it) lol

    My name is Tiffany and I run a website called http://thechicandfrugalmommy.com/ for young mothers. I share information regarding fashion, parenting, and I also write about my story of surviving a domestic violence and sexually abusive relationship. My goal is to help others and provide helpful resources to young parents.

    I just wanted to let you know that I’ve recommended your website to my readers and I hope that you could take a moment and check out my blog. If you like it, please pass it on. I would like to continue to help others.

    Thank you so much for taking the time out to read this message and have a blessed day!
