My name is Jisun. I’m Korean (the kimchi). My job is to keep the kids alive and make sure the house doesn’t burn down (I have, unfortunately come very close to failing on the latter). I have a background in social services and professional cooking (I know, what is wrong with me?).
I’m married to the Latke. He works his butt off to keep us all clothed, is an amazing father, and is hands down the best person I’ve ever met in this world. He likes building stuff, making the kids laugh so hard they pee their pants, and any kind of noodle dish.
We have three kids (the spicy taters). Mouse is 4, going on 30. She spends most of her time fantasizing about all things sparkly, asking me questions that are too hard to answer, and trying to boss her sister around. Chipmunk is almost 2. She is mostly concerned with copying her big sister, preventing any of her big sister’s goals from coming to fruition and misbehaving with such panache that it is hard to really be mad at her. The Little Pirate just joined us. He’s added some surprises to our lives. Surprise pregnancy. Surprise Down Syndrome. I’m positive he’s got a few more surprises lined up for us. All the spicy taters have been born at home, on purpose.
I hope this blog will be a positive chronicle of a family raising children all along the nature’s continuum.
