Monday’s Mama is Geeky AF.

And now for something completely different.

Since I’ve been blogging, I have ‘met’ so many mamas that are super cool chicas. MAMAS TODAY ARE LIT, Y’ALL. I don’t know what they told ya.

I want to introduce all of these amazing mamas to you. Every other Monday will be dedicated to featuring other people. I go on and on and on about myself quite enough and I really need to STFU already. These people are WAY more interesting than me.

But three questions only because no one (them, me, YOU) has time for more than that.

Candy Keane is perfect for our inaugural Monday’s Mama post. This lady is FREAKING AWESOME. Candy Keane is a costumer, maker of geeky things, Army wife, and mom to one energetic toddler named Keelan. Candy is internationally known for her cosplay and costume design, and more locally known for the Three Muses costume boutique she owned in Jacksonville, Florida, for many years before closing to concentrate on her personal projects. And chase her toddler. She shares her awesome life with us mortals on her blog SewGeekMama.

Candy Keane is stunningly beautiful and she is also the Mother of Dragons. Well, she’s the mother of ONE adorable dragon, Keelan.

1. How do you share your love of all things Geek with your kid while he is still so little?
 
It’s really easy because kids love typically geeky things like superheroes and Star Wars! So he gets to go to conventions with me and see all his favorite superheroes live. He loves it! And he makes a pretty good little sidekick when we dress up as long as he’s not having a tantrum. It happens. He earned the nickname Luke Crywalker at Star Wars Celebration, lol. 

2. What is your most favorite costume that you have ever made?

I get this question a lot and I can never narrow it down to one! My favorites are my Wonder Women – the classic Lynda Carter, New 52, Justice League and steampunk styles. And if I had to choose from those, it’s 70s Wonder Woman all the way. That’s who I grew up with and that’s who I first started dressing up as when I was four.

3. Star Wars or Star Trek?
I actually like both! But if I was forced to choose, it will always be Star Wars.

This Star Wars / Sesame Street (Star S’mores!!) crossover group costume is the coolest thing you will see on the internet today. 100% guaranteed or your money back.

For all of the awesomeness from Candy Keane, follow her on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

 

Halloween Hangover.

November 1 is National Eat Your Child’s Candy Day and I can’t even play this year. Babystar started puking yesterday afternoon and didn’t stop until after midnight, like some sort of freshman sorority girl. No Trick-or-Treating for us.

So I guess her SEVENTH costume was the girl from The Exorcist. Man, she really committed.

My sweet Teenager brought Halloween inside to the sick ToddlerMonster by surrounding us with a glow stick, a couple of plastic pumpkins, and her Halloween balloon. And some chocolate but I ate it so fast I barely remember its existence. Babystar woke up once, looked around, and said ‘kitty.’ I put her new kitty jacket over her pajamas, put my kitty onesie on over my uniform yoga pants, and we went outside. She liked looking at the decorations and the trick-or-treaters (from a safe ten foot germ-free distance). After about fifteen minutes, she puked again. And back inside we went.

We spent this morning at the doctor’s office. I actually already had an appointment because I am psychic except not really. The Teenager needed a physical for school and Babystar was meant to get her second installment of the Baby Flu Shot. I talked to the doctor during the Teenagers appointment and she told me to hold off on the flu shot and I didn’t need to worry since the baby was finally keeping fluids down and peeing. PLUS the nurse had already taken Babystar’s temperature in preparation for her shot so we knew that she didn’t have a fever.

They only charged me for the Teenager’s visit so I basically committed medical fraud.

AND I didn’t even remember to get my standard butterscotch flavored dumdum lollipop. Damn. The Universe does NOT want me to have candy today.

RAISING BABYSTAR: $12,974.80

Oh, hey, I’m gonna try to do this NaBloPoMo thing this year. One blog post per day in November. I don’t spend money every day so this should be interesting. Or incredibly boring. There is only one way to find out.

Is anyone else out there doing NaBloPoMo this year?
