Monday’s Mama is Two-Dimensional AF.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in James’s Giant Peach? Or maybe Toontown? Or a Cool World?

Erika from Dorky Mom Doodles totally lives in that world with her family. At least, she lives there on the internet (where you can be anything you want to be especially if you want to be mean in the comment section which Erika is decidedly NOT).

Erika is SUPER nice. A super nice cartoon mom that shares all of the hilarious things her cartoon family does with all of  us three dimensional people. She’s basically the Matt Groenig of Mommy Blogs and EVERYONE loves the Simpsons.

If you haven’t seen Dorky Mom Doodles, go check her out now. I’ll wait.

You can also find her on Facebook and Twitter. She isn’t on Instagram anymore but she TOTALLY belongs there. Doodles belong in squares!! We can try to convince her if we work together. Let’s start by signing this petition! (<–you can click there or you can TOTALLY CLICK THE PICTURE BELOW because I figured out how to turn a picture into a link!!)

Dorky Mom Doodles creator Erika is a SAHM to two kids. When she isn’t busy with the typical mom stuff (soccer, changing diapers, and refereeing shouting matches), she enjoys Netflix binges, reading, and creating bad AWESOME doodles for her blog. (She said bad. I said awesome. I am correct.)
She answered a few questions for me and it turns out she is even cooler than I knew.

1. Do you have any training in art or are you just naturally amazing?

I haven’t taken an art class since middle school, so no, I have no training whatsoever. This is probably painfully obvious at time considering how badly drawn the arms on my people are!

2. If you could be any superhero, with both their powers and weaknesses, which would you choose?

Wonder Woman. She is nothing short of amazing, and having that lasso of truth would certainly come in handy at times — especially when I’m trying to get to the bottom of some kid drama.

3. Itโ€™s the PTA Bake Sale: homemade, store bought, or NOPE?

Homemade. I usually hate functions like this, but I can bake the hell out of some cookies, cakes, and pies. I’ll take one for the team just so I can show off.
Erika rocks. Plus she once made my dreams come true by Doodling Babystar and I and she even made my hair purple. Thank you, Erika!!
(Look! I hyperlinked the picture again!! I am basically a computer nerd now.)

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.

Candy Keane 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.
