Welcome to Adventures in SLIGHTLY Above Average Parenting. I’m Max’s Mom. That’s not the name I was born with but it seems to be the name that is sticking the most these days so I’ve CLAIMED IT! I’m Max’s Mom, the artist formerly known as Candice. I’m the proud mother to a year of the dragon, Gemini, I’ve been here before, 7 going on 45-year-old boy named Maximus Chase. He is the joy of my heart, the source of my greys and the reason I drink occasionally. In addition to being his mom, I consider myself a community mom. What does that mean? That means, I try to be what I had and needed to the village/posse I’ve built. Guess what, you are all part of that posse now. I shall call us, the parent posse. Aside from being a mom, I’ve lived the life of a licensed teacher and actor. This trifecta allows me to be an edutainer. Don’t judge me, I spend most of my time with little people. I’ve realized, parenting is a daily adventure filled with stories. Some funny, some heavy and some that leave you in tears. Kids don’t come manuels and we are all doing our best to get by. As we go on this adventure called parenting, it is better together, in community. So welcome to mine. Join me as I tell stories from my friends, myself and maybe some of yours of the lessons learned on this adventure of slightly above average parenting. Why Slightly above average. Well come on if we did exceptional parenting all the time, they would have nothing to complain to their therapist to in the future.

In addition to our weekly stories, I will drop a mini episode with an educational suggestion to help, hopefully, load your parenting toolbox to help your little people make developmental and academic gains.

I’m so excited to have you join me on this adventure of SLIGHTLY above average parenting. And if you are having a bad parenting day, remember, the mom on ET had an alien living in her house for days and never even noticed. Just saying. If you’re doing better than that, you are already winning. Be kind to yourself!!!! and I will chat with you soon.
