I'm a 30ish, single mom to two high energy, high drama stubborn girls.  They challenge me, humor me, teach me and stress me out...DAILY!!!  Laughter is my coping mechanism and writing is my therapy.  

You'll see I write about my parenting blunders, my crazy friends and the occasional serious topic or vent.  My blog is my outlet for anything and everything that might eventually drive me to insanity...I'm already medicated, so a straight jacket may not be too far outside of the realm of possibility.

Why the name Graceful Disaster?  I'm the clumsiest, most accident prone person I know.  I've been known to fall face first from a sitting position...trip over the EXACT same thing in the EXACT same spot every day.  I trip, fall, slip, slide and run into door jams...but I'm a pro at laughing at myself or making it look like I did it on purpose.  

I hope by reading my blog, you'll get a good laugh...and realize you're not the only non-perfect parent out there.  If you'd like to pop a bag of popcorn and pull up a seat to watch the comedy/drama/horror film that is my life, please follow me here and on Facebook here


  1. If you are unfamiliar with the Liebster Blog Award, it is a wonderful way for bloggers to acknowledge each other's hard word. It helps to encourage a positive attitude toward one another as well as complement each other. I recently received this award for my site Happy Little Feet. I have been following your blog and loved it so I am handing the torch to you. To continue the pay it forward model you read my post here and link back to it once you have written your own.

  2. I look forward to visiting all the Southern mom bloggers. I am orginally from Lower Alabama (LA) but I currently live in Arkansas. I am a Christian Mom blogger. I am glad I found all of you. Blessings Always, Diane Roark www.recipesforourdailybread.com
