who runs little dictators, anyway?

the little dictators: cole and josiehey there! did i tell you i managed to take a shower today? that's a HUGE accomplishment, because i have children! that's right!

a "good night's sleep" is three consecutive hours. i may be covered in spit-up and/or truck stickers. yes, i'm wearing uggs. they're comfortable. leave me alone.

i can now sleep through the sound of a jackhammer, but i will hear my child's teeniest tiniest whimper from ten miles away. if you ring the doorbell during naptime, i *may* kill you. no jury would convict me.

i can entertain an infant for hours on end. i know at least three songs that i can sing over and over and over again. i can do so many things with only one free hand that i put the drummer from def leppard to shame.

i am capable of tasks most mere mortals would never dream of - like feeding my child and updating my facebook account at the same time.

i am amazing. i am exhausted. i am a mom. and i wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. (except maybe more sleep.)


little dictators is the overlap in the venn diagram where snark and parenthood meet.  with illustrations!

hopefully little dictators will provide the kind of entertainment that only one sleep-deprived, drooled-on, house-bound, elated and exhausted parent can give another. all illustrations you see here are kid-tested and mom-approved by our trusted little dictators team (me), and even dachshund-approved on special occasions.

we love to hear your stories and ideas, so please feel free to e-mail us at littledictators@gmail.com if you'd like to share.

happy parenting! oh, and try and get some sleep.
