She’s definitely our kind of people!

Oh, and if you are wondering what Kludgy Mom means, like I was, here’s the story:

A kludgy mom (clue-gee mom) is a mom who uses clumsy or inelegant, yet effective, solutions to problems, typically usingΒ  items that are cobbled together. In other words, a mom who makes things up as they go.

Our girl is going to fit in very well around these parts.Β  πŸ™‚
