About thefatsquirrel

I'm a fat, sassy, tattooed, knittin' Mama. My days are filled with knitting, spinning, baking, reading, nature walking, marveling at my daughter's endless font of energy, fussing at aforementioned daughter in mean mommy tones for aforementioned energy and avoiding housework at all costs.
