~ Cast of Characters

GeekMommy – me. A 40-something Mommy to one adorable girl. Happily married. Trying to balance being a geek, an older mom, a wife, and everything else at the same time.

GeekDaddy – the husband. Occasionally known as M, my husband, or something less palatable when I’m tired and cranky. He’s younger than I (still in his 30’s – I robbed the cradle!) but just as big a geek (if not bigger.)

Buttercup – the daughter. Born January 2003, as I start this blog, she’s 4 years old, going to preschool and already smarter than I am. But still smaller and as yet unaware of the fact that I am not omniscient, so I mostly win any battles… we’ll see how long that lasts. She’s my princess and a girly-girl. But she’s had her own computer since before she could walk, and she’s already got the keyboard and the mouse down cold. She’ll be the geekiest girl in pink at Prom, that’s for sure.

Ms. M – one of Buttercup’s two current preschool teachers. The older one, she reminds me of my Aunt.

Ms. L – the other preschool teacher, young, pretty and redhead. She’s 2nd in command.

Trixie – Buttercup’s best friend. 2 months older – they’ve known each other since they were in the same 6-9 month old Mommy-and-me class. They’ve gone to the same schools for the past 4 years. The past 3 in the same class.

Uncle J – GeekMommy’s older brother by 2 yrs.

This will be updated as necessary! :)

    As background, AudibleKids is created by Audible, which for the past 10 years has been helping thousands of kids become better readers and learners through downloadable audiobooks. Launching at the end of this month, AudibleKids will build on this track record in a number of ways:
    AudibleKids represents a new, fun way to help children enjoy great stories and learn to read better.
    It will be the first and only website where parents, children, authors and educators come together to discover and share great audiobooks.
    Unmatched choice: with over 3,500 titles and new-to-digital content, AudibleKids will provide the widest selection and highest quality children’s audio books available.
    Near universal distribution: AudibleKids content can be downloaded directly from the Internet onto digital audio devices and can play on over 500 models of audio players including the Apple iPod, PDAs, mobile phones and streaming media devices.
    We look forward to seeing you at AudibleKids and thank you in advance for your time and interest!
