Hey! I’m Tricia, a former Army Officer and research analyst turned freelance writer-blogger here at Critters And Crayons and am Founder/Owner of Critters And Crayons, LLC.
I married a guy I met rappelling out of helicopters in the Army and we’ve produced a couple of innovatively comical and crazy-awesome kids who reliably provide fresh, un-amplified blog material. Thank Bloggy Goodness.
I took a break from the salaried grind to serve as a Professional Mom and freelance writer and now enjoy finding ways we can have fun and bond as a family wherever we might be while trying to create some resources for Laredo parents. (Check out the Laredo Community Round-Up to see what’s happening around our border town HERE.)
Above all, I seek to remember that there is wonder and laughter in this parenting adventure and in the world around us, if we can just stop the bustle long enough to see it With, For, And Because Of Our Kids.
Thanks for stopping by!
The Critters and Crayons Blog http://crittersandcrayons.com is about humor in parenting, crafting, education, play, family activities and other intriguing and odd things that bring happiness and laughter. It aims to find the funny in the every day- and, in particular, the most humorless of parenting situations. It’s also a place for parents to find resources and first-person reviews of activities around Laredo, Texas for children and families. The blog launched in April 2011 and became part of Critters And Crayons, LLC in May 2013!

Critters and Crayons got its start as a monthly column for Laredo Family Time Magazine which led to authorship of the Laredo Family Events Guide, a publication packaged and published by Laredo Family Time Magazine.
