My page is dedicated to all the moms out there who have no idea what the hell they’re doing but are trying their best just the same. It’s for the current mom, old mom, past mom and wannabe mom who get that children are a blessing but they’re also kinda the worst.
My name is Adriana and I am Red For Thought. Follow me on my journey to a wonderfully messed up motherhood!
I am officially 31 years old. I’ve contemplated Botox but I’m scared of needles. I absolutely must sleep with a heating pad on my stomach but the room temperature needs to be freezing. I’ve been married for 6ish years and am the mother of three sons (that’s right). I have two brothers, one older, one younger, and I justttttt moved out of my parents house. I have red hair, which is where the name came from, and I’m extremely outspoken but oddly introverted. My family is my life and even though I sound like I don’t like them; I really, really do. I am Adriana.
Santiago Sr. (Santiago, Puffin)
Santiago is my Puffin Boo and we’re obsessed with each other. We are in it to win it. He hates being on social media but loves to use my phone to see what other people are up to. He’s reserved when necessary and secretly hilarious. He cares not what people think of him and he marches to the beat of his own drum. He is obsessed with his kids and having full-time help. This is Santiago Sr.
Santiago Jr. (Santi)
My first-born son, the ultimate proof of love at first sight and the reason I am a mom. He is the absolute sweetest boy that has ever existed. He loves giving hugs and kisses. He is the king of sweets and Chicken Kitchen. He loves to be outdoors as much as I love to be indoors (see how that doesn’t work in my favor?) and has an insane amount of energy that even the Energizer Bunny would be confused by. He is obsessed with Hulk and Tarzan and still thinks yelling at the top of his lungs is super cool. He is both hilarious and a monster and I wouldn’t change a thing about him. This is Santiago Jr.
My baby. I swore this one would be a girl. I was sure of it. But here he is, penis and all. He is entering his terrible twos terribly early and we aren’t prepared. He was thrust into being a big brother probably a little too soon and is the most mischievous child I have ever met in my entire life. I look deep into his beautiful baby blue eyes and I can’t believe he is mine. He dances, slaps me, insists upon walking around the house with a broom at all times, and has the most kissable cheeks and inner thighs I’ve ever seen. I’m also a little sad because he seems to enjoy the nanny’s company more than mine but you win some you loose some. This is Joaquin.
Our little surprise and my third son. He’s the real star of this family because he came unannounced and ready to wreck havoc. I was not ready for his arrival but he came guns a blazing in the middle of a pandemic and made my life whole. I’ve known him for 4 months but feel like I’ve known him a lifetime. I adore him but know that his arrival was traumatizing for me and I’ll never let him forget it. He’s the runt of our litter and he’ll probably have everyone wrapped around his tiny finger. This is Antonio.
Oh my mother… she’s half my mom, half my little sister. She tells on me to my dad and Puffin but will drop anything to hang out with me or my boys. She says she loves them equally but is oddly obsessed with Santi. She steals my purses, jewelry and ideas, and does it with a mischievous smirk. She has weird rules in the house but she still let me live with her, so I’ll take it. This is Mama.
My father hates social media and doesn’t understand people’s obsession with taking photos. He hides M&M’s in his office and “secretly” gives them to Santi, even when I ask him not to. He hates small chairs in restaurants and will never sit outside. He loves the Bahamas but hates the beach. He’s a complex fellow, guys. He cannot be described, he needs to be experienced. This is Papa.
Bebo and Andres
I have two brothers, Bebo and Andres. They’ve both abandoned me to live in NYC and they don’t even live together. One is an engineer and the other is in finance. They take my opinion super seriously and they both make fun of me for completely different reasons. I don’t think I know anyone on this earth funnier than them. This is Bebo and Andres.
