Friday Follies: Meet the Parent

20160308_104904

I snagged her on the way out the door this morning. She’s going to flip when she sees I used this photo. She thinks she looks terrible – I think she’s adorable!

This morning we’re going to give you a little Behind the Scenes Tour at Brain Brigade. Well, really, I’m going to introduce you to my mom who keeps this place from exploding during our hands-on science projects. My parents have been married for a long time. I don’t exactly know how long because no one here is talking (but…if you ask my four-year old, Finn, he’ll tell you about 500 years). My mom has seen more of my dad’s crazy and creative classroom projects than she can recount. Sometimes my dad tested his science experiments and projects at home. And he’s always making something or tinkering around the house. She has stories to tell.

Sue will be joining us here at the blog a little more regularly. She’s funny. And intelligent. And organized. And she’s got all the dirt on my dad. Sue works for Fisher & Paykel…and is a sleep medicine expert. She has worked in the sleep industry for over 20 years. First as a sleep technologist and now working on the sleep products side helping people with sleep disorders get better sleep. If you have a question, she is not a doctor! But she probably has seen it happen or has some good suggestions to make sleeping easier for those of you who struggle. Leave your comments and fan mail below 😉

When Sue isn’t working you can find her attempting amazing feats while riding a hover board, working on her house (like right now at this moment she’s actually tiling a back splash in her kitchen!), or find her hanging out with her grand-kids (she has five). She also loves to travel. She loves to read. And she totes her little dog, Daisy, around with her often.

My dog Odin making little to no attempt to ride the hoverboard…

She has never had a specific hobby, until this week. After learning how to tile her kitchen back splash she is now ready to tile anything.
“It’s so picky and annoying and I loved every minute of it! Even the clean up is easy!” – yes, that is a direct quote!
She’s the ultimate multitasker. And you’re in for a treat!
