Betsy has been blogging for a seeming century-- ever since she retired from her career as a professional snowboarder and found herself stranded in a remote living room in Vermont with a baby on her breast. She still doesn't get the point of blogging. When she got tired of writing about her experiences of motherhood in Vermont, she and her Brit husband and two daughters moved to Burgundy and she blogged about motherhood in France. Now that she's back, she finds she's a more relaxed mother in redneck English than she was in broken French. She's a crap housewife in both languages. Her latest challenge involves getting her husband back into the country after a bitchy immigration official stole his green card at the U.S. embassy in Paris. Betsy writes for BabyCenter's Momformation blog and occasionally musters up random, angst-driven posts on her personal blog, Numbmum. She prefers that her friends don't read her blog because otherwise she has nothing to talk to them about.
