"I love you!"
"I love chicken nuggets."

Hi, I'm Mikli! Once upon a time, I had a little boy. Motherhood began young; I was pregnant at 19, "mommy!" at 20, and now being outsmarted by my favorite weirdo at 25!

Six years ago, I had no idea what was happening. Six years later ... okay, I still have no idea what's happening! 

But then again, what's motherhood if not a messy and a constant adventure of figuring things out?

.... and butt-wiping, and answering very loud, very awkward, and very public questions, and tweeting things your kid says because you can't make that shit up?

Here is a place for stories: funny stories, frustrated stories, confused stories, I-might-have-actually-learned-something stories - and your stories! Share away! Frazzled loves company!

Welcome in, enjoy your stay, and... would you happen to have extra baby wipes?

(Frequently Asked) Questions

Even if no one's asking, I'll answer them anyway!

Q. What's a stesha?

A. It me! My full name is Ma. Stesha-Mikli Feria Jorge (let's go, SEO, push down my embarrassing MySpace account and bring this up to page 1 of Google!). I thought Stesha wasn't getting nearly as much love as Mikli in everyday life, so I decided to use her as my blog name!


Q. didn't you have an old blog? Where'd it go? Are your old entries gone???

A. I'm a super pack-rat who doesn't delete anything. It's here >> behindthescenes.stesha.org << and everything is still as I left it. Of course all the social media links to my old entries are now broken, but adding a quick "behindthescenes." (with the dot) before the URL should fix it!


Q. I can't think of any more questions?

A. Juuuust in case you do think of one, I'm only a tweet or an email away! ♥︎ Send jer queries to @hiddenmikli or mikli@stesha.org
