About Crazy Like a Mom
Crazy mom Danielle Veith has two kids—an 8-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son—who are happier than she could ever have imagined.
Being a stay-at-home mom makes her feel totally insane, but also lucky, constantly amazed and full of wonder. Naps used to keep her sane, but now that the kids are older, it's really only other moms.
Before the babies, she lived in Brooklyn and had a real grown-up life that included working in the Creative Writing Program at NYU, at The Nation magazine and at Viking-Penguin Books. She has also worked for the National Partnership for Women and Families. She volunteers for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and everything else anyone asks her to do for her children, because she is still learning to say no.
With her ever-loving husband and children, she now lives in the Washington DC metro area, and puts her MFA in poetry to good use writing in her head when no one's screaming.
