Recently I’ve had some interest from readers about my steamy love life. OK, so I’m lying about the “steamy” part but it looks as though it’s time for the prequel. So here’s the little story of how Lori and Big Daddy P met, fell in love, had a couple of kids and built a home sweet home.
Venice Beach, 1995
At the totally mature age of 17, I had just graduated high school and was ready to start college in the fall. I met Big Daddy P, who was really just P back then or “Peaches” as I called him. He was way sexy at 18 years old and played the sexy lead guitar in the infamous or un-famous sexy band, Dakota Blue. Sizzle! I was your average nice girl and he was your regular bad boy. And, like a moth to a flame baby, we clicked…err, I clicked with him.
We first met through friends at a coffee shop and he ignored me. I fell in love.
We met a few more times with our friends and he ignored me some more. I fell in love some more.
Finally, after three agonizing weeks of like-liking him, he kissed me. Like OMG!
I immediately raced home to call my bestie from a land line (pre cell phone days) and spill it, “Like oh my God, he kissed me!” Her response, “Aww, cute. Date him for the summer; you can meet a college boy in the fall.” And so our romance began only I didn’t dump him in the fall, I hung on tight, like a moth to a flame baby. We married as soon just as I graduated 4 years later at the totally mature age of 22.
The band broke up after we got married because I was a Yoko. Nah, actually Peaches left the band to pursue big Engineering dreams because everybody knows engineers are way hotter than rock stars.
In the 5 years that followed we got a cat, bought a house, got rid of the cat, sold a house, bought another house, suffered a miscarriage and were ultimately blessed with Little BooBoo. It was then that happily ever after got even happier.

Since then, we’ve been busy pursuing personal dreams and raising some super fantastic boys who serve as my endless inspiration.
We have been married 11 years and mommyfriend.com is the first thing Big Daddy P and I have ever joined forces in creating together, aside from our boys that is, hee hee. Our little blog, written by me, illustrated by Big Daddy P and inspired by our kids, it is truly a family affair.
With that, welcome to our family! You are our guest and we hope you keep coming back for more, like a moth to a flame baby.
