Robyn Welling is a freelance writer and humorist at Hollow Tree Ventures, where she isn't afraid to embarrass herself — and frequently does. In addition to her blog, she writes for CraftFail (where she's also Editor), NickMom, LifetimeMoms and The Huffington Post. She's been named a Must-Follow Humor Blog by BlogHer and co-authored multiple best-selling humor anthologies, yet her kids still don't think she's funny. Her goals include becoming independently wealthy, followed by world domination and getting her children to clean their rooms. Until then, she'll just fold laundry and write about the shortcuts she takes on her journey to becoming a somewhat passable wife, mother, and human being; if history is any guide, she'll miss the mark entirely. You can find her avoiding responsibility on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
What was your favorite toy as a child?
I loved LEGO, but our vast collection belonged to my brother so I could only play with the leftover pieces that he didn't want to use, and only when he said I could. So basically, it was exactly like playing LEGO with my kids now.
