"Oh Brother!" Comic Strip Winner: 5 Questions for Chiara

Recently, Role Mommy hosted the "Is Your Kid A Character Contest" on behalf of the nationally syndicated comic strip, "Oh, Brother!"  With the help of a panel of esteemed blogging mom judges, one lucky child won the chance to be featured in an Oh, Brother! comic strip panel.  After receiving dozens of entries from parents across the country, the winning story came from Chiara, a 7 year old from Columbia, MO whose mom shared the following funny tidbit about her daughter:

"My kid is a character because she can always turn a bad situation into a good one. Her random funniness is what gets me through my day. Last week we were talking and she said "Mom I'm never getting married," and I asked her why and she said "Because boys like to take your paycheck and play video games all day and I don't have time for it, Mom!'"

Chiara's official debut as an "Oh, Brother!" comic strip character appeared this week online at and in newspapers nationwide. Take a look...
