Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s…….. now wait a minute, who made THAT mess!
Christian and Kate Basi met in the choir at the Newman Center in Columbia in 1995. He proposed to her in front of God and everyone three years later, after Communion at Sunday Mass–and people still stop them in the store to say “I was there when you got engaged!”
Following a three-year battle with infertility, the kids arrived in quick succession. These days Christian and Kate head up a family of unconventional superheroes: four kids who can reduce people to piles of goo just by batting their big brown eyes, who can yell talk 24/7 without rest and always require a response, who can wrap the hardest-hearted grump around their cute little fingers, and whose imaginations know no bounds.
In “real life,” Christian works at the university, and Kate is a freelance writer who works from home, surrounded by chaos cute kids. The Basis moonlight as superhero parents by fixing toys no matter how many times they break, finding everything the kids lose (well, almost everything), playing music for weddings, teaching music lessons, leading a church choir, advocating for special needs, and oh yes, by teaching NFP in their oh-so-ample spare time.
Basi Avengers! ASSEMBLE!!!!
(Yes, we are this cheesy in real life. That’s what makes us such fun NFP teachers. 🙂 )
