Meet the family!
The Activist - Aisha is the oldest of 9 Lazy Kidz. She fights for social justice for the entitled. Her belief that she is entitled to everything resonates throughout her personality and actions. For Aisha there is no belief system that she has to start at the bottom. Aisha is entitled to everything simply because she’s Aisha
Ramon or “Mo” as we call him at home is actively studying the word “consequences”. For every action there is a reaction. Mo, is idealistic. He has the potential to be a super hero but will he use his powers for good or evil? Mo’s personality doesn’t believe in urgency which leads to the title of his sauce “Get Mo Movin” He is a warrior!
Martin Jr or “Timmy” as he is referred to around the house is energetic. Martin Jr. is a great athlete but let Timmy come around and he stirs things up and I mean really stirs things up. Timmy is Martin Jr’s name when he starts to get everyone going which leads to his sauce “Timmy Unleashed”. Watch out for Timmy.
Skye is the youngest of the 3 girls. She has a sweet personality, would do anything for anyone, is a daddy’s girl and always wants to please but… Let me or mother turn our backs and she will turn up the heat on her brothers causing trouble amongst the boys. Skye’s Sweet Apple Heat embodies all of this.
Miles or the genius as his brothers and sisters call him. Piano player and academic achiever but turn the TV on and he embodies lazy to the full extent. Miles studies on topics that continue to amaze us. He has a photographic memory and is one of the happiest kidz you will meet which is why we call him “Smiles” around the house.
Quintin is motivated. To be so young, the energy and enthusiasm he displays continues to amaze us. Quintin says he is going to grow up and be the greatest football player. He randomly lifts weights and does push up. Quintin is sweet but get on his bad side and he goes silent, watch out! Q’s Spicy Mango will put it on you!
Malik, one word “WOW”. Where does he come up with this stuff. Malik associates good behavior with some form of slush or treat. He once said “I was behaved for nothing, I don’t even get a treat, I wasted my time” Malik will throw one of his siblings under the bus to keep himself out of trouble. It’s all about “Leakie” as we call him at home.
Chance or Chanc-a-ford as we call him around the house initially he didn't say much but started most sentences with ughh because the other 8 kidz did most of the talking for him. After he was born, I thought his Mother had a growth on her leg but then I realized it was just Chance. He is the ultimate momma’s boy and baby of the family, for now.
*The foundation of our brand is pictured above. We are a brand family.
9 Lazy Kidz was founded by father, husband and brother Martin Ervin as a way to handle his grief over the passing of his sister Carmen. Feeling helpless and recognizing his own mortality, Martin founded 9 Lazy Kidz as a platform to share stories, pictures and memories so, his kidz would not be the left as he was with very few pictures or videos of his sister Carmen and their upbringing. The 9 Lazy Kidz platform soon morphed into a Brand. The first product born of the large family Brand was all natural, gluten free, no preservative hot sauce. The hot sauce became the “what” we do to those who watched the family grow but that is not why the Brand was started.
About the brand
The Brand was started with the concept and vision that it would serve as an outlet for folks to connect with us. Everyone has an aunt, uncle, friend, sister, brother, mother or father that can relate to or connect with the family and our journey. I’d be surprised if you didn’t. The “why” of our Brand is just that, the connection. 9 Lazy Kidz has become known as a hot sauce company but in essence we are a family with a story to tell that happens to develop products around the family and our story. Some would argue there are plenty of large families with a story to tell. I agree, there are many stories to be told but our story is one that has been filled with ups, downs, tragedy, victory, defeat, trials and a lifestyle that has seen small town living to affluence. We are not perfect but our Brand is our message. Simply put, I did it not knowing where it will lead but with a heart full of emotion, with a dream for each of my children, with memories to share and leave behind when my day comes; to hopefully have an impact by sharing my experiences with these 11 amazing lives through the 9 Lazy Kidz family Brand is why I continue to do this! So, yes there are a few large families out there but not with a hot sauce and I know just as you will learn by reading our blog, sharing our real stories, not just things that show us in a positive light but real, raw and uncut emotion that we are unique. We want you to enjoy our hot sauces as much as you do our stories. We are on a journey and my hope, my wish and desire is that you will follow along with us.
