About Me

I am Jen and this is my blog.

Hello!  I’m so glad you stopped by. I started this blog about six years ago as a means to share things that I find inspiring and to keep family abreast on the new baby in our lives. After my second kiddo arrived, my blog quickly transformed in to an online journal in which majority of the posts are spoken to them.

Becoming a parent was frightening and exciting all at the same time and nothing I had ever experienced even came close to the day-to-day hoopla I was now experiencing. I started documenting my experiences as a mother because a great deal of what I was dealing with seemed too ridiculous not to share. I also grew tired of hearing my parents share the same five stories over and over about my childhood and was fearful that one day, that would be me–my children’s entire childhood reduced to a handful of stories.

Now that both kids are in school, I’m hoping to write more, go to the bathroom without intrusion and to discover new and great things and share them with all of you. If you are impatient like I am, you can check out my Pinterest page for the time being–I promise, I have lots of inspiring things there.

Ultimately, my goal is to one day transform these posts in to a book for my kids so they can look back at their childhood with fondness or with solid proof that I was an ill-prepared, slightly aloof, sarcastic with a knack for crazy, mother.  Either way, I hope you enjoy perusing the site and hopefully my daily trials and tribulations will put a smile on your face.

I really enjoy receiving mail as well, so if you would like to drop me a line or have a question, you can email me at sparks.jen@gmail.com

Thanks for stopping by!
