I’m kind of a big deal.

Welcome to mommablogsalot.com, my little corner of the blogiverse. If this is your first time here, let me introduce myself and my blog and tell you a little bit more about us:

Me : Jen, age %*&^#

My name is Jen and I am the extremely proud momma to two slightly larger than little kids, the dog mom to one neurotic one-eyed dog with no end of health issues and the wife to a very tall bearded fellow who does most of the grown uping in our family but also spends a ton of time playing video games with the kids for good measure.

My husband and I moved from New England to Wisconsin about nine years ago and we’re starting to wonder if we’ve been here too long to call ourselves new in town. Also are we old now? How can we tell for sure and what does that mean? Can I still wear punny t-shirts and watch tween romance movies? Am I supposed to have a moisturizing regimen yet? I’m not sure.

MM, Age 12

My eldest kiddo (referred to here as “MM”) is twelve years old which means he’s almost as tall as his mom, he’s obsessed with Minecraft  and Dan TDM, and he’s officially old enough to know that school is boring and most of life’s situations require an eye roll. He’s a big help with yard work and surprisingly sweet for a kid his age, imo.

BB, Age 8

Then there’s my daughter, a feisty diva child of eight years (known here as “BB”) who is never not singing (I mean seriously guys, never). She loves manga and unicorns and all the sparkly things in life. She runs on two moods: elated and devastated and I’m pretty sure I’m raising the next Anne of Green Gables.

(read more about BB here).

Then there’s me. I’m a fangirling super mom. I spend my time volunteering at my kids school (like a lot), talking friends into going out for coffee with me, cooking up quasi-healthy dinners for the family, taking 8 million pictures, writing, reading, gaming and watching varying levels of quality television. I love stories in all forms and enjoy as many of them as I can find whether in the form of a book, movie, television show or good song.

As my blog’s name suggests, I am an avid blogger. You can find me writing about everything from parenting to celebrity gossip, favorite recipes, my latest book obsessions and more.

  1. Jen E –

    Thank you for reviewing Finding Aster. I am the publicist at Inkwater Press, the publisher of the book. We’ll be posting a blog about this review and linking to your site, a good thing to help boost you search ranking.

    Would be open to receiving any more books that relate to parenting or the other interested you’ve indicated on your site?

    At this point we don’t have anything that would be appropriate, but we are always publishing new books.

    Thank you again for the review,
    Steve Thieme

  2. Ran across you blog by chance and have enjoyed “spending time with you” I to have a blog about being a mom although my friends tell me I am a bit of an over achiever in that area. I love comments but never get any so—-please just go and say something—anything I am in need of some reassurance.

  3. This is SO ME too! “I’m kind of a homebody trapped with a heart that starves for travel. So I’m always yearning to either sit at home with a good book or run off to Rome, Maine or Papau New Guinea at the last minute (admittedly, I usually end up doing the first).”

  4. I find your About Me to be put together lovely; its style of beginning with “I’m the girl…” makes me feel like “you’re the girl…who I know very well just from reading several choosy (used to mean oddly particular) sentences about. Also, I relate with the books—you can never have too many!

    Lovely blog, glad I saw it on my list of links which brought people to my site.
