Bio: Jen is a nerdy mama with a touch of OCD and a penchant for snarkiness. Before she joined the corporate world in order to put food on the table, she obtained a Social Work degree in order to save the world and hug all the trees. Currently, she works full-time from home and puts her degree to good use in designing online training programs for a large insurance company. Jen originally hails from rural northwest Pennsylvania, where “creek” is pronounced “crick” and cow tipping is an accepted social activity. Jen lives in Simsbury with her husband and two little boys, who are well on their way to being the best-documented children in history (30K+ photos and counting).
Tip for Other Working Mamas: I have this taped to my fridge to prevent power struggles at mealtimes: “Without a doubt, it is the parents’ only responsibility to offer a variety of healthy foods. It is up to the child to choose among these foods what he eats and how much.” — from My Child Won’t Eat: How to Enjoy Mealtimes Without Worry by Carlos Gonzales.
