I am Jen.
I am 35 years old.
I am the proud mother of this incredible little boy.
We cloth diaper.
Breastfeeding is still going strong. (Oh, the horror!)
We are Gluten Free.
We are Vegetarian. (But eat seafood on occasion)
I practice peaceful parenting (and it DEFINITELY takes practice)
We both wear our babies. . .
And . . .
I am a single mom.
I work full time.
My work takes me all over the Midwest, and sometimes farther.
I have perfected the art of pumping on the go.
I have an AMAZING support system.
My son LOVES his nanny. (and so do I)
I planned to be happily married. Twice.
I planned to be living in Arizona, enjoying the most beautiful weather all year 'round.
I planned to be done having babies by 30.
The universe had a different plan.
This is not the life I planned. This is not the life that I (intentionally) chose. This life is better than I could have ever imagined, and sometimes it takes a while after your "plan" crashes and burns, before you realize that even the challenges in life are part of a much larger plan.
This is not what I expected . . . It's more.
I love my life.
