I have been questioning everything I know about parenting lately. I for one need to learn to step back a bit and pop the bubble. 
As a child I remember thinking that by the time I became an adult things would be so different in the world. I imagined we would have flying cars and houses that appeared to be right out of an episode of The Jetsons. While we...

Not every trip to the playground is fun. Trust me. 
If you didn’t already know the winter here in the Northeast was brutal this year. BRUTAL.  We had more snow than we knew what to do with. Quite literally we ran out of places to put the white stuff and the temperatures were s...

10 Quotes from my son that scare the crap out of me
Today I am honored to have Clint Edwards of   No Idea What I'm Doing: A Daddy Blog  as my guest. If you don't know him you should head over to his blog and get to know him. Clint was nice enough to have me over on his site on Friday. We may have gotten into...

Oh how I have been there! Love this via +Scary Mommy 
My husband is running late. 10 minutes? 15? An hour? If it's an hour I will lock myself in the bathroom with the 1-year-old; he likes toilets. The other kids will just have to not kill each other.

#ItsOnUs and I promise to do my part.
I am a mom. I was once a little girl who grew into an awkward teenager and eventually into a confident woman. I am now a mom of two young boys. If I do nothing else right in this life I promise you this....

Anyone who has ever had a toddler can relate to this. 
The other day a friend apologized to me on Facebook for running up to me at a swim meet asking me a question and running away to chase her two year old. She was worried I thought she had been rude. After reading what she wrote I immediately had to think…wait when did she ask me a question, ...

The days can feel long but I know that one day these will be the days I miss the most. I'm going to hold onto them for as long as I can. 
I remember the day you were both born like it was yesterday. I remember the feeling of overwhelming joy colliding with fear all at once. I remember the sound of your first cry and the feeling of your skin against mine for the first time, and thinking...

I never realized that my boys were listening to me every time I used the 'F' word.  My post about the day I stopped using it is up on +The Huffington Post  today.
I have often thought to myself that if I ever have a daughter, I would really have to watch how much I complain about my body. The last thing I would want is for her to grow up with a warped body image. I never once thought about what it could be doi...

Story
Tagline
Stay at home mom to two energy filled, crazy, lovable boys. Traded in my salary to raise my children. They outsmart me daily. In my defense it's probably the lack of sleep.
Introduction
Before having children Jennifer thought being a stay at home mom would be a walk in the park. Now that she's doing it she realizes it's more like a run in a zoo (without cages for the animals). She traded in her salary for sloppy kisses, corporate lunches for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and sales meetings for finger painting sessions. Her two boys outsmart her on a daily basis although in her defense it could be the lack of sleep. She writes to stay sane on her blog Outsmarted Mommy and has been featured on Mamapedia, Scary Mommy and iVillage Australia. She is also a contributor for Felicity Huffman’s What The Flicka?  Her children are not the least bit impressed they just want to know what's for dinner.  You can follow their journey at Outsmarted Mommy, on Twitter as @outsmartedmommy or on Facebook.
