Hi, I’m Jen. I’m a thirty something mom of two boys who snacks on fruit peels, and is trying to raise happy, healthy kids who aren’t jerks. I rely far too much on dry shampoo and jam out to Justin Bieber tunes when I need to hunker down and get things done (not even ashamed).
In southern California, I live with my boyfriend/life partner (since 2010), Josh and our sons, Ryder and Maddux. I get overly excited when I cook something great or figure out general life things so I thought I would create a blog as an outlet for my excitement. Someday, hopefully, my kids will enjoy reading since they are my reason for really growing up.
I cook a lot of paleo recipes because I like the way eating natural foods make me feel (more on that here). I share silly life experiences because we all need a laugh sometimes. You’ll find tips on kid things and lots of paleo food things here. I love to cook and experiment with different recipes and occasionally come up with my own recipes.
I share tips I come across as I encounter them-I’m figuring out how to be 30. I’m a kind of sort of natural mom, but I hate when my brain makes me feel guilty for storing my food in a plastic dish or when I use something other than coconut oil on my baby’s butt for his diaper rash. I’d like to think I have a slightly practical approach to this healthy thing. Though I am sure I am more extreme than many.
I want to have a space here where we can share adventures and discuss things we learn as we grow. You know, adulting is really hard and when we adult well, we need to feel good about it.
I hope my little piece of internet makes you smile and provides you with tips to solve adulting’s challenges. Happy reading and happy adult-ing! I hope you find something rad here.
