Iwanted to share this with those of you who don't know who Jen Singer is.
I love this blog and if anyone can get me laughing or crying, it is Jen Singer.
Here is her bio, but once you check out her blog - you will be hooked as I am.
Jen Singer is a suburban mom of two boys who talk to her through the bathroom door. She is the blogger behind Good Housekeeping's Good Grief! Mom of Tweens blog
and the creator of mommasaid.net
, a Forbes
Best of the Web community for mothers around the world who need some comic relief now and then. She's the author of You're a Good Mom (and Your Kids Aren't So Bad Either)
and 14 Hours 'Til Bedtime
. Her humor has appeared in American Baby, Family Circle, The New York Times, Parenting, Parents, Woman's Day
, and Chicken Soup for Every Mom's Soul
. She is also the moderator of the Parenting with Cancer message boards for Planet Cancer. During school hours, she works feverishly on her third book, though sometimes, she admits, she just stares out the window.
Jen is the creator of Please Take My Children to Work Day
, a holiday for stay-at-home moms celebrated on the last Monday of each June; it has been officially proclaimed by governors in several states. Named a Swiffer Amazing Woman of the Year, she got to fly to L.A. to have her picture taken by Hollywood paparazzi alongside Cindy Crawford. (That sort of thing almost never happens at her house.)
She is a Huggies PULL-UPSŪ Potty Training Partner, a boys' soccer coach, and a serial class mom. She has appeared on ABC's World News Now
, NBC News
, and CBS's The Early Show
, numerous local news programs along the East Coast, and several Canadian TV shows.
Before she began taking phone messages in chalk on the driveway, she wrote about Generation X in Entrepreneur, Home Office Computing
, and the Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times
, and Miami Herald
. She co-produced a comic strip about working from home that appeared in Entrepreneur's Home Office
. She majored in mass communication with a concentration in advertising at Boston University, where she also played a pretty tough fullback for the women's soccer team.
She lives in northern New Jersey with her husband, Pete, and their sons, Nicholas, 11, and Christopher, 9, who all hang their jackets on the kitchen chairs even though the closet is, what, about five feet away? The thought of having tweens living under her roof frightens her almost as much as spiders.
