Thank you for visiting the Life & Kids Section of Me, Myself and Jen. The heart and soul of my blog lives here. You’ll find every kind of post imaginable here, and it’s within these posts that I am at my most vulnerable. I share stories about my childhood, life and relationships that are told from my perspective. I do my very best not to share other people’s views or too much personal information about members of my family. They haven’t signed up to share their lives on social media – I have. What you’ll find contained in this, the largest section of my blog, is all from my heart. It ranges from silly to serious, from searching for advice and guidance to sharing what is working for me in life, and talking about my heartaches and pains. It’s the layers that make up Me, Myself and Jen.
I was thrilled and honored to be a blogger for Chicago Parent Magazine online for almost two years – and published in the magazine! HERE you can find all of the content that was written specifically for Chicago Parent, and republished on Me, Myself and Jen.
In THIS area, you’ll find posts related to everything about my family. From talking about the crazy things my kids do, to parenting issues, dealing with divorce, challenges and success of co-parenting, death, moving . . . . You name it and if it is related to something that my family deals with on a regular basis, it’s here. Like me spending a week calling all 42 school districts in DuPage County to assemble a comprehensive list of schools with Full Day Kindergarten. I was a momma on a mission!
If you wander over to THIS section, you’ll be let in to my personal thoughts and feelings about EVERYTHING. Friendships, politics, my family. Nothing is off-limits. This is my personal space that I use to share my deepest feelings and thoughts in. Be kind please.
I’ve had the opportunity to do an extensive amount of travel so far in my life. I was actually in college to become a travel agent when I was bit by the social media bug and went a completely different direction. I occasionally write about trips that I have taken in the past, places I would like to visit again, or road trips and vacations (or stay-cations!) that we take. You’ll find those posts HERE.
My family and I live in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago. We are very active in our community and attend / participate in lots of community sponsored activities. In addition, I’m a member of several in-real-life mom’s groups, (most notably the Naperville Moms Network) and participate in their community functions on a regular basis. You’ll find posts HERE relating to fun community events, great experiences that I (or we as a family) have had in our community, or favorite places and things that we enjoy on a regular basis.
Thank you for taking the time to look through the Life & Kids Section of Me, Myself and Jen. Are you a local business or family friendly attraction that is looking for social media exposure? Me, Myself and Jen is interested in working with Chicago area business and attractions to promote family friendly (and adult-only) things to do through our Social Media Event Promotion services at MM&J Consulting. Me, Myself and Jen is home to a blended family of six, with amazing kids ranging from age 20 to age 9. We are always looking for affordable vacation destinations that can accommodate our diverse bunch.
