I’m Jenny, a nurse, wife, and mother that is on a mission to connect and share with others online. I met my husband at 16, we finally married after 8 years, had two beautiful girls, and are living the comfortable middle class life.
I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Nursing and have since been working in my local emergency department for the past 4.5 years.
Now, although emergency medicine is amazing…most ER nurses will tell you it is physically, emotionally, and spiritually exhausting. Most days I literally have nothing left to give after work when I come home to my family…your probably thinking “then why do you do it?” Well…being able to help somebody when they’re experiencing the most vulnerable time in their life is totally rewarding…holding somebody’s hand as they take their last breath…handing a mother her newborn baby…crying with a parent after they lost their child…these are the moments that shape people’s lives. It has completely changed mine and opened my eyes to what really matters in life …but like a lot of nurses I have reached a point of burn out.
I love patient care, but I love my kids more and that’s when I started looking for other sources of income. I started this blog as a creative outlet and to share my knowledge with other parents.
Blogging is still very new to me so bear with me and my mistakes lol. I hope you enjoy what you read here and please share any tips, tricks, or information that you have!
