What is Fun As You Grow?

I have long been waiting for the moment when adulting kicks in. You know, all that responsibility and seriousness. Every birthday I’m getting older and I celebrate with another fine line or wrinkle, but I still feel like a kid!

Fun As You Grow is a way for me to share some of the fun things our family enjoys, including; great places to visit, exciting things to do, and some wonderful entertainment.

The purpose is for you to take something away from this place and to share it with your family!

Kids of all ages are welcome!

The Boss Lady.

Who are you?

Although I prefer to be called Jenny, my mother still calls me Jennifer Lynn when she’s angry. I’ll admit that I’m in my thirties, although I make no promises to acknowledge when I’m in my forties.

On my wall of fame are two undergraduate degrees in art that I earned in 2002 and 2003, but I’ve never really used professionally. In my younger days I was a teacher of science, Spanish, music, and advanced algebra. I even worked on Capitol Hill as a Legislative Assistant specializing in education.

Now, my job is MOM… and I’m very tired. All the time.

The Family.

Who are those badly drawn stick people?

My husband and I met in 2004 through eHarmony. We married in 2008 and keep anxiously asking one another if we look like we’re still in our mid-20’s. He’s the one that puts things on the top shelf when our little humans aren’t playing nice with their toys and I wipe bums.

I negotiate food consumption, speak in funny voices to calm tantrums, and wipe bums. Our 9yo is homeschooled although sometimes I wonder who is really teaching who. That dude is smart! We added a sister to our family in June 2016 who is every bit as silly as her brother. Also, she’s always telling us what to do.

We are first time Walt Disney World Annual Pass Holders too. I love the Disney atmosphere, the kids love the rides, and my husband loves complaining about the prices!


Hello. My name is Jenny!

My journey began through motherhood began unexpectedly on September 12, 2010 when I discovered I wasn’t just pregnant, but I was five months pregnant. I spent the next four months trying to prepare for raising a little human. Our son arrived on January 13, 2011 and took all of his genes from my husband. Although others assured me that mothers always know exactly what to do, I guess I’m just not one of those mothers.

Although I was a teacher for five years before working in the ruthless world of politics for another five, being a mom has always been my most important job ever! I tried to domesticate myself, but I’m just too nerdy to be one of those moms. I love movies, Disney, pop culture, and all things entertainment.

I do a lot of multitasking these days; trying to understand why I can never go to the bathroom alone and generally exercising caution in the danger zone surrounding my child.

And, of course, I blog.

I hope you enjoy what I have to share with you and participate in some of the conversations happening here.

Thanks for visiting, and come back again soon!
