Jennifer Pearce

Hi there! My name is Jennifer and I am one of the newest members to MomTalk and JustKiddin'. I am a 40-year-old mother who works outside the home. I live with my husband of eleven years and our two young daughters. After being a stay-at-home-mother for six years, I re-entered the workforce when my husband was briefly unemployed. When he returned to work, I chose to keep working due to economics and the age of my daughters at the time. I now work as the advertising manager of a community newspaper and appreciate how working has gotten me much more involved in my community. However, I often miss the opportunity to spend more time with my daughters, or to volunteer more time with their school and activities. My older daughter is a 10-year-old fourth grader, and my younger daughter is a 6-year-old kindergartener. Their many activities and my husband’s complicated work schedule make scheduling our number one family challenge. He works a rotating shift in a retail store that includes many nights and weekends. We struggle to preserve our time together as a family and make the most of it, while still finding time to accomplish our individual goals and pursue our favorite interests. My interests include reading, writing and photography. I love taking family photos and completed a Project 365 in 2010, taking a photo a day for the year. It was a wonderful experience to document our life for a year and appreciate all the little pieces of it. I am currently working to put the 365 pictures into a scrapbook…if I can just find the time. I look forward to sharing our journey with you here on JustKiddin'!

I am currently a military wife and mother of 3 children. Our children are 2 , 6 & 11 years old. I’m blessed to be able to stay at home with my children. I have always done some freelance writing and side jobs to earn a little money to help out and maintain my sanity. I enjoy many hobbies including reading, re-decorating, blogging to journal our crazy life, taking photographs, carpentry, creating and playing with my kids. I spend my days volunteering at my children’s school, chasing our ever mobile infant who is successfully trying to keep up with her older siblings. I love participating in local groups and communities and have been a Girl Scout leader locally, taught Kindermusik, attend library story times, playgroups, started a Mother Daughter Book Club, and I'm involved with our church. I love being a mom even though I often feel like I'm treading water in unchartered territory. I love that each child is unique and that I constantly am kept on my toes! I love people and I love learning from others.
