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 consider myself the most electrifying woman to ever grace the tobacco fields and cucumber patches of Richlands, North Carolina. My birth name is Tawana Humphrey, but because I am from a small town, no one knows anyone by their “real name.” A few of the names given to me are, Hot Hen, Hen Stren, Squirrel, and the most famous known by all of the town’s people, Puddin. As you can see Puddin seemed to offer the least amount of embarrassment, so there we have it. I have three children of my own, Soraya (Ray-Ray) 15, Shayvon (Scootie) 10, and Sikia (Kiki) 7. Also, I helped raise a cousin of mine that came to live with me when he was 12 years old. Even though there is only an eight year difference between us two, I still feel like he is my child. My children considers him as their big brother which help keep those motherly feelings stirred up. Being a mother of three and living here in Richlands, we stay very busy participating in the Onslow County Recreational programs. Almost year round, my life is consumed with baseball/ softball jersey’s, basketball uniforms, and football pads. My daughter Kiki is the only girl in the entire flag football league! I was a little weary about her playing at first. I was just hoping that she would get on a team that look past the fact that she was a girl. Much to my surprise, she did! Our season is almost up, so I will definitely keep you all posted on how the season ends!
