Describe yourself in 30 words or less…my worst nightmare. Introducing yourself to the internet…not easy. Some of the questions going through my mind: What do people want to know? Am I boring? Is anyone going to get my jokes? It just goes on and on…I’m like an episode of Seinfeld. I wrote this introduction at least ten times and then decided to just keep it real.
My name is Jennifer. I’m a mother of two and wife to one. Each day, I set out on a new adventure teaching 20 kindergarten students. My car’s a mess, but I’m a master multitasker. I try to make each moment count and find joy in simple things. I strive for balance in my life (strive is the key word here, folks…). Finding time for date night with Hubby and dinner out with the girls are absolute musts, but I also enjoy spending a cozy evening on the couch drinking wine…I mean tea.
Why A Child’s Tabletop? I’ve always loved working at a table. As a child, I’d create with paint and textiles. As an adult I love to experiment with watercolour and calligraphy. I wanted to created a place where a collection of tabletop activities could be found. Specifically, delightfully simple tabletop activities that might serve as inspiration for other mothers and teachers, or anyone else who loves to watch the creativity of young children unfold.
