TripleZmom is my second nom d'internet. Way back in 2007, I initially called myself "Jerseygirl89" because I didn't know anything about branding, Twitter handles or the fact that calling myself a "girl" after the age of 40 would feel icky. Also I was kinda homesick for Jersey.
I used to teach elementary school in a rough neighborhood in Kansas City, but now I'm back in my home state of New Jersey raising Ironflower (2004), Lovebug (2006) and Hugmonkey (2008) and writing crap on the internet. The neighborhood I live in with my husband Hot Guy and the kids is the complete opposite of where I used to teach, but pretty close to where I grew up.
I usually duck when I see people I went to high school with.
I usually don't end sentences with prepositions.
I have been writing for ever, but it wasn't until I started editing other people's stuff that I had the nerve to put my own stuff out there. Not that an obscure parenting blog is the same as standing up in front of a couple hundred of people and reading my work, but it's better than shoving it all into a drawer. Right?
