I’d like to introduce our next Best Mom Ever — Jen!
Mom, wife and business owner, Jen is one busy woman! But no matter what, she always makes it look like fun.
Tell us a little about your family.
I live with my husband and our 3 kids aged 9, 10 and 12.
Tell us about yourself and your work.
We live on a horse farm, I breed and ride horses and am also a farrier (trimming and shoeing horses feet).
What do you and your family do for fun?
We don’t go places or do a whole lot of interesting things, but we always have fun. We move at a leisurely pace.
Describe a typical day in your home.
It’s summer now, so I get up (at my usual 6:30) feed cats and dog and horses. Eventually kids roll out of bed and forage for some breakfast and watch some TV or play some games or head outside and explore. That usually takes up most of the morning, we have lunch and then more of the same. My youngest loves art, so she can be found wherever the paper and pencils are. My oldest is usually on skype with her friends and my son(middle child) is either playing with his little sister or on the computer. By dinner we are all usually tired and hanging out quietly or asleep by 8.
What is the #1 thing you want your children to have learned by the time they become adults?
How good it feels to help others.
What advice do you wish you had been given before becoming a mom?
Always believe that you know how to raise your own child better then anyone else. Dont let someone tell you that you are doing it wrong.
Thank you for allowing us a glimpse into your life and family, Jen!
