Hi! I’m Shawna, and welcome to That Mom Lady! I’m the working mom to a sweet and wild little Calvin-complete with his own stuffed tiger (although he prefers his sock monkey). I’m a school counselor by day and a semi-clueless wife and mom on nights and weekends. I’m not ashamed to admit that I
might definitely have an addiction to McDonald’s pop (yes, I say “pop”) or that I’ve never seen the following movies: The Notebook, E.T., Star Wars, Back to the Future, or Jurassic Park. I also love my LL Bean slippers, a really good bourbon, and sitting alone quietly.
This might actually make me an old man.
About the Blog:
I’ve always loved the written word and came home from kindergarten pissed off because the teacher didn’t teach me how to read. Since then, I’ve settled down a bit, but always had a passion for reading and writing. I even went to writing camp as a teen. (No, I didn’t just make that up.) I’ve blogged off and on since 2007, beginning with my travels abroad and later my experience of being diagnosed and treated for Stage One Breast Cancer. I began That Mom Lady as a way to connect with other parents and to deal with my own parenting struggles.
My parenting pieces have been featured on Scary Mommy, Mamalode, and The Mighty. Be sure to check them out!
