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.
