Hi! I’m Shawna, and welcome to That Mom Lady! I’m mom to two little boys who are cute, sweet, and stinky-just how I like them! I am a full-time mom having put my career as a school counselor on pause. You’d think having some counseling experience in my back pocket would help me with this whole parenting thing, but yeah, not so much.
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. Judge me all you want, I make no apologies. 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.
