Hey Mama, what’s your name and where are you from?
A: My name is Jenna, and I live in West Michigan!
How many kids do you have?
A: My husband and I have three girls.
What has been your favorite part about Mother’s Day?
A: I always tell my husband the one thing I want for Mother’s Day is a photo of me with the girls. We take a lot of photos on our front porch, and it’s so fun to see how we all grow and change year after year. But, as you know, taking a photo with 3 little ones all looking at the camera can be tricky!
How has your style changed since pregnancy?
A: I wouldn’t say my style has changed. I’ve always enjoyed dressing up, and still do, and did during my 3 pregnancies. I do spend A LOT more time in sweat pants and basic tees at home though!
What’s your biggest Mommy fashion tip?
A: While looking and feeling good is always important to me, when shopping for clothes, I’ve found myself in dressing rooms pretending to push a stroller. I ask myself, “Do I look ridiculous? Can I rock these shorts and chase kids around?” There’s a happy medium to being stylish but still practical. That’s where I try to be, as a mom!
What is your favorite PinkBlush piece and why?
A: Easy: The wrap dresses. It’s SO hard for me to find maxis that are a good length, and these are perfect for me! I love how many prints they come in, and I am not even the slightest bit embarrassed to say I have that dress in at least 3 prints!
What is your funniest Mom moment?
A: My husband and I were just looking through old videos of the girls the other night, and came across one we could NOT stop laughing at. I was in the bathroom, doing my hair, when I heard yelling coming from the bathroom in the hallway. I walk in, our middle daughter (10ish months at the time) was standing in the corner, looking at her hand. My oldest, who was almost 4 is very concerned and upset. I started recording, “Peyton, what happened?” “UGH! London reached in the toilet and touched my potty!”
Do you have a must have Mom essential?
A: My new mom essential would be a baby carrier or wrap! I absolutely loved baby wearing, and it gives you two free hands to get things done 😉
What is your proudest Mom moment?
A: I think the first time my oldest daughter sat down and read to her little sisters was the absolute best moment for me, so far, as a mother!
What is the best advice your Mother gave you?
A: “If your friends all jump off a bridge, would you?” I think this one is in the mom handbook, and I got it A LOT growing up. Back then, I’d roll my eyes and sarcastically say “yeah!” But now, I look back and I know she was challenging me to be unique, to stand on my own, and to get creative. I can proudly say I walk to the beat of my own drum, now!
What is your best advice to all the Mama’s out there?
A: Time is a thief and comparison is the thief of joy. Babies don’t keep, so snuggle those babies and enjoy them while they are tiny and carefree.
Best quote about motherhood, or a quote from yourself about motherhood.
A: I saw a graphic on Instagram the other day that was SO funny, because it was SO true: ‘Parenting is yelling, ‘You just had a snack!’ over and over again, until you give in and throw them another snack.”
What’s your handle?
