MEET MILK+CONFETTI MOM: JENNIFER HOUSE
TELL US ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
I've been married for 12 years to my husband Jeff, and we have three kids. We were brave enough to have 3 kids, and our family is now complete! It includes 9 year old Nolan, 5 year old Norah and a 2 year old boy named Arden.
WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST MOM MOMENT AS OF DATE?
The proudest moments of my whole life are the birth of each child. There's nothing better than the moment you finally get to meet your baby, after that long hard journey of carrying them and marathon deliveries! All three of my babies were born at home, and gave me a new appreciation of the ability of what female human bodies can accomplish.
WHAT WAS YOUR GREATEST CHALLENGE AS A MOM?
Oh there are many, which nobody can prepare you for! I think it's been hardest for me not to be in full control and living in occasional mess and chaos. I'm getting better at letting that go, but you certainly can't have full control your kids as much as you may try...
WHAT IS ONE THING ABOUT YOUR LIFE/SELF/CHARACTER, THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO PASS ONTO YOUR CHILDREN?
I hope they all have my strong work ethics. But still be chill enough to take time to relax and enjoy life!
WHEN THE KID(S) GO TO BED, WHAT GUILTY PLEASURES TO YOU LIKE TO INDULGE IN?
HOW WAS BEING A MOTHER MADE YOU STRONGER?
There's no harder job in the world - as all moms know! It's been a humbling experience, but we're doing it. Go moms!! Being a mom has also vastly increased the amount of love in my life <3
