Jeanna Strassburg

Jeanna Strassburg is a wife, and mother of three, who enjoys kitchen dance parties and summer time! Jeanna received her bachelor’s degree in Education from Brigham Young University-Idaho in April of 2007. She enjoys spending her time cooking, cleaning and tending to the proper duties of a stay at home mother… NOPE! Truthfully, she enjoys eating the food, but not making it or cleaning up after it. She likes to have a clean home, but loathes laundry and dishes. Loves her children, but could do without, meltdowns, crying and sibling rivalry! She is jealous of her daughter Grace’s beautiful long hair, her son Hudson’s reckless abandon, and her daughter Tessa’s charm and worries constantly that she may not be the one in charge.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies give up the bottle entirely by about age 1, and if not, no later than 18 months. Well, my 18 month old LOVES her bottle. And I mean, she LOOOOOVES it. More than me, more than just about anything else. In fact, when I drop her off at the child watch to work out, the first thing the care ...

Oh man, do I love summer. I love everything that comes with it: fun, family, sunshine, relaxing by the poolside. Even food tastes better in the summer. What I love most about it is all the fresh, wonderfully healthy, and readily available local produce!!! Our family is a member of our local CSA. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture.

If there’s one thing I don’t have extra of, being a mom with young kids, it’s expendable income. (Extra weight, diapers, snotty noses? Of those I have plenty!) Between feeding, clothing, diapering, and educating my three young kids, my wallet is a little lighter than my mid-section. I’d love to join a gym with a child-care, but it’s just ...

Isn't going out to dinner such a nice treat? Relaxing after a long week, really connecting with your spouse over a meal that you don't have to make, and enjoying the quiet solitude of... I'm sorry, I can't even finish that sentence. It's just that it was supposed to be a joke about how parents don't get to have a quiet night out once the baby ...

When my daughter was born I got baby blankets galore! Everyone was so generous! I had beautiful receiving blankets, knit blankets, homemade quilts. Basically, I had one baby and probably 50 blankets. They were all soft and cozy and took up a ton of space. Once she got a little bigger, most of ...
