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.

My relationships with my girlfriends are wonderful. They have kids, they get it. They get that in the middle of our conversation, I may have to run into the other room and kiss a booboo, or change a dirty diaper. But, more often than not, we never do get to finish that conversation, or our conversation changes to be all about the kids. But, ...

Do you have a tendency to walk into the gym and go right to the treadmill? Do you do it because you really want to run, or are you just wary of some of the other gym equipment?

When people visit my home, I want them to know that it's a kids' home but not because there are toys and kids gear EVERYWHERE. It should be clear that kids can thrive and are welcome here, but be distinctively NOT a daycare center! I wanted my kids to feel a sense of pride and ...
