Hello, I’m Jill and I am starting this blog to document my life as a NYC mother of three-year-old twins. I called the blog Momamorphosis because never in my life have I had to change, adjust and evolve as quickly and as frequently as I have as a mom. I have transformed from a late-working, late-sleeping, weekday date-nighting, do-what-I-wanting, potty-mouth, kidless woman to a toy cleaning, grilled cheese making, stroller pushing, worry warting, stay-at-homing, potty training mom. In the span of a few weeks, I go from chicken-without-a-head to pseudo-expert, doling out advice on topics as thrilling as sleep training, getting your kids to poop in the toilet (bucket of dollar store prizes) and leaving them at school without feeling like you just stabbed them in the heart and said “Bye! I’m going running!” All of this makes for some great material so I figured, why not put it out there in a blog?
A little bit about me, my family and my background…
I am 34-years-old, originally from New Jersey, graduated from New York University and Harvard Business School and worked in real estate for the good part of the last 12 years. A few months ago, I said f-it and decided to stay at home with my kids. My, sweet, loving, awesome husband, Max, and I met eleven years ago and have been married since 2006. We have twin three-year-olds named Addy and Zack who both rock our world and suck the life out of us. I am as Type-A as you can get and drive my family nuts, but I love them to pieces and I make a slammin’ guacamole so they keep me around.
I hope you enjoy my adventures!
