Madison (my tot) and I have a goal to meet 365 Moms & their tots.

Tot Mom #31

Jennifer & Elaina — Active & Adorable

Jennifer is from Northern New York and lived there until she attended college in Canada, where she earned a Biology degree. She met her husband, Jeff, at a party in college and the two have been inseparable since. After college they wanted to move somewhere warmer, so they went to Winston Salem, where Jennifer attended law school. The two got married four years ago, after she graduated with her Law degree and moved to Charlotte for her husband to pursue his career in Mechanical Engineering. Jennifer went into Real Estate and obtained her job until she had Elaina. As most stay at home moms say, “I missed my baby!” She and Jeff love to be outdoors and enjoy hiking, camping, and playing soccer together. Every fall, they anxiously wait for their season tickets for the Wake Forest football games. When these two sports lovers have a chance to unwind and dine, their favorite place to go is Birkdale Village. Jennifer’s hobbies consist of running, playing soccer, and snow skiing. She enjoys being active and is looking forward to being more active as she continues to get in shape after having her baby. In fact, she signed up for Operation Bootcamp, where she was engaging in hard core working out from 5:30-6:30 in the morning. I’m all for being in shape, but Jen, I think everyone will agree with me on this one when I say, “You’re crazy!”

Elaina is thirteen months old and loves to eat! She also enjoys playing in water, swimming, and being outside. Her new favorite thing to do is play with Tobin, her dog. She will actually sit on Tobin while watching television. Elaina also likes to read books, especially books with dogs, or any animals really. Now that she can walk, Elaina is becoming more active and rambunctious, like most toddlers. While at Discovery Place, Elaina thinks it is cute and funny to run away from mommy. It is time to teach Elaina, “Stranger Danger”!

The hardest thing about being a Tot Mom is finding ways to keep your tot entertained. She becomes easily bored with the toys at home, so going out is a must. The best thing is being able to spend time with her. Seeing her laugh at things she has never seen is the greatest joy.
