I am Jennifer.
Married to Chris with three boys. Ian (18), Hugh (15), and Malcolm (12).
I am Emily.
Married to Dave with two boys, Noah (11) and Chase (9).
And we are Mothers of Brothers.
Welcome to our world! And hopefully your world, too!
This is what happens when two like-minded Moms, who share remarkably similar careers and all male families, find themselves sitting across from one another, scheming their next big thing. While we are indeed the MoB, the moniker defines only a small, albeit important piece of who we are. We are women whose children need us less for their survival and more for their “thrival” (We know this isn’t a word) We’ll be writing about life in this blog, general musings on modern existence, and those universal moments that we all share from time to time.
You don’t need to be a mother of brothers to get it.
It’s all about perspective and you will get a sampling here. Emily is Jewish, Jennifer is Presbyterian. We both live through BIG scary birthdays last year. (E turned 40, J turned 50).
We are “professional communicators” by trade and writers by desire. In this capacity, we have historically engaged in a little too much groveling. There will be no groveling here. Just us. And you.
We’ll co-host MoB, taking turns writing posts. You may hear from one of us two days in a row, if we have something to say that just can’t wait or one of the brothers was in the emergency room all night. Comments are welcome at all time.
Much love to our “all our guys” for their support as we embark.It is clearly a journey.
It is clearly a journey.
