I’m Tiffany, mother of 3 and wife of 1. Not only am I shaping the minds of my own flesh and blood, I help cultivate the minds of other people’s children everyday…as 5th grade Reading teacher. Sure I deal with the usual parenting, marriage, and family woes. However, my battle is a little different because I’m juggling life with a mental illness.
The chronicling of my story in Jellies (for my daughters Jia-4 and Jae-1) and Bean (for my son Jordan-4) is inspired through day-to-day life. Some days I pat myself on the back because I feel like “I got it right!” Other days, I want nothing more than to sleep and wake up to try again. Each day embarks upon a new journey that’s guaranteed to include laughter, tears, smiles, and frowns.
