Hi, I’m Jo!
Just a little bit about myself in case you want to know who’s the Jo writing these blogs. My name is Jo Ilfeld and I was one of the co-owners of Let’s Go Strolling, an online baby gear boutique. This means I’ve tried out 100s of strollers, baby carriers and most other trendy baby gear that is out there (feel free to ask a ? if you think I can help). The Let’s Go Strolling store lives on but without me since we sold it in 2009.
I’m also a Mom to 3 occasionally adorable, always challenging kids. My oldest son is 8 ½ , my middle son is 5 1/2 and my baby girl is already 2 1/2 , wow does time fly! Note how important the ½ years are to my kids. . .
Anyways, Valco thought some of you parents of more than one, might be able to relate to my struggles to balance the needs of 3 very different kids, a busy household, and a transitional time. Since selling Let’s Go Strolling, I haven’t been working. I feel like I’m 21 again – always thinking about what do I want to be when I grow up. Perhaps there are also some Moms out there grappling with the challenge to find a career that seems to offer some work-life balance. And please, if you have one – LET ME KNOW WHAT IT IS!
Ok – that’s all for now. Stay tuned for my exciting entries like – “Why did I think Disneyland was a good idea?” and “Could bedtime be any worse?”
