Frequently Asked Questions
(or things you might have been wondering about but were too shy to ask)
Your blog is listed as a Working Mom Blog on Top Mommy Blogs, so where do you work?
I teach 9th grade Geography at a public high school. It is a lot of hard work and a little heartbreak, but I love it. All of the hours away from home can be hard, but I feel that in the long run I am setting a good example for my kids and students, contributing to my home and community.
What is your name?
Being but a mere public servant who loves her job, I am going to go by the semi-anonymous Mrs.PJ. I say semi because there are a select few people out there who know me in real life and know I keep this blog.
Well, what can you tell us about yourself?
I am married to Mr.PJ, we have two sweet children under the age of five, I teach approximately 130 teenagers, and I am a pretty nerdy granola crunchy woman. Both of my babies were born in the bathtub with the assistance of a midwife. We cloth diaper and both my babies nursed (the little one still is). I am vegetarian, but Mr.PJ is not. I adore my babies, love my home time and enjoy teaching. I enjoy making my students laugh with cheesy jokes and teaching them about the world we live in. Being a working Mom is not easy by any means, but I try really hard everyday to do my best. In my heart I trust that God will guide me and give me strength.
You are a Mommy? Where are all of your kid pictures?
Sorry, you will just have to take my word that they are pretty darn cute and use your imagination. I grew up in the era of "stranger danger" and I bought into the hype. There are just too many registered sex offenders out there, too many creepers out there on the internet and too many children who go missing and are never found. You can call me paranoid if you want, but I am going to err on the side of caution and protect their privacy. I don't feel the desire to use my blog as an online scrapbook or a means to share updated photos. The thought of strangers cooing over my babies makes me uncomfortable. If you want to see cute kids there are millions of them on the internet, so please don't let it upset you that I choose not to share mine.
How did you come up with your blog name and what does it mean?
That was one of the very first things I wrote about. I wanted to start a blog, but waited until I was inspired to come up with the perfect name for it. You can read all about it here.
What if my question wasn't answered here?
Just because I'm stingy with the kid pics doesn't mean I'm not social. You can contact me at Mrs.PJRenewed@gmail.com or by commenting on any page or post.
