Baby’s First Year
You’re so sleep deprived that you can’t muster up the energy to shave both legs on the same day, and the only grown-up you’ve talked to all day is Oprah. What’s more, you think colic should be a four-letter word. Don’t worry. Seasoned mom and Internet favorite Jen Singer has been there. Jen Singer helps you find new ways to embrace the roller-coaster of new parenthood, and enjoy the laughs along the way.

The Toddler Years
When it comes to raising a toddler, forget about “what to expect.” It’s the unexpected that transforms calm, collected women into frazzled, fried moms. Award- winning website creator and blogger Jen Singer offers the same camaraderie, advice, and encouragement she’s become known for as the Internet’s favorite Momma.

The Preschool Years
You didn’t know you had to drill your child on how to draw the proper stick person to gain admission into the best preschool…or that there was a waiting list since your baby was in utero. As the saying goes, “Momma said there’d be days like these…” Except your mother didn’t. Jen Singer shares her must-know advice plus dozens of “what works” tips from other moms in this manifesto for modern momhood.

You’re a Good Mom (and Your Kids Aren’t So Bad Either) (Sourcebooks)

For 21st Century mothers, there seem to be just two choices: live up to Super Mom or give up and be Slacker Mom. One’s bad for you; one’s bad for your kids. What’s a momma to do? Author/blogger Jen Singer says you can raise perfectly good kids in that sweet spot between flash cards at breakfast and “donuts for dinner, kids!”

Survivor

Jen Singer was getting ready for the second grade eCancer Todaynd-of-year party when she found out she had cancer. A tumor the size of a softball in her lung, the product of stage three non Hodgkin’s lymphoma, would soon sideline her from her usual role as mom, soccer coach and hostess of the frat house for fourth graders.

She chronicled her experience parenting with cancer on her GoodHousekeeping.com blog, and on her award-winning web site, MommaSaid.net. There, she wrote about her Wacky Wig Contest and the subsequent Marge Simpson wig racing by her front window atop one of her two boys, Nicholas, then ten, and Christopher, eight.

Since then, she has provided the voice for parents with cancer on radio programs and in such media outlets as StandUp2Cancer, Newsweek and The Washington Post’s On Parenting blog. She writes regularly for Living with Cancer magazine, and was featured on the cover of Cancer Today. She has served as a speaker for the American Cancer Society and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, where she received a standing ovation from an audience of 300.

In 2011, she launched ParentingWithCancer.com, which has been featured on Parenting.com and in Cancer Today.

Jen and ParentingWithCancer.com were featured in the October 2012 issue of Parenting magazine in an article called “Moms Who Rock: We Faced Cancer and Beat it!.” She is also a mentor angel at Imerman’s Angels.
