About Jen Banks


Jennifer Banks - AfterHello! 

Welcome to A Busy Mommy, I’m glad you stopped by.

My name is Jen Banks, and most of what you’ll find on A Busy Mommy is my doing.  On occasion I do rope in my Mom, Hubby and a few good  friends to help me out around here…

For 8 years I have been writing here on A Busy Mommy, and sharing our life on Facebook and Twitter.  For that time I have also been working part time out of the house… but I recently gave that up to work full time here, on A Busy Mommy…and, cause, well, I didn’t want to go to work anymore. I like the perks of being ones own boss.

I am the proud mother of 2 boys who drive me nuts!  But I love them. Ben is pushing double digits at almost 10 years old, and William just turned 5.  Both my kids are in school and there is no greater feeling then when they’re at school and my house is QUIET.

My partner in crime is Corey.  Together we do our best to keep our kids fed and semi clean.  I stress the semi.  Boys are never clean… ever.

I am the owner and writer of this website.  And as I mentioned above, it is my full time gig!  I am currently working on our main focus… our direction.

We love to write about food and recipes, toys and games.  We love to go on family adventures and now that our kids are getting older, those adventures can be more exciting!  Disney is always on our to-do list too.

Personally, I enjoy knitting and DIY project.  As I create them, I will be sharing my knitting patterns here and on ravelry.  And we will be building tutorials for some fabulous spring projects!

If you would like to get in touch, please email me at  Jen@abusymommy.com

I look forward to chatting with you!
