I'm Kristin.  I am a wife, aspiring designer, Christian and for now a SAHM.  My husband and I are parents to three kids- Dylan Archer, Kyler Jude and Noelle Rose. I created this space to document my family's adventures and lessons I've learned along the way.  The Mom Jungle is a modern interpretation of both the family newsletter and scrapbook.  



It's official! We have a three-ager in our house [as of March 5].  It's incredible to think how our lives have changed over these past few years.  Dylan entered this world on a dramatic note and has been making waves ever since!

We opted for a simple birthday party with family for our little superhero.  We stuffed our faces with pizza and cake, played with Dylan's awesome new presents and topped it off with a nice long walk.  Not a bad way to ring in the big "3," eh? 


  • FAVOURITE TOYS:  Thomas the Train, Curious George, Paw Patrol and Kyler's Cars

  • FAVOURITE FOODS:  Waffles, Grapes, Bacon and "CAAAKE!!!"

  • He pronounces his name "Diyan Ach-aa" [see video below]

  • FAVOURITE PLACES: His grandparents' home, church and the park

  • FAVOURITE MOVIE:  Cars [although "Tangled" has been on repeat this week]

  • FAVROUITE BOOK:  "Potty" by Leslie Patricelli and "Count My Kisses Little One" by Ruthie May & Tamsin Ainslie

  • FAVOURITE ACTIVITY: Melissa & Doug Letter Puzzle [although colouring his "Despicable Me" giant colouring pages + Crayola Watercolours deserve an honourable mention]

  • FAVOURITE PAST-TIME:  Facetiming with his grandparents

  • LOVES:  Baking... and stealing the chocolate chips // Baths // Van rides

  • HATES: Puppies [He loves them from a distance, otherwise it's game-over]

  • HIS BFF:  "Kaya Jew" (AKA little brother "Kyler Jude") and was adamant that he attend his birthday party

Oh, Dylan- we love you!  While you are no longer a baby, you will always be my baby- but it is incredible to watch you grow up to be such a great kid!
