Hi.

I'm Kristin.  I am a wife, aspiring designer, Christian and for now a SAHM.  My husband and I are parents to two darling little boys named Dylan Archer and Kyler Jude.  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.  

I call this The Mom Jungle because life is wonderful and messy and indeed, "It's a jungle out there!"

HELLO WORLD

Yesterday I had the honour of throwing a baby shower for one of my dearest friends, Michelle.  I am very excited for her as she will soon welcome a little princess!  While I absolutely adore my boys, it was so much fun and dare I say therapeutic shopping the girls' section and being quintessentially girlie!  

Two shower games I created were called WHO'S YOUR MAMA and BABY BABBLE which you can download.

The third and final game was identifying theme songs from 90's children's TV shows ["Doo Doo Doo Doo-Doo Inspector Gadget..."].  It was good, nostalgic fun taking a trip down memory lane!  Our mama-to-be has some dietary restrictions so we had to deviate from typical shower fare, but her mom and husband were very helpful and one of the girls even created a beautiful "cake" constructed entirely of fruit! The one hiccup was that I forgot to handout the succulent party favours!  Here's hoping I can keep them alive before I see the girls next! 🌵

All in all it was a wonderful day as we celebrated a monumental milestone for Michelle and her husband John.  In her thanks she so eloquently articulated, "I have many dreams for my baby girl, but one that tops the list is that I hope she finds meaningful friendships like I've found with all of you.... thank you for loving our baby girl already."  I love my friends and I love their babies!

Auntie Kristin can't wait to snuggle (and spoil) you baby girl! xx
