The Mid-South's Premier Parenting Resource

Jeanie Whinghter



Jeanie is a perfectly imperfect mama, transplanted to Cordova fresh out of graduate school. She and her husband, Matt, had no intent on making Memphis “home” – but ten years later, they’re still here (and love it!). They have three saucy gingers, along with three “fur babies”. Between homeschooling and chairing graduate Psychology departments online, life is never boring in the Whinghter house. It’s no surprise that Jeanie fancies coffee, but she also loves bargain shopping and embarrassing her children with her questionable singing/dancing skills. She’s had more #PinterestFails that she can count and has perfected the art of giving a good pep talk (watch out, puberty!). Motherhood has slowly transformed her into the “uncool” Mom she thought she’d never be, yet she’s never felt cooler or more content with her life.

There will likely be a frenzy of activity […]

So you're preggers (or adopting) again? Congratulations! You're about to enter the world of being a mom times two... or more. It's the most rewarding thing in the world, but let's face it, Mama: It is a little overwhelming to think about how to give 100% to more than one kid. As it turns out, […]
Walk the Walk with Sidewalk Chalk
Our family has a reputation in our neighborhood. And it's a good one, thank you very much (don't worry, Mom). For the past few months, we've been using the quarantine time to spread cheer to our neighbors - at a safe distance, of course. We've been decorating our sidewalks with messages of hope, love, and […]
A Couch Full of Memories
Oh my stars, I can't believe I just cried about a COUCH. Yes, you read that right. I just shed tears about a piece of furniture.  "It's just a thing," my husband said. "And you keep saying that it doesn't fit in our house anymore." Well, okay, Dr. Obvious is technically correct here: we have […]
