Jen Warman: New Freakin' Mummy


A New (To-Be) Mother in the Hood

A First Time Mom Bares All

Hello Yummy Mummiers!

My name is Jen Warman (formerly known as Jen Schlumberger, and sometimes known as a combo of the two names: Jen Warmberger) and I am thrilled to be blogging as part of the Yummy Mummy Club! So thrilled in fact, that I just squealed with excitement and peed a little. I’m going to blame that one on the baby that just kicked my bladder...Oh the joys of being 32-weeks-pregnant!

And just so we don’t get off on the wrong foot—I didn’t really just pee my pants—though I expect that might happen in the weeks or months to follow. Along with hemorrhoids, swollen ankles, and leaky boobs. This is all new to me, since this is my first baby—and I couldn’t be more excited. Or overwhelmed. I keep pinching myself, “Is this really happening? I’m about to become someone’s mother? But I can’t even put my own clothes in the laundry hamper, and I still lick maple syrup off my plate after pancakes...”

Oh dear...

There are also a few other things you should know about me, since we’re doing the formal “introduction” thing:

-I live with three furry men: my husband Tyler, my cat Grissom, and my dog Farley (and am about to live with a new and hopefully less-furry family member in the near future: arriving Feb. 24th 2012)

-I’m an only child

-I have a semi-concerning addiction to cereal

-I have an active imagination

-I’m a sucker for arm tickles

-I am an amateur stand-up comic who plans to do more shows in 2012 (I’ll keep you posted)

-I love improv, and am a graduate of the Second City conservatory program

-I sometimes convince my husband to play hide-and-go-seek with me when I’m bored. Nothing sexual. I just hide, and he finds me. Yep. I just admitted that publicly.

-I have a Bachelor of Communications—majoring in Television Production

-I also have a Bachelor of Education: Primary / Junior

-I sleep with my mouth open. It’s not pretty.

-I have an irrational fear of earthworms

Well, that’s about it for now. This should be a run ride folks! I don’t know what lies ahead, but I can promise you that I’ll keep you in the loop, and hopefully make you laugh a little (and pee a little) along the way as well.

If you have any other questions you’d like to ask me to get to know me a little better, feel free! I love meeting new people, and exposing my inner-most-personal-and-embarrassing-thoughts / fears / stories, etc...
