Mommy diaries: Jyl


Meet Jyl:  Another friend from my past who is back in my life.  At one point, Jyl and I were inseparable, playing ringette together and plotting to take over the world, one crush at a time.  Jyl is one of the neatest people I know and I can't help but smile whenever I think of her.  She amazes me in many ways:  I love her writing style, in fact she was one of the main bloggers who got me inspired to blog.  She has a beautiful daughter, Katelyn and is not ashamed/afraid to talk openly about her battles with Post- partum.  She also took on one of her passions in life and opened Sweet Baby K, an online baby boutique filled with adorable things for baby girls.  There is so much that I admire in Jyl, I could go on forever.
I mostly admire her honesty.  She speaks of topics many people would be too scared to tackle and I believe she's saved many lives because of this.
I enjoy her rants.  She makes me laugh and leaves me wanting to be able to write like her.
I am thankful for having her back in my life.  I wish we lived in the same city because I can definitely see many playdates and copious amounts of coffee consumed over many giggles.
I think other moms would benefit from her thoughtfulness and ability to make you smile from the inside out.
This is Jyl: 


  1. I've been so excited, waiting for my turn on "Mommy Diaries"! This has been such a fantastic idea, Deena...reading about the other moms and getting their tips/views.

    Thank you for the kind words you wrote about me :) I, too, wish we lived in the same city. Methinks there would be some harmless stalking happening, only instead of drive-bys, we'd be doing "stroller-bys" :)

  2. dee you are right - Jyl always did and does make a person want to smile!


Have a lovely day!
