Welcome to 'I Brake for Moms'

My name is Jennifer Bardsley and I am one of those awful Californians you hear about who sells their itty-bitty condo near San Francisco and buys a beautiful house in Edmonds. But it's OK to still like me because #1) I'm really nice, and because #2) my husband has roots in Edmonds that run five generations deep. I know that readers in Snohomish County will agree with me when I say that circa 1940, or circa 2012, this is a wonderful place to raise kids.

I am very excited to give voice to “I Brake for Moms.” My goal is to channel all of the thoughts that you or I might have had while driving our kids to piano lessons, or nearly running somebody over with a gigantic shopping cart at Fred Meyer, and funnel them into a column that is funny, thought-provoking, and relatable.

In addition to being a mom of two, I am also a former teacher and author of the educational blog: Teaching My Baby to Read. You'll see some of my ideas for supporting at-home learning shared here on the “I Brake for Moms” community blog, This is also another place to find my latest weekly column.

I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment below or else email me at
