Hi and welcome! I started this whole thing because I was going crazy and needed a place to vent. Sometimes life can get crazy and hectic, but still she tries to keep things in perspective by doing all she can to make the day hopefully a little brighter. There are a lot of recipes. My name is Sarah aka Jolly Mom. Since I don’t have a photographer following me around* I wound up drawing some crappy pictures to illustrate the day to day things that happen as a parent. These have been tried and tested in my kitchen while kids played around me. And, no – I am not always “jolly”, but I try to be! Almost all of them can be done during witching hour, planned ahead and during the week at the last minute. To say I was obsessed with that movie is an understatement. I wanted to be just like Mary Poppins and, in fact, grew up and became a nanny for a time before having my own kids.
