Meet a Mama Monday - Jen Schray

Welcome back to the Meet a Mama Monday series! On periodic Mondays we’ll introduce you to a mama from our village. This week we’re featuring a long time member, Jen Schray.

Meet Jen! Jen is mom to Charlotte and Cole and has been called Mom for four years. She is soon approaching her four year anniversary with FIT4MOM Downingtown! Jen is also a biology teacher - we love our teachers at Stroller Strides!

Jen joined FIT4MOM after a friend suggested it during her first summer at home with Charlotte. She and Charlotte are so thankful they joined. They’ve met so many great friends and have made lots of happy memories!

Make sure to say hi to Jen and her sweet kids next time you see them in class!

What’s your favorite thing about being a mom?

Watching them learn and grow. It happens so fast!

What's the hardest thing for you about being a mom?

Finding time to do the things I love outside of work and parenting.

What advice do you have for new moms?

The fourth trimester is hard! Give yourself grace. Don’t compare yourself to others and don’t feel like you have to accomplish anything except keeping the tiny humans alive!

What’s your best mom hack?

When all else fails, it’s bath time. In the summer, the baby pool counts as a bath.
