Once a month we will interview moms in our “How Does She Do It?” feature. If interested in participating please reach out on Instagram or Facebook.
We are very excited to introduce you to Tiffany Jenkins. She is one of my favourite content creators and is the mom behind Juggling The Jenkins. She is a mom, wife, author, and recovering addict. She is brutally honest and extremely funny. She is passionate about bringing awareness about mental health issues and addiction. She wants to share hope through humor and has started touring on a stage show called “This is Awkward AF.”
Are you an Urban or Suburban Mama, where do you live?
I live in Sarasota, Florida which is a pretty big city. Siesta Key is here, so everyone comes here to retire lol.
Tell us about your children?
Aw man, Kaiden is my first born, he popped out on my birthday—thanks for that pal. Chloe was born 16 months later and my bonus daughter Aubrey came to live with us full time 2 weeks after Chloe was born. They are each incredibly different and equally awesome. I love them so friggin much, man. They are 3, 4 and 8.
Tell us about your typical weekday?
Well the kids are in preschool now so my days look WAY different than they used to. I usually respond to emails, write scripts, dress up in crazy outfits and record, edit, write, do my podcast, go live and hang with my supporters. Life is pretty cool.
Do you have help?
My husband has started helping me and it has been HUGE. Having someone in charge of the business-ey aspect of it was life-changing. I don’t use the part of my brain that handles numbers and schedules so I used to just cry and rock in a corner when someone would try to talk about adult things. Lol. Now I just get to be creative.
Who cooks dinner?
Taco bell usually. Lol.
How often do you buy something just for you?
Not very often! The majority of things I own have been sent to me by supporters. I’m wearing a shirt, socks and a bracelet that were sent to me as we speak.
Do you exercise regularly and if so, what and how do you fit it in?
I mean….No. No I do not. I should. I just found out I have high cholesterol so I should probably. I will. Next week I’ll start.
What clothing lines or stores do you like to buy for your children?
I am a huge fan of Goodwill and Walmart. The clothes will be destroyed by noon anyway so I’d rather them destroy cheap clothes ya know?
I’m totally obsessed with…
Crystals and stones! I have a big collection.
Three things in my purse right now are…
I don’t wear a purse. I lose crap all the time. So I travel light.
My favourite drugstore buy is…
They have these bomb-diggity leggings hidden in the corner for $2. I feel like I’m the only one who knows they are there!
My guilty pleasure is…
Cheese. I saw a documentary that cheese is terrible for you and it’s basically coagulated cow pus but I will still eat an entire Mozzarella ball in one damn sitting. If cheese was a person I would marry it.
Thank you so much to Tiffany Jenkins for taking the time out of her day to let us know “How Does She Do It.”
