Hey there! My name is Jill Robbins. I’m a wife, mom, freelance writer, blogger, speaker and producer. Don’t I sound so fancy? I mean fancy in the “totally not wearing yesterday’s mascara and sweatpants with oatmeal stains” sense of fancy. At least I’m hoping it’s oatmeal but we all know it’s probably snot.
Welcome to my little corner of the Internet where you won’t find all the answers but where the question should always be “would you like wine with that?”
I write stories about life after adoption, getting older, and a general hodgepodge of stuff parents like. I’m not a professional chef by any means but I do know my way around the kitchen and you’ll see recipes on here from time to time.
I’m a mom to three kids: one from the vagina and two from China. I’m a wife, a Texan, coffee worshiper, lazy runner, student of human behavior, published author and speaker. If you’re the kind of person who likes to find the funny in the mundane aspects of parenthood, aging and life in general, you will like it here. If you take yourself too seriously or have a stick up your backside, ya might wanna move along.

If you hang out on this page long enough, a little box will fall out of the sky and invite you to invite me in to your inbox. My newsletter shows up in your inbox every Sunday night and keeps you up to date on my writing, public appearances and what I find funny or share-worthy on the Internet.
Stick around. I’ll make you laugh or roll your eyes or make you say “ooh I do that, too!”
Random facts about me:
Doughnuts are my favorite food ever. EVER. I hardly eat them because if I eat one, damn it, I’m eating about six.
I am an introverted extrovert…or an extroverted introvert. I always get that confused. I’m not shy but I like my social interactions in small doses…and I’m super awkward at parties because I never know what to do with my hands.
I am a smell person. My favorite smells are cedar, books and Love’s Baby Soft. Shut up. Don’t make fun of me.
My worst trait is impatience. My best? I’m an optimist…I try to find the positive in every situation.
