Heather Earnhart

Blogger, Parent Panelist

Heather is just an ordinary mom trying to make her kids' lives extraordinary. She plays dolls and trains, grows vegetables on the deck, and tries to soak in every moment with her family. She does chalk and bubbles on the building stoop, chases pigeons and watches squirrels. She goes to libraries, museums and kiddy classes.  She loves to attend, and often performs classical music concerts herself. She builds sand castles at the beach, and has sore arms from pushing playground swings. She has a love/hate relationship with the CTA. She eats her way around the world in the melting pot of Chicago and loves to cook. She used to drive a double stroller, but has finally upgraded to a car. If you're lucky, she'll share all her secrets about Uptown, the most diverse neighborhood in the city.
