Jackie Berger lives with her husband and two rascally boys in Volo, IL. A former working mom who now stays at home (or, rather, leaves the house) with her toddler and preschooler, Jackie and her sons star in their own comedy of errors. Jackie blogs about the mostly joyous, sometimes painful, but always entertaining aspects of being a full-time mom to a couple of little lunatics.
