Lisa Hanneman


Lisa Hanneman is a mother of three, which makes her an expert on everything and nothing. She has spent the last five years in the haze of pregnancy and infancy and somehow her kids have survived without her reading a single parenting book - even if there are plenty piled up on her bookshelf.

She has two boys and a girl who serve as constant entertainment and teach her more than any parenting book ever could. Go figure. Lisa writes about her family's daily nonsense and overbooked life at Hannemaniacs.
