Hello! Thank you for reading my blog! My name is Jeanna Lucci Canapari and I live in the Boston, Mass. area. I have a five-year-old boy, aka C, and a two-year-old boy, aka T. I have an English degree from Columbia, and before kids, I worked in health care communications in Boston. And before that, I worked in publishing in New York. Now I work as a consultant in health care communications from home, trading my desk for some clear kitchen counter space.
I love to write – I had an essay published in a collection once – view it here! But I found it tough after the boys were born. Now between work, and kitchen duty, and kindergarten pickup, I am trying to steal a little time to write – just five uninterrupted minutes is all I am looking for.
I write about all sorts of funny/poignant aspects of family life, digging back to my own childhood in an Italian family in Long Island, to watching my boys start to find their places in the world (which is done mainly, as far as I can tell, by wrestling and asking for snacks). I also write about what I watch on TV.
