Hi, I’m Jade, welcome to Mehaffey Moments! I’m Mom to 3 kids, wife to my high school sweetheart and we call the Midwest home. I’m a stay at home mom doing the best I can because my husband travels a lot for work.
I love to be outside, I love being a Mom, I love skincare and I love making easy homecooked meals for my family.
Originally my blog was started back in 2012 to chronicle our lives working our family dairy farm. But sadly, due to the economic times in dairying farming, we are no longer farmers. That being said, in our souls we are farmers and maybe someday we’ll have a little ranch of our own again.
Meet my Kids
My three kids (left to right) Madison (9), Naomi (6) and Bryce (12).
Madison was born at 24 weeks and weighed 1 pound 4 ounces. I’m a NICU mom and know what it feels like to have a child who was sick and needed to be hospitalized all the time in her early years. Madison also has Autism and we are learning as we go. But she is a fighter, she is amazing, funny and smart!
Naomi is adopted but is still just as much a part of our family. Anyone who has adopted a child over the age of 3, thru foster care, may know some of the struggles when adopting a child and not a baby. Naomi is smart, caring and a go-getter!
Bryce is my boy and is going to be a teenager this summer! He is smart, inventive and quick-witted. He’s caring, very empathetic and a great big brother.
Meet my husband!
Jarret and I have been married for 13 years this summer and were born & raised in Southern California. He’s a certified welder and was an excellent dairyman.
We live in the Midwest because Jarret’s career is here, we love the school system and it’s less expensive!
On the blog
My mission is to help Mom’s get dinner on the table, save money, encourage you to take care of yourself, share my love of nature and helpful tips on raising kids.
I will be the first to admit that I don’t have it all together, but every day I get up and try again.
