I stayed home with my first child. She was a fall baby, so by the time summer began, she was sitting up on her own and could fit into a cute bathing suit. That summer as a first-time mama,...
I have an 8-year-old and a 1-year-old. Needless to say, they need to be in different places at different times between school, nap, camp, soccer, nap, etc. Because cloning myself is not an option, and because I work full-time...
You know me. I’m the one unloading her kids from the car at the park just as you are pulling away to go home for dinner. Being a working mom feels so lonely sometimes.

We all know about our fantastic Downtown Library and the frequent concerts (and fireworks) at the Jacksonville Landing, but downtown is much, much more than that. From unique modes of transportation to (free) tours of our own local robotics company, downtown Jacksonville has plenty to do and see without breaking your budget!
