Tara Czerwinski is a former English teacher turned stay-at-home mom most days and a let's-get-the-hell-outta-here mom others. A mom to two and a wife to one, she's an unfaithful fitness fanatic with a soft spot for carbs in both the solid and liquid forms. When she's not drowning her ice cream in rainbow sprinkles, Tara can be found avoiding housework and volunteering at her kids' school. She enjoys exploring midlife minutiae surrounding motherhood, kids, marriage and friendship as well as the daily grind here at Suburban Misfit Mom.
Born and bred on Lawn Gisland (translation: Long Island), Tara currently lives in a suburb of Philadelphia along with her family and their Singapura kitten, Khaleesi. While her husband, Charlie, is patient and supportive, he has a knack for sniffing out her bullshit and gently calling her out on it. Tara's daughter, "M," is a creative and spunky girl who habitually sets up pop-up shops and convinces her parents to buy back their own belongings. Her son, "C," is an adventurous, Lego-lovin' kid with mad armpit fart skills. Together, they enjoy noshing on chips and salsa, playing board games, and hanging out at the beach.
