Jill Krause is writer and blogger who’s immersed herself in a life of sippy cups (Born Free, of course!), Diego, Mega Bloks and cloth diapers. Once a self proclaimed priss who wanted nothing more than a fast-paced and successful career, with ambitions to become the next Katie Couric, she now enjoys sipping coffee (and sometimes a glass of red wine), watching her toddler son play and taking in the big, little, sweet and funny moments of family life.
Jill blogs about these moments at BabyRabies.com where her journey began with something more than baby fever. “Baby Rabies” not only turned her into a maternal being, but also someone increasingly crunchy, eco-friendly, and hyper aware of things like chemicals, carbon footprints, the impact of BPA, and the ingredients in processed chicken nuggets.

I’m a SAHM to 3 children, a newborn son and two daughters aged 3 and 6. I’ve been married 9 years to a wonderful husband and father who graciously puts up with the amount of time I spend on the computer. In exchange, I put up with his fanatical love of hockey which is the longest sports season on the planet.
I love a good book, a great song and an excellent glass of wine. I also confess I watch too much TV and spend way too much time on the internet.
I love being home with my kids and wouldn’t have it any other way, but I am paying off an awful lot of grad school loans for this privilege. And, let’s be honest, my life often feels like “Groundhog Day.”
Mostly, I am just trying to be a good mom, wife, daughter and friend, all of which I do with varied success. Finally and most importantly, I am trying to figure out how to do all this in a way that honors God and is worthy of the high calling he has for me as a mom.
