About Me

Raised by my mom and grandpa in rural Illinois, I’m a high school teacher turned WAHM.  My trio, Bo (7), and twins, Clara and Anna (5), keep me on my toes!  They love school and are involved in a variety of activities including piano, dance, and swim team.

I am as eclectic as they come – in my interests, my friends, and my life. My love for Instagram, DDPYoga, desserts, reading, and my family, combined with a Type-A personality, make me a force to be reckoned with.  Luckily, despite my many quirks, I met the love of my life in a college history class and married him on Valentine’s Day 2004. Mike Jamie FoamFest 5k 2

When I’m not driving children to their various activities, I’m teaching Political Science full-time for a major online university, teaching online for the local community college, and working as a freelance editor and writer – all while wearing yoga pants in my home office. In my free time, I also attend graduate school online to obtain my doctorate in Organizational Leadership with a concentration in corporate training and e-learning. *Graduating in 2018!*

While I’ve written in the blogosphere since 2006 (this started as an infertility blog…), I’ve found that life has taken over during the last several years allowing me less an less time to capture the memories I want to preserve.  I still try to post at least monthly here at Sticky Feet and occasionally post recipes at Five Wooden Spoons, however, most of my online time is devoted to teaching and writing professionally.  Clips of my writing can be found at www.jamieweitl.com.

    Thanks for following me, as well as for your congrats with my recent FET success! I wish you all the best with your own fertili-hell escapades! IVF: such a bitch, but, man, when it works, such a miracle. Good luck!!!

    Oh, I remember the shock of twins — we had two older kids. Visit my blog for helpful info about juggling and birthing and breastfeeding two! Congrats! And maybe we can do a One Hot Mama giveaway for you guys someday! 🙂

    Hi Jamie,
    I found your blog while looking for Signing Time!. I loved reading about you. I, too, endured many IVF cycles and an ectopic pregnancy. Unfortunately I was unable to stay pregnant very long, but we are blessed with 5 children through adoption. We got them all at birth and their ages range from 10 to 2yrs old. I know what you mean about having your hands full. It will be crazy at times and you’ll wonder if this is really what you wanted. I also gave up being a teacher to be a SAHM. I thought it would be so much easier than being at school all day. I was very wrong. 🙂 I have found that I, too, miss adult interaction, but I love being at home. Good Luck to you. We also used Signing Time! with our children and love Baby Signing Time! I’m sure you will too.
