We are happy to welcome to Brooklyn to the Burbs Patricia, a new guest blogger who will be posting periodically. She recently made the move to Cranford, NJ, and writes of her transition with great wit and humor. Patricia blogs at GoodMomvsBadMom.com. – please see her bio below, and we look forward to hearing her perspective on the Jersey angle!
Patricia spent 9 years living in Manhattan–much of it in Hell’s Kitchen–before moving to Jersey City (aka the Sixth Borough) when she married. Six years and two kids later, she (reluctantly) and her husband (excitedly) decided to make the big jump to suburban life in nearby Cranford, NJ. After living in urban environment for more than 20 years, Patricia is enjoying the concept of extra space. So far, her favorite phrase to utter in the ‘burbs to her son and daughter are, “Go outside and play.”
When Patricia isn’t working part-time, chasing after her kids or going for a run, she can be found loading up her brand new minivan which fits a lot more groceries than her stroller.
