Welcome to Juggling Act Mama!
Hello, and welcome! I’m Angela Paris - but everyone calls me Ang - and I'm the multi-tasking mama. I’m a mother, wife, daughter, sister, auntie, friend, PTA volunteer, and business woman attempting to do it all.
Here on Juggling Act Mama, I offer solutions to tame your hectic lifestyle!
I know what it means to juggle priorities. Sometimes it's smooth sailing and sometimes - just like all of us, I get overwhelmed and need a hand!

Oh, and one more thing – I’m so glad you’re here!
I grew up in Maine, where I met my future husband in high school! After college, Mr. Juggling Act and I moved to New Hampshire and got married.
Our children keep us on our toes!
Olivia is in middle school and Ethan is in high school!!
Time has really flown since I first started my blog back in 2011
It's hard to believe they're not these little ones anymore!!
These days my kids are active in Girl Scouts, soccer, horseback riding, and robotics.
In addition to all my roles listed above, I’m also a writer, crafter, scrapbooker, photographer and Pinterest addict. I love traveling and discovering new places with my family.
Long before Pinterest, I developed an addiction to books, snapping memories of my kids, and chocolate desserts... or chocolate anything...or...ok, just sweets in general - don't judge me!
I am always hearing "I don't know how you do it." People sometimes joke with me that I’m not happy unless I’ve got a hundred things up in the air, all at once. I suppose I can’t deny it!
The most important thing to me is my family, so I try always to put them first. This is easier said than done, since sometimes - like most moms - I want to hide from my kids and have a little peace and quiet!
If you're an overwhelmed mama like me, you're going to want to check out my Busy Moms Survival Guide.
I have loads of tips for busy moms and I think you'll find some great takeaways. I love being creative whether it be with food or paper or games with the kids. I don’t have a special space for crafting, and I don’t have a huge kitchen for cooking.
I’m just a regular mom with crackers on the floor, toys on the sideboard, and always a load of laundry that needs to be washed, dried, or folded. Or all three.
