Meet Tove Maren – Mama in the Now
Hejsa! (that’s Danish for “Hi there!”)
My name is Tove Maren. I am a Danish American writer, fluent in Danish, English as well as Sarcasm. After spending 20+ years in the financial services industry, I followed my true calling and started writing full time, as a freelance writer, blogger and translator.
I am the proud mother of four boys: Jacob, Jordan, Jansen and Jonah and wife to a very tall, awesome and funny man: Paul.
My Danish childhood, combined with my American every-day-life and dry sense of humor gives me a unique perspective on parenting. My “parenting in the now” philosophy is a hygge-infused, down-to-earth, don’t-take-yourself-too-seriously approach to motherhood.
On Mama in the Now, you will find stories from my parenting journey. Sometimes I will make you laugh (when I wrote about what it takes to raise boys) and other times, I will make you cry (when I wrote about the experience that changed me as a mother – forever.)
In our house, we live in the now, laugh a lot, play with LEGO and get creative with crafts. We also deal with the trials of raising a medically complex child, my own Narcolepsy and then of course the occasional pinworm and lice infestations – because… BOYS!
We try not to sweat the small stuff, as we know first-hand that life is a precious commodity.
Now that you know a bit about me and my blog, I would love to get to know YOU better.
Please join my Facebook group: “Parenting in the Now.” (It’s a great place to find a new mommy friend, vent about maddening parenting dilemmas and share your favorite Netflix binge-worthy show.)
