Jessica Curry Morton, the mama behind Happy Mama, Happy Babies, is a happily married, stay-at-home and work-at-home millennial mom (phew!) with three children -- two daughters and one son.
The balancing act of motherhood, life, and the unexpected inspires Jessica to unapologetically pursue joy and lead her children down a path of creativity and self-discovery.
“My children have completed redefined (and challenged) my understanding of happiness,” Jessica laughs. “I've experienced more joy in the last six years as a mother than in my entire life, and I am eternally grateful for this special, unmatched feeling.”
That unmatched feeling is a level of joy Jessica deeply wanted to express via a creative platform, and after lots of encouragement from her incredible tribe of mamas and friends, and an unrequited passion to share her experiences, wisdom, and lessons learned, Happy Mama, Happy Babies was birthed. Between blogging and managing two small businesses with her husband, Jessica and her family choose to make happiness their number one priority, despite the many challenges life brings.

In a world that’s inundated with distractions, often separating families from making memories and sharing quality time, Jessica takes pride in exposing her children to new art installations and challenging parks and play spaces, as well as taking them on trips and enjoying local festivals. Admittedly growing bored with ease, Jessica aims to switch up her family’s schedule to include new activities and unseen places, many of which are documented in this special blog. Memories are priceless, and traveling remains high on Jessica’s priority list.
“Visiting new places enriches our souls and increases our confidence because these adventures encourage us to tap into our senses while exploring interests and abilities,” Jessica explains.
Happy Mama, Happy Babies exhibits the mantra that any obstacle should be seen as conquerable if approached with relentless willpower. Each moment is an opportunity to grow together, learn together, and explore together, three acts of life that Jessica and her family certainly do not take for granted.
