Here, have my professional, written in third person so it’s weird bio first:
English teacher by trade, smack talker by nature, Stephanie Jankowski loves words and has a knack for finding the funny in everyday life. A mother of three in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Stephanie subscribes to the mantra: “Life is too short, laugh!” She is a freelance writer and director of the live-reading show, Listen to Your Mother Pittsburgh, and was famous for six seconds when her essays I Put My Husband First and The Worst Mother I’ve Ever Seen went viral in 6 countries. Her parents still think she caught the flu from the Internet.
Published in the bestselling humor anthologies I Just Want to Be Alone, The Big Book of Parenting Tweets, and The Bigger Book of Parenting Tweets, Stephanie is also a staff writer for the educational website We Are Teachers. Her ramblings have been featured on popular sites such as The Huffington Post, Scary Mommy, BlogHer, and Mamapedia. When she’s not folding socks, Steph enjoys putting the fun in dysfunctional on Facebook and Twitter.
About the Blog
When Crazy Meets Exhaustion was born in 2011 out of a work-at-home mom’s need for adult conversation. What started as a personal outlet quickly grew into an opportunity to word-vomit any and everything, in addition to working with like-minded writers and relevant brands.
WCME is the perfect representation of its creator and curator, covering topics such as family & faith, education, and funny served with a side of inappropriate. When Crazy Meets Exhaustion is a site for parents, teachers, and anyone who loves to laugh.
When I started this blog, I was a work-at-home-mom with two kids under two, and although I love my littles dearly, I needed more intellectual stimulation than singing along with Elmo and teaching a baby to wave bye-bye.
This is my attempt at re-acclimating myself into the world of full sentences and humor.
Now that I’m in the throes of this thing called parenthood, and I *almost* know what I’m doing, lemme tell ya: it is HILARIOUS! Kids really do say (and do…) the darndest things, and sharing them has connected parents from all around the world with a much-needed belly laugh. My stories of explosive diapers, droopy boobs, and otherwise “off-limits” tales have been met with a resounding, “Me, too!” from other Moms and Dads, and that’s pretty cool.

This page is dedicated to two of my heroes:
My Grandma, who always answered her phone, “Hiya!,” was a hard working, won’t-take-no-for-an-answer kind of lady. She was my biggest fan; you can read more about Gram here.
Tina Fey who is wicked smart, so friggin’ hilarious, and always lookin’ out for us girls. Had I never read her book, Bossy Pants, I don’t think I would have had the balls or inspiration to share my crazy with the world. Tina would have loved the hell outta my Gram.
Thanks for reading me!
