Stephanie Sprenger

Stephanie Sprenger is the mommy blogger behind stephaniesprenger.com and mother of two.

I’m Stephanie. I am a writer, music therapist, and mother of two little girls. I live in Colorado with my daughters, ages 8 and 3, and my incredibly cool husband.

I write mainly about parenting and motherhood, obviously. My most popular posts are I’m Glad They Warned Me, What I’d Like to Tell My Childless Friends, But Won’t, Dear Stay-At-Home-Moms: Go Ahead and Complain, and Thanks For Nothing, American Girls (Why I Dislike American Girl Dolls). I write about maternal guilt, my struggle to find balance as a writer and part-time working mom, feminism and motherhood, and why I feel like a failure as an adult. Sometimes I tell funny stories about my kids, or vent about my dislike for homework, or explain why the 1980s was the best decade to be a kid, and sometimes I write about why three-year-olds kind of suck. I also have a song parody series, ParentZ Bop (like KidZ Bop- get it?) where readers rewrite popular songs with funny parenting lyrics and then I perform them. Because, in my other life, I’m a classically trained vocalist and music therapist.

As a board certified music therapist for nearly sixteen years, I have worked with children with a variety of special needs in my private practice, and I currently work part time teaching early childhood music classes. My classes incorporate specific developmental skills for infants through preschoolers while providing an essential socialization opportunity for both children and parents. You can read more about my “Day Job” at my business website, Music With Miss Stephanie. I enjoy the benefits of working part time in the mornings and spending afternoons at home writing, mommy-ing, and finding excuses not to clean my house.
