Smarts with a Side of Sass

English teacher by trade, smack talker by nature, Stephanie Jankowski subscribes to the mantra: Life is too short, laugh! A mother of three in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she spends way too much time caring if her kids' socks match.

Stephanie is a freelance writer for We Are Teachers, published in the bestselling parenting humor anthologies I Just Want to Be Alone, The Big Book of Parenting Tweets, and The Bigger Book of Parenting Tweets, and co-directs the annual live-reading celebration of motherhood, Listen To Your Mother Pittsburgh. She also makes a mean ham barbecue, but unless you're a 'Yinzer,' that probably means nothing to you.

Her blog, When Crazy Meets Exhaustion, is full of hilariously sassy musings on being a woman, mother, and educator. Steph was famous for six seconds when her pieces I Put My Husband First and The Worst Mother I've Ever Seen went viral in 6 different countries and more than 10 languages. Her parents still think she caught the flu from the Internet.

Windshield wipers are to our cars what eyelashes are to our eyes. They allow for better visibility and keep our view safe. That’s why it’s so important to curl them and apply non-smudge mascara.

Wait.

I mean, that’s why it’s so important to maintain windshield wipers.

Be safe and don’t underestimate the big job those little things do.
