Hi my name is Jackie, I live in Southern Massachusetts. I love it here in New England. I was born and raised in Boston. I have four wonderful successful married kids. James 42, Jodi 40, Jeffrey 38 & Jonathan 36. IAs you can see I was a very busy mom. I had all my babies before my 24th birthday! I loved it! I had the energy to chase them around. And now, I am blessed with 11 amazing Grandchildren. Life doesn't get better than this. I just love being a "Nani."
