San Francisco  mom Blog

Our Urban Playground is a lifestyle and family blog written by me, Jennifer Latch, about raising a family in San Francisco.

I am a married mother of three girls. They each have very distinct personalities as you can see here.

I work as an actor and commercial model. Here is my latest commercial:

I also run social media, marketing and brand partnerships for professional skateboarder Aaron Kyro of Braille Skateboarding. We hit it off after our “Teach a Mom to Skate” series and I have worked with his team to add 20K Instagram followers and 60,000 YouTube subscribers just in the past 2 months. We also pushed his channel to over 6 million views in the past 30 days.

I started this blog in 2012, after the birth of my third baby to have a creative outlet and to document my relationship with my children, my family and our community of San Francisco and beyond.

This website and it’s social network channels have served as a way for me to connect with the community and help others through laughter, memories, heartbreak and perseverance to succeed and make our lives what we want them to be.

I have had the honor of being published on Huffington Post several times, featured on BuzzFeed, Rookie Moms and won top Bay Area Mom blog in 2013 on Pop Sugar’s Circle of Moms.

This blog is about my attempts to make life fun, every part of it, in this amazing city by the bay, Our Urban Playground. It’s a mixture of things that inspire me, my own struggles, my relationship with my children and our huge renovation project we are right in the middle of!

Thanks for stopping by. I really look forward to getting to know you, but if you prefer to follow along silently. that’s ok too.

xoxo from San Francisco,

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    I wanted to thank you! I’ve noticed that our web site gets several hits, daily, from your awesome post. I own TANTRUM (in Cole Valley)
    You’re site is really fantastic! I’ve been seriously considering a pixie cut, of late, and your posts were most informative. (I kinda liked the “Willy Wonka” one the best, however.)
    Anyway, I totally recognize you and your oldest daughter and I hope you can stop in (again) soon.
    Cheers and thanks again!

    • Hi! Thanks so much and I am so happy that the post has generated some traffic! That’s fantastic and exactly why I love to blog about small businesses and artists in SF!

      We will stop by again soon!


  2. Hi Jen, Your blog also covers parenting and how you raise your kids so that they are independent and capable. That is an awesome goal, and it really comes through in some of your posts, and your kids are great because of that.
