Raising 4 kind, loving kids.
I strive to be the real deal, no mom guilt, yoga pants, my house is not spotless, laundry is piled up, messy bun momma of 4. Kids don’t come with a manual, and I am not going to shame you for feeding your kids too much sugar, letting technology babysit them, and dreading playing barbies or hot wheels with them. What I hope to do is listen to you, help you solve parenting problems, and encourage you to do the best you can. When our kids grow up they won’t remember how clean the house was or how fancy their clothes were they will remember how you made them feel and if you spent time with them. I want to help you navigate this crazy, beautiful season of life with humor and practical advice.
