I created this blog for the mom who is scrolling through Twitter at 2:00 a.m. in an effort to keep herself awake while breastfeeding.

This blog is for the new mom who is questioning herself and her abilities.

It is for the overwhelmed mom who just wants five minutes of quiet time in the bathroom.

I made this for the mom who is lonely and needs a friend.

This is for the mom who is getting through the day running on coffee and leftovers from her toddler’s plate.

Are you a new parent?  Are you looking for someone to share your experiences with as a mother?  Do you need a friend or a shoulder to lean on?  Would you like to find new ways to strengthen your family and become a better parent or partner?

You’re not alone.

Welcome to my blog, Mommin’ in the Real World.  I wanted to create a place where I could connect with other moms, be a friend to those who need it, and help others as they navigate through the crazy world of parenthood.

My mission is to create a positive place for mothers where I can genuinely and candidly share my story, inform, and inspire other moms out there.

Parenting is hard.  You’ll doubt yourself. It can be lonely.  It’s always unpredictable and sometimes thankless, but definitely worth it.

I know what you’re going through.  Follow me to get a glimpse into my experiences, who I am, what I’ve learned, how my family is growing, and more.
