Welcome! I’m Julie, mom to a super “assertive” and “opinionated” preschooler 😅. I’m also happily married (most of the time 😜) and we live with our sweet cats – Scott (Siamese/ Scottish fold), our super smart, now jealous, firstborn, and Opie, our clueless but adorable Scottish fold.

My goal in creating this site is to help new and overwhelmed moms navigate the challenges of parenthood in a positive way.

I also want to share my stories about the reality of motherhood and how it’s perfectly okay to feel sad, frustrated, lonely, angry, mad, and more as a mother. I also want to find out, research, and share the best resources and tools that can make life as a mom a little easier.

My goal is to make this a real, practical, no-nonsense site that would have been useful to me when I was a new mom.

I’ll also share all the crazy shit no one tells new moms about!

I hope I succeed in this mission and that you find my tips, reviews, advice, and stories helpful as well. So stay tuned and happy reading! 😄
