I’m so happy to meet you!
I’m a small-town Canadian #boymom obsessed with helping other parents reclaim their sanity, improve their kids’ behaviour, and find joy in the wild ride that is parenthood.
I’m a big fan of real talk and with two little monkeys of my own, I know first hand the trials and tribulations of raising young kids.
TRANSLATION: you can always count on me to give it to you straight
I thought this parenting thing would be a breeze…
and then i had kids
and realized that “breeze” was more like a category 5 hurricane i hadn’t prepared for
Working full-time as a Pediatric + NICU Registered Nurse I really thought I’d have this whole “parenting” thing in the bag… That is until I found myself at home with two kids under two and not a CLUE how to manage my toddler’s newfound “testing” stage while juggling the feeding/sleeping/crying schedule of my newborn without losing my sh*t every. single. day.
I HATED being upset and frustrated with my toddler and I was TIRED of feeling completely bankrupt of ideas for how to win his cooperation without nagging, yelling, or losing my cool. Within 10 days of my youngest son’s birth, I made a decision.
I WAS NOT WILLING TO LIVE BEING ANGRY AND CONSTANTLY FRUSTRATED WITH MY KIDS — NOT EVEN FOR ONE MORE DAY.
And here I am, 5+ years later, staying true to my word, helping other parents all around the world do the same. If you leave here today (thanks for stopping in, by the way!) with even one new tip, tool or strategy to make your life smoother, breathing easier knowing you’re not alone in your struggles (and doing a darn fine job, I might add!) then I’ll consider my job done.
