i brew up resources to help you stress less and love momming more

Becoming a mama can be stressful! My goal is to help you stress less and maximize your precious family (and personal) time so you can avoid sweating the small stuff and simply love being “Mom”. 

Here you will find a treasure trove of useful tips, mom hacks, product recommendations and easy DIY projects. I’ll share all of my mom wisdom (for whatever it’s worth), gut instincts (backed by research), and “me time” inspiration.

I scrape together whatever time I can find (like during 3 a.m. serenades from this little nugget through the baby monitor) to write for you, and it makes me so happy! Thank you so much for stopping by. 

what's here for you?

Everything you need to get you to, through, and beyond the fourth trimester.

I am right here in the trenches with you, mama. I feel your growing pains, your struggles, your lack of “me time” and your overwhelming sense of “What did I get myself into?” (But the giggles, smiles and drool kisses make it all worth it, don’t they?!)

Together, we will make it through this transition into motherhood. I’m giving you all of my tips, tricks and checklists to make your transition even the tiniest bit smoother.

What Mamas Are Saying

"Kim is, first of all, so encouraging and open to listening when you are having a tough time. She is so well researched and has great resources for all phases of life and parts of being a mom, wife and friend!"
Mom of One Little Girl, Age 5 Months

"I am a mother of 2 young girls, ages 2 years old and a newborn. I am always impressed with Kimberly's attention to detail, tenacity, and overall love and care for her little one. Kimberly is an excellent mother who will go to the moon and back for anything her daughter needs. I enjoy our chats about motherhood and the welcoming ability to bounce around ideas and strategies of parenthood with her."
Mom of Two Little Girls, Ages 2 and 2 Months

"Kim is one of the most selfless, genuinely kind women I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She has the biggest heart and is always willing to help others in any way possible. She is dedicated to becoming the best version of herself and is truly inspirational. I admire her willingness to learn and grow as a woman as she navigates so gracefully through the challenges of motherhood."
