One Tough Mother is a place where one over-committed and partially insane mom & wife spills her guts about her own shortcomings in the hopes of making you feel better about yourself.
I'm Kirsten, the slightly nuts woman who lives here. This is my world - full of half-finished crafts, empty scrapbook pages, burnt dinners, dirty dishes, and slobbering dogs.
In my world, faith and family go hand-in-hand. I'm no super mom, but my kid seems to think I am, and I'm just trying to live up the hype! In my mind, I've got the craft know-how of Martha Stewart, the decorating sense of Better Homes & Gardens, and the body of Kate Beckinsale. In the real world, where I'm forced to live against my will, I'm just me. Living a life too blessed to be stressed, and keeping it real, one blog post at a time!
Find out more about our family here.
I'll share quick and easy, but super cute craft projects that moms (and kids!) can do on a budget, and in a short amount of time. Because really, unless you're Martha and have a whole staff of crafters, who has time???
I'll also help you get organized with practical solutions for everyday family problem areas, like the lunch station in the pantry or the mail and bookbag drop zone.
Like the sound of it so far? Oh, but wait! There's more! I'm also on my second marriage (finally found a man who tolerates my stupid humor, OCD-leanings, and bad movie references), and have a daughter who splits her life in half between our house and her dad's house. Yea, we make it work. I'll share stories of our crazy life and how we always make time for the good stuff.
I'd love for you to linger in the mad, mad world with me for a while. A few of my favorite places to play are found here:
