About Me


 Howdy! I’m Niki.

I have a wonderful little girl that I call Toot. She came into our lives butt first in July 2015. Her dad is my spectacular husband, B. I work full-time, mom full-time, and want to sleep full-time.

I started this blog to share my experiences as a new mom and now as a mom of a toddler. I love to share parenting tips and mom hacks to help other tired moms save a little bit of their sanity. Toot was born right before about 15 of my friends had their babies, and I’m constantly giving them tips and recommendations.  If you follow my blog, it’s like being part of my mom tribe.

This blog is for you if….

  • You’re a mommy-to-be
  • You’re a new mom of a baby
  • You’re a toddler mom

Motherhood is a journey. Yes, I know that sounds cliche. But it is. As soon as you have one part figured out, suddenly you’re into new territory. So I have articles from the very beginning, pregnancy, through the baby stage and into toddlerhood. When we get to the preschool stage, I’ll tell you about that, too.

I’m going to try my best to help you out as much as I can. This mom thing is hard. We’re all in this together.



Blogging is a huge part of my life right now, and I love the community that comes with it. I have an ongoing How to Blog series with blogging tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way. If you’re interested in starting a blog, check out my guide to start blogging right now! I want to help new bloggers  learn to make money from their blogs.

My amazing husband, B, came up with the concept and drew it out freehand. And my brother-in-law, Brad, digitized it for us.
