Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Corinne…
A Mom to school-aged twins and a happy-go-lucky toddler who is notorious for leaving shoes and stuffed animals on every piece of furniture in our house. I left my job as a corporate event planner to be a Stay at Home Mom when my twins were born in 2011 and dove head first into motherhood, sleepless nights and athleisure wear.
I know you’re here for a reason.
- You want to have a thriving, happy and connected family.
- You want to be a better parent.
- You want to sleep through the night.
- You want to learn how to stop yelling.
- You want to find balance and have more fun days than challenging ones.
- You want to stop feeling burnt out.
- You want to give your children experiences, not things.
- You want to learn how to calm a tantrum like a boss.
I want those things too.
I created The Pragmatic Parent for the everyday parent, so you know you’re not alone. I’m doing Mom Life the best way I know how but it’s no easy job.
The thing is…
All those things you and I want, don’t just happen overnight.
They take a lot of conscious effort, persistence, patience, and mindfulness.
While You Try to Teach Your Children About Life, Our Children Teach Us What Life is All About – Angela Schwindt
At The Pragmatic Parent, I hope you find motivation, start to find direction and balance in your parenting journey, and help your family thrive together.
15 years ago I made the first move and asked my husband on a date (I was a confident & persistent 20-year-old you could say) and now we have 7-year-old twins Trenton and Juliette, a 3-year old daughter Taylor, and 11-year old Labs Charlie and Calvin.
WHAT I LIKE:
I love to get in a crossfit session or walk with the dogs to start my day, drink homemade blended coffee all morning long, am always looking for good podcasts to listen to while I make dinner and am an essential oil junkie. Other than that, I love working on this blog, getting to know my readers and helping them any way I can.
We live in Northern Colorado, minutes from hiking and biking trails, a reservoir and plenty of activities to get us outside and moving together. We spend 91% of our time outside all year long and I love how active my little family is together.
