Welcome, I’m so glad you’re here.
Hi, I’m Corinne.
I’m a 30-something Event Planner turned Stay-at-Home Mom married to a handsome bearded fella, and Mom to 7-year-old boy/girl twins, a 3-year-old little lady who lights up our house with sunshine, and two 11-year-old fur babies.
In 2011 I dove head first into motherhood after only have ever babysat twice in my life!
When I’m not working, you can usually find me walking my pups, biking, playing or swimming with my kids, hiding in my house in cozy athleisure wear, or listening to a good podcast.
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.

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 asked my husband on our first date and now we have a house full of rough-housing hooligans and two 11-year old Labs Charlie and Calvin who don’t know what “use your inside voice” means. I’m very blessed, but also very tired.
WHAT I LIKE:
I love to wake up early and get in a Crossfit class or walk the dogs before the kids wake up. I drink all.the.coffee all day long, am always looking for new podcasts to listen to while making dinner, and am obsessed with my Young Living essential oils.
And of course, I love writing for this blog, getting to know my readers and helping them with parenting strategies.
We live in Northern Colorado and spend 99% of our time outdoors playing, hiking, biking, swimming and exploring. My husband and I are super active (you know what they say… lead by example if you want your kids to be healthy), and so all of our kids learned to
walk, run, sprint around 9 months old and are freakishly athletic. We’re basically always on the go doing something together, which I love.
