Hi, I’m Corinne…
Mom to three kids, including boy/girl twins who are 7 and my youngest, who is 3 going on 13. Our house is one crazy, fun ride full of love, big emotions and endless piles of sand and dirt.
I’m just like any other parent – I’m trying my best to be a good Mom while juggling my family’s needs and home responsibilities. But since I’m being honest… being a parent is hard. It’s harder than I thought.
I’ve learned the hard way that each of my kids are unique and what works for one, most definitely will not work for the other. The moment I think I have something figured out, they decide this is the optimal time to shake things up and keep me on my toes.
Everyday I try to soak in little moments (even those I don’t like, such as when the kids glued rocks to the countertops or cut each other’s hair during quiet time) because being a Mom is something I’ve always dreamed of.
The Pragmatic Parent isn’t a place to tell other Moms how to be a parent… because I can’t do that. Every baby and every child is different and nobody can tell you how to be a Mom. That’s the thing; you’ll get advice from everyone, but in the end, only you know your child and you know your family.
The Pragmatic Parent is about my own real life experience and what I’ve found works – and might work for you. Or there might only be one nugget of wisdom that does the trick, but you always have to trust yourself, believe in your instincts and do what’s best for you.
The Pragmatic Parent has a “No Judgement Zone”
This is not a site for “controversial” topics such as breastfeeding versus formula (fed is always best), co-sleeping and vaccinations. I support the choice you make for your family and your children. Those choices you make are between you, your doctor and your family.
Parenting is hard enough and there are so many opinions as to what is “right.” Just remember, how you chose to parent is the best way for your family. This isn’t a place to bash or bicker with others who feel one way or another. This site offers helpful and smart information so you can take what you want from it, apply it to your own family and situation and share your wins.
