Talking All Things Toddlers
Saggy breasts, excess skin and my favorite, the love pouch. Like most women, my body changed after having kids. It wasn’t until I knew I was done having babies that I considered plastic surgery.
Our lives change when we have kids. When did welcoming your little miracle into the world segue into a funeral for your friendships?
Spanking is a topic that can break a room in half in a matter of seconds. For this exact reason I have been cautious, thoughtful and patient about when I would approach it.

Babies & Toddlers
Hello! I am born and raised in Lincoln, and I never plan to leave. As a small child I knew I wanted to be a mom. My mom is my best friend, and I wanted that bond with my children. I went to college at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and graduated with a degree in Journalism, but my one passion was motherhood. My husband and I have been married for over 11 years now and we have two children. Cohen, my son, is 10 years old and Collyns, my daughter, is 7 years old. We recently got a dog, Maya, who is now the baby of the family. In addition to the time I devote to being a mom, I also work full-time at a local television station. It’s a balancing act, but being a mom is one full-time job I never want to quit.
K-12 & Teens
My husband and I have three kids. Our oldest is a sophomore in college, our middle daughter is a sophomore in high school and our youngest is a seventh grader. Like most families, our calendar is color-coded with professional meetings and family and kid activities. In my free time, I like to read, write, exercise and travel.
Grandkids & Grandparents
Where can I even begin to explain the magic that consumed me when I found out I was going to be a grandparent? It didn’t take long, and I was a grandmother of four wonderful kids. With the birth of each one, I was in awe of my emotions and my love for these bundles of joy.
