This is the home page for all things related to being a mom in the middle of a messy life. I am your host, Karen, a high school science teacher who is trying to balance working full time at a job I love, nurturing my own hobbies and passions, and helping a little human grow into a big human (we call her The Munchkin).

The Blog

All the various ramblings of life inside the messy home. Including but not limited to the time I almost burnt the house down, when I couldn’t be present, and how social media can LIE to you.
