Hi there! I’m Kim, nice to meet ya! Welcome to the place where I share my thoughts and experiences on parenting, relationships, and life in general. I’ve got two cute kids who keep me on my toes (Hi, Delilah and Ledger), a super hot boyfriend (Hey there, Jeremiah), and a fur baby. In my 25 years of living I’ve learned that life is freaking messy. It basically never goes as planned, which can be really hard, especially if you’re a control freak like me. But you want to know a secret? It turns out ok. Even when you think it won’t, the world keeps spinning and life goes on.
Writing keeps me sane. My mind works in blog posts, articles, essays, and lists. Half Crunch Mom was created because I needed a space to talk about real life. So what does “Half Crunch Mom” mean? Well have you ever heard the term “crunchy mom”? According to Urban Dictionary it means, “A member of an increasingly growing group of moms who are neo-hippies. They generally believe (for varying reasons) that there is something bad or less beneficial about buying mainstream products or doing other common activities in the mainstream way.” So basically, I’m kind of a hippie. I buy the expensive organic chicken at Wal-Mart, I try and make my kids eat kale, I made my own baby food, and I freaking love the Farmers’ Market, but I also really like ramen noodles, my kids eat too many happy meals, and I don’t buy natural cleaning supplies… so yeah, half-crunch.
So enjoy following our crazy life. I hope it brings you joy, comfort, or some kind of entertainment.
