Hi! I’m Kristin…


Yep, that’s me. Okay so this is the younger, less tired, well groomed version of me. The me before kids. Before the mommy brain kicked in (that really does exist!), before the obsessive researching into the wee hours of the night, before the diaper changes, before the potty training, before the constant counting “1…2…2 1/2…”, before the warm hugs and snuggles, before I felt the intense love a mother has for her children, and before I knew just how much I’d LOVE being a mom!

Whiteside family

This is me now. Wife, Mom, blogger, self proclaimed professional researcher on all things kid related, hair bow maker, Moms group leader, toy fixer, poop inspector, play date organizer, wino (Opps, did I say that out loud?) and the list goes on.

I have two lovable, sweet, smart, hysterical daughters who I adore.  And a caring, hardworking, husband who makes us laugh on a daily basis. Life is good…at least for the moment.  Ask me again when both girls are screaming for me while I’m trying to quickly make their lunch and the dog is barking at the UPS guy who is yelling something to me through the kitchen window. Ahh, mommy problems!

I invite you to follow me through this exciting, crazy, ever changing journey of life as a mom. I’ll be sharing parenting hacks, personal stories (because I know I’m not the only one who’s sweet child has decided it was a good idea to rip off their poopy diaper and examine the contents. Then smear it all over themselves, the floor…), hot topic discussions in the mommy world, fun crafty kid activities, recipes and more.

KnowMom! is not a blog full of judgment or mom shaming. I’m sick of all the mommy wars! I understand that everyone is on a different path and just because something works for me and my family doesn’t mean it will work for yours. So please take everything I say with a grain of salt. If my blog makes you smile, you gain something positive or *Gasp* even LOL during library story time, then I have accomplished my goal.

Hope you enjoy reading KnowMom! as much as I enjoy writing it! Like me on Facebook, follow me on Instagram and subscribe to KnowMom! so you don’t miss a post.

Live, Laugh, Love,
