Modern Parent is a community by parents for parents
perfect, imperfect and total hot mess. Welcome. You are among friends here.
Modern Parent is a site where you can feel like real parents with real kids
who likely don’t make it out the door in the morning with 100% of their stuff. And the dog may or may not be eating the kids’ leftover breakfast from the table and it’s quite possible that you don’t know what day it is. And that’s OK. We don’t judge you. Some days, we are all rock star parents. Other days, we collapse in a pile of laundry at 10pm and fantasize about moving across the country and changing our names. It happens.
This website is designed for one reason- to share the journey of parenthood with other parents. We don’t care what wear or what your marital status is or where you go to church or if you volunteer at school or if you are still wearing your pajamas from two days ago. We care about bringing a smile to your face during nap time or inspiring you with a recipe that you can actually make for dinner instead of cereal. Modern Parent is a community by parents for parents- perfect, imperfect and total hot mess. Welcome. You are among friends here. Read more
I'm Kate. My hair is always in a ponytail and I know most shows on PBS Kids by heart. My house nor my two kids are ever really clean. Writing is my catharsis and currently my meal ticket. I found my first gray hair recently and attribute it to sleepless nights and the constant fear of screwing up my 4-year-old and 21-month-old children.
I'm a single mom of 2 originally from the Midwest. How many people can you say that you know from the Town of Normal? I have one son, age 14 and one daughter, age 17. I'm also engaged to be married in June, 2015. We also have 2 furbabies, Tinkerbella Pixiedust, a 9 pound Chin-Tzu, and Jack Sparrow, our rescue Boxer.
