About me | Autumn
I began this blog in 2016 to help share some tips and tricks with fellow moms that I have learned on my fun and messy motherhood journey.
I call this blog Best Mom Ideas not because I have the best ideas, but because it’s about moms creating a community to encourage each other to be the best version of themselves that they can be! My goal is to share my triumphs (and tragedies) when it comes to raising and teaching my children, to tell you what works for me (and what doesn’t), and share a few laughs along the way. Above all, I want to create a space where moms (and dads and grandparents) can feel understood and never judged.
A little about me...
I have been (most days) happily married to my wonderful husband for nine years. We have two silly boys and an independent daughter! Our first born is 6 years old, our second is 4 years old, and our third is 2 years old.
Ever since I was a little girl I have dreamed of becoming a teacher, so in college I studied to become a teacher and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I have taught in the classroom and as an online teacher. Both experiences allowed me to teach students of varying ages in multiple states, so I have been certified to teach in California, Colorado, Arizona, and Georgia.
However, one of my greatest joys (and challenges) is being a mom! After my first son was born in 2013, I wanted to be involved in helping him learn and grow, so I began to develop color lessons to help engage his developing mind. I also wanted to help other moms dealing with hectic schedules and continuous time restraints. As a result, these activities evolved into my first book, Toddler Lesson Plans: Learning Colors. Myself and my children have continued to enjoy the daily activities, which has turned into:
Toddler Lesson Plans: Learning ABC’s
The Ultimate Toddler Activity Guide
The Ultimate Kindergarten Prep Guide
Learning Numbers Workbook
When I’m not changing a diaper, fixing dinner, or folding clothes I like to play outside with my family, plan our dream vacation, or get lost in a good book.
I hope you find that this blog saves you time so you can focus on being your Best Mom!
