Katie Kuenkel can relate to many moms of the world. She has worked full-time, she has worked part-time, she has taken her kids to daycare and she has been a stay-at-home mom.
Katie has four wonderful children where she now balances taking care of her home and working part-time.

Many times I wonder, “how will I get it all done?!” when faced with laundry, dishes, vacuuming, cooking, and chasing my kids around the house every second of the day. But some friends of mine have given me some very wise advice…the first being to not expect to get it all done. You have to prioritize and let some of the non-important stuff go…and to get used to a messy house! And others have told me that having a job that takes you away from your children for even a short period of time makes you appreciate the time you have with them so much more. So very true.

It has been awhile since I last wrote. And to be honest with you, part of the reason was because I didn’t have the “perfect” topic to write about. I was waiting for something to inspire me. And yesterday, something did. It was a classic act of ‘mind-over-matter,’…of courage…and of determination. And here it is... Read More
I started out Mother’s Day 2012 celebrating my ‘day of freedom from obligations’ at home…but I returned that night with a whole new feeling of appreciation. Read More
There have been a few instances recently where I have told someone that I am the hostess of a new “Moms Everyday” show. If there is a man within earshot, I often hear the response, “Well, what about Dad?!” Read More
That’s right. I’m sticking up for my favorite holiday—Thanksgiving….which seems to have been getting overshadowed more and more each year by Christmas. Enough is enough. I’m taking a stand. Read More
I’m a sucker for a really good, inspirational quote. I have a bunch of favorites on the walls throughout my house. But I saw a quote on the wall at a friend’s house this summer that really resonated with me for some reason. It was a quote by none other than Dr. Seuss himself. Read More
So, how do you feel about twins?!” It was a phrase I’ll never forget, and one that changed my life (and my family’s life) forever. Read More
