Jannine MacKinnon mom of two under two.


Motherhood hit me like a ton of bricks after having my first. I was so excited to become a mom and start a family, but was not prepared for how quickly you can completely lose yourself while stepping into your new role as a mom and having absolutely no idea what you’re doing.

Most of what I saw on social media was a picture perfect view of motherhood that didn’t relate to my journey at all. While I saw perfectly staged full makeup selfies with kids, I was completely lost in my new role as a mom with a colicky mamas boy stuck to my hip. Add in no sleep for a year I was losing my mind and felt so isolated with the resentment and anixety I was feeling.

Fast forward to now, I have two wild toddlers and have mostly figured my shit out so I can move past the negative feelings and be present to enjoy my time with my family. I don’t want anyone to have to go through the isolation and sleep deprivation for as long as I did which is why I’ve set out to help young moms find balance between their new role as a mother and refinding that special part of themselves that makes them feel like them.

Here on the blog you’ll find lot’s of recipes and kids activities mixed with reviews and DIY’s. To connect a little more and join me for this crazy adventure make sure to follow along on social media where you’ll find Mom Truth Mondays and everyday motivation and tips and tricks.
