Hi! I’m Corinne, a proud mom with a deep-rooted passion for helping my fellow moms navigate the triumphs and challenges of family life with ease and joy. I’ve worn the hat of stay-at-home mom and also work-at-home mom to five incredible kids as I journeyed alongside a devoted United States Marine for nearly three decades.
These experiences have blessed me with insights, resources, and most importantly, a burning desire to empower and connect with other mothers to ensure that we all find joy, balance, and fulfillment in our family lives.
While navigating the highs and lows of life, I found solace and expression in writing. Today, I’m a published author and am honored to have been featured in prestigious publications such as O Magazine, Woman’s World and Better Homes & Gardens. But my connection with words doesn’t stop there. I have a penchant for word games, from Scrabble to Boggle, and if there’s an anagram that needs solving, consider it my superhero cape moment.
When I’m not crafting stories or deciphering words, you’ll find me chasing marathon finish lines, diving deep into my latest read, or engaging in spirited family games, be it on a game board or a volleyball court. The sound of pickleball paddles and the laughter of my loved ones are the sounds I cherish most.
I firmly believe that life doesn’t come with a one-size-fits-all manual. What’s right for one might not resonate with another. That’s why I champion the idea of learning collectively, gathering pieces of wisdom, and crafting a unique path that’s perfect for each of us.
I welcome you to my online sanctuary. Here, you’ll find reflections, stories, and insights gathered over years of experience and introspection. My hope is that as you journey through my blog, you’ll feel a kinship, find valuable takeaways, and, above all, be inspired to weave your own narrative.
About Wondermom Wannabe
You may feel like a Wannabe, but I already know you’re a legitimate Wondermom simply because you landed here. You went in search of a tip or idea to make your family life better which means you are an everyday hero (even though you don’t know it yet).
You don’t think of yourself as a hero because you look around and compare tiny bits of your life to the BEST parts of lots of different other people. Because you love your family and respect yourself, you want a spotless house, healthy meals on the table each day, homemade gifts that bring tears to the recipients’ eyes, and the time to do everything you want to do including time to relax. You look around and see other people managing one or more of these areas really well and wonder why you can’t get it all together too.
In reality, ALL of us have forgotten an appointment, had someone drop in when the house was a mess, yelled at our kids, and failed to get a healthy home cooked dinner on the table. The effort it takes to KEEP TRYING, despite our constant downfalls requires superhuman strength.
And here you are, summoning that strength to find a quick and easy recipe for dinner, a printable to help you be more organized, or a parenting tip to make your home life more peaceful. You are in the right place!
Finding faster, easier and more enjoyable ways to manage every aspect of mom life is my mission. I test all of these ideas on my semi-willing family members and share the results with you.
