What’s Normal Life Mom?

There is no such thing as a normal life, there is just life! This blog is just a glimpse into my very normal life (and I happen to live in Normal, IL)!

I’m a legging loving, coffee chugging mom of two. Our family has 9+ different food allergies and I am always looking for easy, healthy family friendly recipes keeping those allergies in mind.

I’m a big proponent of play-based learning and love to put together easy DIY learning activities for toddlers and preschoolers. Join me as I navigate my normal life.

Family Friendly Food

In our family “Normal” means cooking to accommodate several different food allergies. Can you believe 3/4 of us have food allergies? Our food allergies include mustard, egg, pea protein, ginger, corn, cashews, peanuts, walnuts, raw tomatoes, and oranges. In addition we have a severe gluten sensitivity and one of us avoids dairy! It makes cooking…interesting. We are always looking for healthy family friendly meals with food allergies in mind.


Mom Life

Motherhood is a wild ride. This blog is ready to share real life experiences through motherhood. Whether it’s the terrible twos, toddlerhood, preschool hood or just getting through the day; you are bound to find some relatable motherhood content.


Play Based Activities

Learning through play is such an important tool for children as they explore the world around them. I’m always looking for fun and easy DIY play-based learning and educational activities for my kids. We love sensory bins, kid crafts, educational toys and more!
