There is no such thing as a normal life, there is just life… So you are probably wondering why the heck I named this blog Normal Life Mom?

I’m Christine, a mom of two trying to navigate the exciting/scary/busy world of parenting and just happen to live in Normal-(yep, a real place) in the middle of Illinois.

I’m a part-time work from home mama who chases around her two kiddos everyday, constantly trying to figure out the age old question “What’s for dinner” and what are we going to do all day, without being glued to the TV. This blog should be able to answer both those questions.

Normal Life mom is a family lifestyle blog where you are going to find a variety of topics centering around food, family and fun.  A little bit of mom life splashed with baby helmets, grocery lists and meal prep, play-through-learning ideas, preschool and toddler life, and a glimpse of what is on my plate.

The thing about mom-hood is that it’s always changing, so you are sure to find some of the topics changing here too.

My Philosophy On Food

We are an allergy family, between my kids and I we are allergic to: eggs, gluten, cashews, mustard, tomatoes, ginger, corn, peas, and peanut butter. Did I also mention a few of us are lactose intolerant? I want to provide and share wholesome and delicious meals that anyone can enjoy while also catering to our own allergies.

My approach to food is low sugar, real ingredients, no added dyes, organic whenever it can be, fiber added wherever and whenever possible, and all things in moderation. So, ummmm what do you eat? Stick around you are sure to find some yummy and delicious recipes and ideas.

Philosophy on Fun

Whether we are traveling, having outdoor movie nights or are trying out the latest and greatest toys and gadgets we love having FUN (who doesn’t right?!

I’m a firm believer in play-through-learning and love coming up with fun ideas to promote and stimulate imaginative play and sensory experiences for my baby and pre-school aged daughter.
