My sister and I have always been “creative”. Whether selling homemade chocolate candies, sewing doll clothes or making “spaghetti pizza” we’ve had a knack for creating stuff. We started this blog in 2017 as a way to share how we’re currently using that creativity with our families with young children.


We are not millionaires, our children have never ridden an airplane (hope to change that soon) and our husbands work hard for our families. My sister works as a Nurse and I’m a stay at home mom aspiring to have a small school one day. We see each other at least 3 days out of the week, usually more. Our kids are constantly in each others faces, we burn food at least once a week and neither of us owns a pet. We usually talk on the phone once a day, sharing the craziest thing we’ve experience in the previous 12 hours. 

Hopefully Mamahood in a Nutshell is a place where you can sit down with a cup of sweet tea and laugh at our constant ridiculous failed attempts at being awesome. A place where breastfeeding resources encourage you on your journey. I high five when your kid reads their first word and a hug when the other kiddo poops in the bathtub again…(can I get an AMEN?). A community that uplifts each other through the daily victories, surrenders and battles of mamahood.

We are constantly working to provide relevant and easy to use guides to thrive in a home with small children. If it works for us, it may work for you, so we figured it’s worth sharing!
