Stressed. Overwhelmed. Imperfect.
Hello, my name is Lisa and I’m a wife and mom of twins, a tween, and a teen.
I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 14+ years now and we have four kids who keep us on our toes. Our boy girl twins are currently 5-years-old and starting kindergarten in the fall. Our tween son is 12-years-old and entering 8th grade. The oldest is our 16-year-old daughter who begins her junior year of high school in the fall.
We live in Iowa and love the midwest but I found my love for traveling years ago and am always looking for new adventures for both our family and myself. I enjoy traveling solo because it offers a little me time, which is a big part of self-care as a mom, and solo travels give me that.
Marriage and parenting offer joys and struggles, and I strive every day to be better at both. Me time, family fun, and a few cocktails here and there make motherhood so much more enjoyable for me. That’s what I hope to help you achieve here at Mom on the Side, along with lots of twin parenting stories and advice.
If you are an imperfect parent who enjoys a little me time, grab a cup of hot chocolate or a glass of Moscato, and enjoy the reads!
