Welcome!  I’m so glad you are here.  Coffee After Kids is a blog community for all of us tired moms living off little sleep and lots of caffeine.  I hope we can encourage one another, share parenting tips, show off some delicious recipes, and have some laughs while doing it.  I love getting to know my readers so please feel free to leave comments, email me, or follow me on social media.    

 

Hi!  I’m Brandy.  I am a wife, mom, and step-mom.  I love to cook but have learned everything I know from just reading, watching videos, and trial and error.  I like sharing recipes that anyone can make, even those that don’t think they can cook.

I meal plan/prep almost every week for my family.  It has saved me so much time, money, and calories!  I’m working on several things to share my tips, tricks, advice, and recipes so that you can learn how easy it is to meal plan, too.

We have made dinner an important time for our family and I hope to help you do the same.

It has been said that kids and teens who eat dinner with the family at least 3 times a week:

  • Have stronger family bonds
  • Perform better at school
  • Exhibit fewer behavioral problems
  • Are less likely to engage in bad activities (smoking, drugs, sex, drinking)
  • Are more likely to eat healthier
  • Are less likely to have excessive weight gain

I became a first time mom two years ago.  It has been a crazy ride but I wouldn’t change it for a thing.  I love talking to other moms and sharing tips/advice that have helped me.  Sometimes you just need to hear that you aren’t the only mom going through something.

I share personal product recommendations for kids, moms, and families.  I am trying to switch to healthier products in our home and will share those as I find them.

For fun, my husband and I play an MMORPG (basically it’s an online role playing game with lots of people) in our spare time.  I’m obsessed with The Office, The Big Bang Theory, Gilmore Girls, or That 70’s Show.
