Welcome To The Cradle Chronicles!

These are the crazy confessions of a novice mommy and her adventures in world "mom-ination." If you've followed my blog on PEOPLE.com/Babies, or read my new book Situation Momedy: A First-Time Mom's Guide to Laughing Your Way Through Pregancy & Year One, you're likely already familiar with my writing style and “Mommy-centric” blog fodder. If not, I'll introduce myself with this brief summary: Suffice it to say, I have kids. Two, in fact. Now, I’m not suggesting this defines me entirely, but it certainly goes a long way toward explaining my daily trials and tribulations with spit-up and dirty diapers. I also have five dogs, which throws some wacky canine parenting in the mix too. I hope you’ll continue coming back again and again for more of my motherhood anecdotes, and I look forward to hearing from you. If you haven't yet read "Situation Momedy," I hope you'll check it out! You can find a link for purchase under the "links" tab above. It makes a fun baby shower gift, even if you aren't a new mom yourself! The sequel, Situation Momedy: A Very Special Episode in Toddlerdom, is due to be released by Medallion Press in February 2017. Please feel free to follow me on Twitter and Instagram too!

I am Mom to a gorgeous little girl named Gray, as well as five canine children. Our house has more paws than feet, and the person who wears the pants still wears diapers underneath them. I am also a wife, an actress, a singer, a writer, a lover of all things creative, an avid reader, a challenge-seeker, a dreamer, a novice chef, a wine enthusiast, a Scrabble-junkie, a coffee-fiend, and a fan of coloring outside the lines. Not necessarily in that order. A while back, People.com asked me to write about my impending Mommyhood, and it got so addicting, I gave birth to a blog too. I’m still a work in progress, and so is the blog. This is what results when you combine a newfound love of motherhood and a propensity to talk too much, then throw in an obsession with photographing everything in sight, accompanied by a side of caffeine. Or two. Or five. Now I spend my days chasing pups & changing diapers in the country music capitol… Nashville. Add blogging to the chaos, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a source for comedy. Come join me on my crazy-making, laughter-inducing, and spit-up & poop-filled journey!
