About & Contact

I am a parent who is trying my best to raise kids into well-adjusted adults. Parenting is hard.  The hardest job that I’ve ever had.  But I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Everyone thinks we have to be extraordinary parents raising extraordinary kids but really most of us are just ordinary parents who are trying to raise happy, ordinary kids.

I’ve decided to have some fun and create this site to blog my experiences and show that ordinary is ok. More than ok.  We should embrace ordinary because ordinary is the new awesome.  You can also search for us on Facebook at The Ordinary Parent Community to join the conversation.

I can be reached via email at julie@theordinarymom.com.
