Meet Kori of Just Another Mom:
Hi Kori! Please tell us about you and your blog:
I’m a stay at home mom of three (two teenagers and a toddler), unofficial step mom of two tweenage boys, aspiring work at home mom, and beginning homeschooling mom. When I’m not blogging I enjoy cooking, baking, watching Jeopardy and Chopped. My blog, Just Another Mom, provides resources and inspiration for everyday moms and women everywhere.
What is your biggest struggle? This can be blogging related or just life in general!
Time management for sure. And this applies to both blogging and life, lol.
Are you married? How long? Tell us a bit about your spouse.
I am not, but I’ve been in a relationship with my other half, Kyle, since St. Patrick’s Day of 2013. It definitely seems like longer and I already feel like we’re married.
Describe each of your children in one sentence.
Oh boy, lol. My son is my miracle baby as he was born at 24 weeks gestation. My older daughter is my life teacher as she’s taught me so much about myself. My youngest is my spitting image in appearance and personality so I’m definitely in trouble, lol.
Do you have pets?
I have a cat and growing up had dogs… I miss having dogs.
What would you tell your 17 year old self if you could?
It will get better.
What would your kids say is your “catch phrase”?
My mother’s is “This is true!” She must say it 100 times a day. LOL! For goodness sake!
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Impatient, Persistent, Realistic
It is 9 pm on a typical weekday evening. Where are you and what are you doing?

When it comes to:
Cooking: Please share your favorite kid-friendly, mom-approved recipe! My toddler absolutely loves this spinach, sausage, and turkey meatball recipe.
Parenting: What would you tell every new mother if given the chance?
Absolutely sleep when you can!
This is your blogging story and our shameless plug :)!
How long have you been blogging?
With my current blog since 2014. But I have been blogging on and off since 2005.

What is one blogging tip that changed your life? Where did you learn it?
Don’t give up and don’t be afraid to change. And learned that through trial and error.
Kori’s Favorite Blog Posts:
Just Another Mom is a parenting and lifestyle blog with a special focus on autism and special needs. Kori shares parenting tips, early learning homeschool ideas and tips, homemaking tips, fitness and much more.
- Autism and Grief – This is a personal story of my initial reactions and dealing (or not dealing) with my daughter’s autism diagnosis
- Is Being a Stay at Home Mom Worth It? – One of my more insightful posts, I think. It’s why I wanted to be a stay at home mom again
