Welcome to Mama.Mommy.Mom.!
Life doesn’t end after becoming a mom. We’ve still got friends, hobbies, interests and a life outside of our children. Granted, those things may take a backseat sometimes but that’s why we’re here – to reclaim our lives and the things we love.
When we’re happy, we’re better moms, wives and friends.
From food to fitness and parenting to photography, you’ll find it here.

Momma Juli – Writer
Juli brings a unique perspective to Mama.Mommy.Mom… She’s here to share all the joys and struggles of having a pre-teen girl and living as a divorcee.
Juli was born and raised in Moundsville, WV. At the age of 26, she moved to Columbus, OH where she resided for 11 years. Then a great promotion was offered to her and she moved her family to New York City. She and her family resided in NYC for 2 years. When the economy turned south, Juli was forced to seek other employment. She and her family ended up in Mooresville, NC in 2009.
After a 13 year marriage, and raising a then 10 year old, she and her husband decided to call it quits. She has struggled the past two years with finding herself and raising a pre-teen. She works several part-time jobs from home, allowing her to be available for her daughter.

Momma Laura – Writer
Laura is coming to us all the way from the UK. Laura, an American, is married to her best friend who is British. 2 years ago when they found our they were expecting their first child they made the move to the UK. Laura met her husband when she was 17 and living in El Salvador with her family. Her husband had gone on a youth trip to the area. The two met and they were instant best friends. But unlike her husband, who years later confessed to having a crush on her, she would have bet anything she wouldn’t have ended up marrying him. 10 years later they reconnected and the walk down the isle came just 13 months later.
Adjusting to life as parents has been a journey of discovery. Discovering who they are, not only as parents, but also as a married couple. Laura admits that on the outside her parenting choices might seem unique, but she is just the same as every parent out there, learning what works for her and basically guessing and hoping for the best.
Laura is excited to share in the parenting journey with you. If you have any questions for her ask away. Laura exclusively breastfed for 6 months and continued breastfeeding until 18 months. She uses reusable diapers and doesn’t own a stroller, instead uses baby carriers. She also did Baby-Led Weaning with her daughter (which skips the purred stage of weaning). Any questions about any of these things or if you just want to say hi, she loves chatting so ask away.
