Hi, I’m Nicolle! 

Messy Mom, Nicolle 

Welcome to the site! I’m so happy you’re here.

Tales of a Messy Mom is a blog dedicated to helping new and expecting moms, just like you, through the messiness of pregnancy, babies, and toddlerhood. Here, you will find tips and advice on birthing, breastfeeding, cloth diapers, gentle parenting, and much more. 

I’m a stay-at-home mom who turned nap times into writing time. God has blessed me with a caring and supportive husband, James, and two beautiful children. We are also blessed with two dogs, a cat, and 6 chickens. We’ve certainly got our hands full!

After the birth of my first baby, I went back to work full-time for 4 LONG and DREADFUL months. Being a working mom was just not for me. But, staying at home was tough as well. I still needed to connect with other adults, and I still needed to maintain a sense of identity.

I started Tales of a Messy Mom with the idea of connecting with other new parents. I wanted to share my experience and offer tips to moms-to-be. I wanted to provide support and encouragement to struggling moms.

As my children continue to grow, so does the site. Tales of a Messy Mom has really started to blossom with more and more parenting topics.

After starting Tales of a Messy Mom, I was given the opportunity to reach even more moms by freelance writing for some top mom blogs, like Mom Loves Best, and Happy Tummies Cookbook!

I’m a Mom First 

While I love writing and helping other new parents, being a mom is my number #1 job and top priority. <3

I’m so blessed that I have two healthy, active children. Especially, after dealing with some stressful pregnancies, as I had gestational hypertension with each of them. But, now I have a beautiful, princess-loving toddler, and an inquisitive, food-loving baby boy.

When they’re awake, I try to be the best mom I can for them. But, when they’re asleep, I’m here to help other moms, just like you, be the best you!

Motherhood is a crazy, messy, but beautiful journey! Let’s get through this together! 

You can also find me on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram!


I love things that waddle: penguins, seals, and especially corgis!

We are a hiking, kayaking, and music loving kind of family.

I could eat nachos everyday. I love me some nachos!
