Welcome to Coffee and Carpool!
I’m Nicole and I’m a recovering elementary school teacher, turned stay at home mom to three loud, busy, and surprisingly determined kids. I spend most of my days living out of my car driving to and from kids’ activities and schools; and while I wouldn’t trade it for the world, some days I just, for the love of everything, need a break after running around town. For me, that usually involves coffee. Or let’s be honest, a cocktail.
As a teacher and a tutor, we spend a lot of time in my home doing activities that are so fun, they don’t even realize they’re learning. Or maybe they do, but we do them anyways. Because I focus on getting my kiddos truly ‘school ready,’ am a huge proponent of avoiding the ‘Summer Slide,’ and I want to make sure they find success in school. Need ideas for your family? Click on School Success Tips! These ideas will work for home school families as well as those of us who just like to sprinkle in some learning after school hours.

I also happen to be a Food Allergy Mama and a Special Needs Mama. But instead of focusing Coffee and Carpool on just one of those things, I’m incorporating it all. Because those of us who are Food Allergy Mamas are not just focused on reading labels and carrying around epi pens. And those of us who have kiddos with special needs also have kids who don’t. We don’t live in a vacuum. We have to focus on and care about everything. Because that’s what we do as moms. Here, we cover it all. Because moms cover it all.
My job is to both make your life easier and more efficient so you have more time to enjoy your day. Moms need a daily reminder that no one mom has it all figured out all the time. We’re just doing the best we can to make it to bedtime. Is it bedtime yet? What about now? Check out our Mom Hacks: anything and everything to make your life run smoother.
You’re not alone. Our Parenting Support will prove that we are your tribe of moms and are going through exactly what you’re going through. We’re exhausted. Emotionally and physically. We’re madly, crazy in love with our kids, even when they’re acting like wild beasts and won’t go the f to sleep. Our lives are imperfectly perfect. And that’s great. But we’re looking for ways to make our days just a little easier. Ok, maybe a lot easier.
Know that we’ve got your back. Let’s do this mom thing. On the go.
Just don’t forget your coffee.
