I have always wanted to be a mom blogger! Welcome to Just Raising the Bahr. Our unedited and honest take on parenting and all things life. I started my journey of motherhood in 2012 and have since learned so many important lessons and grown in the process.


This sweet and sensitive six-year-old boy made me a mother. He is so active and happy. His manners are impeccable and he loves his siblings. He wakes me up in the morning with a kiss on the hand. Bryson is the child I struggle the most with during school. He has a hard time believing in himself, but he is so proud when things finally align for him. He loves rocks and playing outside.


This sweet four-year-old is Mr. independent. He was born at 36 weeks and began my life as a premature mother (or so I thought). If he can do it he will and if he can’t he will damn sure try until he figures it out or gets frustrated. His diet consists of anything and everything (he has always been my best eater). He is a funny soul and excels at school work. Bayne is my rambunctious child and he can be a bit much for some people. He, however, cares so much for his family and constantly is giving kisses.


This little girl has made my life extremely stressful and amazingly worthwhile. She was born at 31 weeks and gave us a long NICU stay of 47 days. She has taught us so much in her short life and I can’t wait for her to teach us more.¬†Hayden is the most talkative and has been speaking entire sentences since before her second birthday.

This is the fiance, hubby, amazingly talented, and sweet man of men. He is a godsend and was sent to me when I was in a rough patch in my life. He joined my family with two young boys and has accepted the boys for all they are and all they are yet to be. On valentines day of 2017, we welcomed our daughter Hayden into this world together.

I am a food addict, a habitual procrastinator, I’m terrible at putting clean laundry away, I love a margarita after a long day, and every day I strive to be a better mother and fiancee than the day before. I’m here to share my knowledge and help other parents. I am divorced, an avid couponer, on a low carb diet, homeschooling, planning a wedding, and living our perfect life imperfectly. You could say my life is a never ending cycle of chaos and you would be right, but it’s my life and I love it.  Join our journey, we are glad you’re here!
