The Mid-South's Premier Parenting Resource

Erica Baumer



Erica Baumer was born and raised in Memphis and currently resides beyond the suburbs in the rural town of Rossville. She married her high school sweetheart and together they are parents to Savannah (born September 2008) and Lincoln (born April 2013). When this full-time working mom is not on the job or chauffeuring her two little darlings around town, Erica enjoys bubble baths, Netflix marathons, and eat cookie dough. (If you don’t think those are hobbies, try doing all three at the same time!) Her greatest parenting advice is to be yourself and encourage your children to do the same. Live outside the box, color outside of the lines, and remember that big messes often make bigger masterpieces.

It was started decades ago and has evolved over the […]

What I Didn’t Expect after Getting My Tubes Tied

When you have that baby and then have another, the question persists, "Are you going to have any more?" And now I have the ultimate convo shut down.   […]
