The Mid-South's Premier Parenting Resource

Kristin Korneliussen



Originally from Kansas City, Kristin met her husband, a Seattle native, in Germany. The military brought them to Memphis, and they chose to stay after transitioning to Reserve duty. While it is hard to be away from family, they love this city so much that they bought a house in Midtown where they are raising two spunky daughters, E (May 2013) and L (January 2016), and a curious son E (November 2019). Kristin considers herself to be primarily a stay-at-home mom, but she occasionally escapes the shenanigans to teach college-level writing classes. If she had any spare time, she’d spend it curled up with a good book in a blissful state of hygge. Her family is happiest when on an adventure, especially camping, riding bikes, or enjoying all Memphis has to offer.

The Sweet Spot of Motherhood
It dawned on me while sitting on a plane this summer that I had reached a new level in parenting: the sweet spot of motherhood. My daughters--10 and 7--were sitting next to me with headphones on, watching movies they had selected and set up, with tray tables covered with snacks and drinks they had ordered. […]
