About the blog

Established in 2010, Misfit Mama Bear Haven began as a way of connecting with other parents as I came up with solutions to throwing a fabulous kid’s party on a budget. Over the years, as the blog grew, Misfit Mama Bear added stories about family, homeschooling, and life’s ups and downs that became the main staples of the blog. After a hiatus due to health, Misfit Mama Bear returned to keep covering parenting and homeschooling issues from the view of living with a chronic illness.

The Misfit Mama Bear Haven provides a unique perspective as I cover parenting from the standpoint of a mom of a preschooler but also as a mom of a tween and a teen. It’s chaotic, and it’s messy, but the stories are 100% real!

Meet the Misfit Mama Bear Haven Family!

Our family of five consists of Bubby, Sissy, and Crankles. They range from 16 to 5, and it really keeps us parents on our toes! My son loves gaming and retro computers. My older daughter is the queen of memes, and my youngest…well, it’s really Crankles’ world. We just live in it!

Carl and I have been married for 17 years and met while studying in Poland. He works as a geologist, and when I am not blogging and helping people with their social media, I run Retro Rosie, a pin up boutique.

Our unique family dynamic gives for a lot of stories and definitely keeps life interesting. Make sure you subscribe for parenting tales, homeschool fun, and whatever else we find to share along the way.
