Hi! Welcome to Swing Shift Mom. I’m Kristin, and I am here to help you by sharing (mostly) easy recipes, travel destinations, and tips for balancing shift work life with family life.
I have lived in the Midwest my entire life. My husband, Mike, and I are the parents of three boys and have loved to travel with them since they were babies. We have been fortunate to visit 47 states with our children and have picked up quite a bit of travel information along the way.
I have worked swing shifts since 2010 and have picked up quite a few tips for working night shifts, transitioning shifts, and balancing shift work life with family life. My goal is to share some of these tips with you along with recipes and travel tips.
Having three boys, I have spent quite a bit of time in the kitchen. Although I love complex recipes on occasion, I have created quite a few recipes that can be on the table quickly or with little effort. This was born out of necessity so that we could have a family dinner no matter what shift I was currently working.
Our family is rounded out with our two dogs, Zeus and Atlas.
