Real Mom, Real Tired Erica Brennes Blogger On Camera Spokesperson Austin TX

Real Mom, Real Tired by Erica Brennes

Hello and thanks for stopping by! I'm Erica Brennes, founder of Real Mom, Real Tired. I started my blog so I'd have a place to share what products and activities make life as a working mom a little easier.

The name Real Mom, Real Tired came to me when I was filling in as the Morning Traffic Anchor at KXAN in early 2019. I was waking up at 3am to go do the morning Austin traffic report on NBC, juggling three clients and doing my best to balance life as a mom, wife, home owner and just generally as a person: I was tired!

As a former TV news anchor, I hope to use my platform to share great stories and also offer my skills as an on camera spokesperson to partner with great brands I love and respect. So far, I've been able to work with great brands and represent them on NBC, CBS, Fox and The CW in my hometown of Austin, Texas.

Becoming a mom didn't come easy and that experience is something I think of every single day. Hopefully you never find yourself on a fertility journey you never expected to be on, but if you do struggle with fertility issues, please reach out for support and advice through the CONTACT tab at the top of my website.
