Hello and thanks for stopping by! I'm Erica, the morning traffic anchor on KXAN. I'm an Austin mom, a native Austinite and founder of Real Mom, Real Tired. I started my blog so I'd have a place to share my life as an Austin mom, working and finding fun things to do with my family and products that make life 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 reports 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!
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 know you're not alone.
