Welcome! My name is Kim and I am the writer of Co-Pilot Mom.
You may be wondering, so I’ll let you know right away: I’m not really a pilot.
NOPE. I cannot fly a plane. I am a Co-Pilot Mom to two young Captains, Alpha (age 12) and Bravo (age 7.) I write about our lives as a family of food-and-camping-loving geeks living in Nova Scotia, Canada.
I call myself Co-Pilot Mom because I believe that parenthood is a (sometimes tricky) balance of staying close to our children and letting them stretch their wings. I am there with my Captains in the cockpit until the day comes when they are flying on their own. I am the Chewie to their Han, so to speak.
Who’s flying this thing?
Most days, we are just flying by the seat of our pants.
Here’s what you should know about me:
I am pixie-cut-wearing boy mom who is devoted to red lipstick and scarves.
I have been married to my husband, David, since before the Star Wars prequels – or 18 years. One of those.
We have 2 boys: Captain Alpha (12) and Captain Bravo (7.) They are your typical Minecraft-obsessed, LEGO-building, game-playing wonder kids. (I may be a teensy bit biased.) I am trying to raise them to be good, kind people. Or at least to not wipe their noses on their shirt sleeves.
I am a fan of science fiction and Jane Austen. (As in, if The Doctor showed up in the TARDIS, I would want to go visit Jane – as long I am back in time to meet the afternoon bus.)
I love to cook and bake and I share some of our favourite recipes on In-Flight Food.
We love camping and eagerly await those warm summer days when we can get back to the woods. Or, you know, Provincial Campground. I write about our outdoor adventures on Summer Camping.
I’m a geek, married to a geek, raising geeks. I write about things my geeky heart loves, like social media and blogging, photography (I’m a self-taught Padawan-learner shutterbug,) and general geek musings in Geek Out.
I am happiest when my family is all together. And when I am writing, cooking, taking photographs, and belting out songs in the car.
I write about life, the food we eat, and the things we love.
