Hi there!

Thanks for stopping by. I am Stacey – wife to Steve, Mom to two fur babies (Turbo and Shelby) and Mommy to one human baby (Ethan).

By day I am an animal physiologist writing my PhD and part-time business owner selling organic fertilizer, cloth nappies and baby products. By night I am a Mommy and wanna-be blogger.

I absolutely love nature, the outdoors and I am a bird nerd.

This blog is about parenting, home stuff like cooking and gardening, natural baby products, nature and my absolute passion for cloth diapering.

Why ZooMama?

I am a Zoologist by training and I sometimes feel like I have a Zoo at home with all the craziness that happens. I am also a very proud Mama and it has become so much a part of my identity.

My catch phrase I live by is “This IS my zoo, and these ARE my monkeys!”. It is adapted from a Polish proverb… “Not my circus, not my monkeys!” meaning not my problem. I live with a lot of noise and chaos so sometimes its hard to believe this really is my zoo. Despite that… I really love them all and once they are all asleep… its fun to sit quietly and reflect on their exploits.
