Kari is a stay-at-home mom to six kids ranging in age from 2-13 years. As a mom, she wears many hats – not just because of the different stages her kids are in (toddlers, school-aged, and teens), but also because of the many experiences she has encountered in parenthood. She is a twin mom, a mom to an autistic child, a sports mom, a band mom, a dance mom, and more! Kari takes pride in being the best parent she can be for her kids. She loves to show the realistic, practical side of raising a big family and does her best to present motherhood authentically so that other moms feel encouraged and seen.
Gugu Guru: Tell us your favorite thing to do when you’re not creating content.
Kari Zimbric: I love to be outdoors. I was raised in an athletic family, so sports are a part of my kids’ lives too. But we also just love to have fun outside whenever possible – taking walks and bike rides, hitting all of the local playgrounds, going to the beach, or just hanging out in our backyard.
GG: What is your favorite snack?
KZ: Popcorn! All kinds, but if I had to choose one, it would be the O.G. Skinny Pop.
GG: What kind of content do you love to create?
KZ: Authentic, uplifting, sometimes a little sentimental. My goal is always to make other people feel good.
GG: What are your top 5 Mom Must-Haves?
KZ: Coffee (I LOVE Stok cold brew). Comfy shoes (Adidas or Birkenstocks). My phone to take ALL the pictures and videos. My written planner by Simplified – the only way to keep track of all of the kids’ activities and appointments in one place. And I don’t know how we lived before we got our Ninja double air fryer.
GG: What are some of your favorite products and brands?
KZ: Wonderfold, Ninja, Melissa & Doug, Step 2, Learning Resources, Old Navy, Kohl’s, Under Armour, Stride Rite
