Hi! I’m Anitra.

And I’m a not your average mom blogger. I’m Harold’s blissful wife. Momager to #SuperKids #OliviaAllen and #AwesomeAlexAllen. Lover of all things chocolate and grammatical correctness, save this introduction. A degreed engineer and former corporate project manager. A vocalist who LOVES Disney and Broadway musicals. And a certified relationship coach who loves to help busy moms – like you and me – enjoy the time we spend with our families and stress less about all life throws our way. And that’s what The Mom On the Move is all about.

ABOUT THE BLOG

The Mom On the Move is a lifestyle and parenting blog that helps busy moms spend more meaningful moments with their families by getting more done in less time with less stress. This is my little space of the internet where I share what I have learned in my quest to be the best; the best wife for my husband, the best mother for my children and the best me I can possibly be. 

I was going about my life living the American dream. I had an engineering degree that led to a good corporate job, making lots of money. I married an awesome man who gave me 3 exceptional kids (but no dog), and we lived in suburban utopia. All was well with life.

But as my children grew, became more active and their individual brilliance began to show I felt divided. I needed to fully invest in my family without feeling guilty because of my career.

So, in 2014 I left a six-figure salary job as a corporate project manager for a Fortune 100 company to focus my time and attention on my growing family. The very next year my youngest began attending a top-ranked private school and my oldest daughter began traveling the country speaking to tween girls about confidence. I needed options to manage my time and reduce our household budget quickly. 

I began using the project management and communication strategies that made me successful on the job in my home. With a system for schedule management, money management and a dedicated focus on developing the unique brilliance of my own children in place, I began to share my strategies online to help other families as well. And The Mom On the Move was born.

I want to help you experience the bliss of having a marriage and parenting that works for you and your family using the same concepts you very likely use every day at work or running your business. By making small changes that impact how you approach your time, your finances and your emotions in an easy to follow, results-based manner you can successfully manage your most important project – your children, your marriage, and your own dreams – without falling apart. 

MEET THE FAMILY

The Hubs

We met at the tender age of 18 on the campus of Tulane University and have been going steady ever since. He inspired the story in my book Experience B.L.I.S.S. in Your Relationships and is known around these parts as #CoachDaddy. And he fries a mean piece of chicken.

My Super Kids

I have been entrusted with the lives of two amazing little girls and a bonus son. Mothering them has been one of the most rewarding endeavors of my life. And one of the most challenging. I’ve learned how to properly parent all of them and each of them. Every child has brilliance in him/her and it is up to us as parents to nurture, cultivate and bring it out of them.

Meet Anitra - theartist

#theartist

Trevone Allen is an aspiring rap/hip-hop artist whose taste in music varies greatly from Harold’s and mine.  A typical teenager, some days he wants to be a part of our family, and other days he doesn’t. He was the first attempt I ever had at parenting and has given me a new perspective on blended families and what it means to be a bonus mom. He is also known as #theboy since he’s the only male offspring.
