About Us

Crystal Gareau is the creator and main author of the Busy Mom Diary. She is a full-time working, potty-mouthed and tempered, home-cooking, thrift-finding thirty-something mom on a budget.  She lives in Ontario, Canada with her family, including two children, ages 12 and 15. The Busy Mom Diary was originally created as a platform to share personal family adventures, including raising a daughter with mental health issues. We are amazed that it has grown leaps and bounds. We now offer helpful advice on parenting, breastfeeding, weight loss and fitness, pregnancy and many other topics.


Cindy Price is a Northern Utah wife, mom, and writer. She has experience writing educational content in the many areas of parenting, with an emphasis on teen-related issues, from which she applies and expounds on her personal experience raising three teenagers.
