Mom About Town: Renee Niemann

Insta-fabulous Renee Niemann, mom to Zoe (9) and Phoebe (6), seemingly is hard to keep up with­ – but we caught her and asked all the questions! 

She shared that she started her wildly popular Instagram account @Fakeadultmom as an outlet to vent about that unspoken side of parenting and adulthood that is all joy and no fun. “Plus, that’s who I am. I’m a mom who’s faking her way through adulting every day. No amount of education prepares you for breast pumps, Diaper Genies, and secretly throwing out hoards of artwork without your children noticing.”

As well, she keeps busy with Bambino, a babysitter app, helping to bring it to New Orleans. “I am always in need of a babysitter at the last minute, and great babysitters are often treated like precious family heirlooms that people dare not part with. That’s why I needed Bambino! I asked if I could bring the app to the greater New Orleans area and voila, here we are!”

5 Things Renee is Loving Right Now!


Mad Darling Candles! I am obsessed with these handcrafted 100% Soy Candles made here in New Orleans.

I hardly ever wear makeup due to my extremely sensitive skin, but I love Tatcha’s “The Silk Canvas.” It’s a protective primer that gives you a very light filter finish.

My NY resolution this year is to outsource what I can. My personal time and my time with my family is valuable. I can’t do it all and allowing myself the freedom to outsource some responsibilities (laundry service or meal-kit companies) are going to be my lifesavers!

We all love Creole Creamery so much! They have such a unique selection of flavors ranging from standard children’s favorites to flavors like Balsamic Pear (a personal favorite).
