A “mommy blogger,” PPD survivor, distance runner, and Disney aficionado who likes sipping on microbrews and snuggling with her cat.


Kimberly Zapata is the creator of Sunshine Spoils Milk , a blog dedicated to motherhood and mental health. Her work has appeared on Washington Post, Huff Post, Romper, Scary Mommy, Mamalode, YourTango, The Mighty, Yahoo Health, and in Lose The Cape: Never Will I Ever (and then I had kids!).


Tampa, Florida



Fun Facts

  • The first thing people notice about me:

    My pink hair, my Ralph Steadman-inspired tattoos, and — in the winter — my bright, orange coat. (Seriously. I look like a traffic cone.)

  • Myself, in three words or less:

    Work in progress.

  • My parenting motto:

    What doesn’t kill them makes them stronger, and keeps Mommy sane.
