SUNSET -- The women in our lives definitely make a difference with their guidance and caring for home and family. We found one such woman in Sunset and gave her a High 5.

When we arrived at Kim Wynder's home at 8 a.m., she opened the door with a smile and welcomed us inside. Arms full with one baby, Kim's day was already busy.

The Wynders have five children -- Max, Michaella, Abbey, Rusty, and Tyler -- all under the age of 5. You can imagine Kim's day caring for them.

I want them to have wonderful memories of being young and doing things as a family.

Her husband, Mike, said, "She's just an amazing person to me overall."

Mike says Kim is a supermom. But with a set of twins and three kids in diapers, days can be rough. However, she always remembers her mission.

"I want to be a good mom for them," Kim said. "I want them to look back and have wonderful memories of being young and doing things as a family."

"When I get overwhelmed we just go out and play," she added. "We drop cleaning, we drop everything and we just go out and play. Spending time with my kids, that's a reward."

Mike said, "I think the main thing is just the fact that we've always wanted our family together."

Kim told KSL she always wanted to be the mom of a big family. "I've been blessed with that," she said. "And I am happy. I love my kids."

Kim also works part-time as a photographer, a hobby she has always loved. Her husband says whatever Kim puts her mind to, she's able to accomplish.

As part of the High 5, Kim received a gift basket from our partners at Les Schwab.

If you know someone who deserves a High 5, nominate them here.
