Yes, I am a “Mommy Blogger”…


In exactly that order. I am a mommy first and a blogger second.

I hope you have all been enjoying your summer. I have been spending lots of time with my kids, preparing for the very real possibility that all three will be in school in the fall.

ToddlerBoy might be accepted into our school district’s preschool program. This would be an enormous benefit for him, so please keep your fingers crossed for us on that. KinderGirl is going into first grade, and SchoolGirl is entering fourth grade.

July was a rather…eventful…month, in which I was bitten by a brown recluse, lost a friend, and spent lots of time playing with the kids. August is gearing up to be just as busy.

If you are contacting me about product reviews, please keep in mind that turnaround times might be a little longer than usual unless there is a firm deadline.

I will be back to regular blogging in a fairly short amount of time. Until then, be safe and stay cool.

She’s been on Fox and Friends, The Nate Berkus Show, and The Daily Buzz, in addition to many ABC, NBC, CBS, and CW affiliate stations.  Continue reading
