Coming Soon: News, Reviews and Maybe Shoes!

Hi Everyone!

Well, it’s been beyond fun writing this blog. 

When I first started it a few months back, I wasn’t sure of what the commitment would entail, and to be honest, I didn’t really know what I was getting into. Really, I was looking for an outlet to express my thoughts related to my crazy life parenting my kids and working outside the home.

Since that time, I can honestly say that this blog has provided me much more than I would have ever imagined. An outlet – yes – it’s been a wonderful one to discuss the inane as well as the more serious aspects of parenting. That said, I have also had the opportunity to connect with some amazing bloggers, to read some incredible sites and to gain knowledge about some of the more stickier sides of parenting (sleep deprivation, anyone??).

While my primary focus for my blog will continue to be the craziness of parenting 5,000 kids and the inevitable mayhem that ensues with such a scenario, I will now be expanding into some additional areas that I’m really excited about!

Along with the parenting-related topics, I have been approached to do some product reviews, which I will be writing about very soon.

Here are the details regarding the additional areas that this blog will cover:
  • Product reviews – All review items will be related to kids and parenting, e.g. toys, etc.
  • Book reviews – Some parenting, some not. Okay, there might be more on the “not” side as I tend to read true crime and non-fiction personal memoirs. You’ve been warned.
  • Technology reviews – I’m a nerd and a geek and I like gadgets. 


  • Ongoing discussions of kids and parenting-related trends and topics that are currently in the news.

  • Okay, just a fantasy of mine, but maybe I can review some shoes? One can dream, right?

So my question today is: What would you like to see me write about? Any particular reviews/products, etc. that you’d like to have me address on this blog? I’m all ears!

    I just appreciate reviews that are honest. If every product is wonderful I start to question the sincerity of the blogger. Somehow, I don't think you'll have a problem with that. I've always appreciated the honesty in your posts.

    @Grumpy Grateful Mom Thanks so much, Janae! Yes, if anything, I'm always honest, sometimes to a fault (it's gotten me into trouble sometimes but hey – that's how it goes).
    Part of my reasoning for agreeing to do product reviews and similar posts is to help other parents who are looking for the best items and services for their kids. I know how much time is a premium for moms and dads, so having a trusted person – another parent – give you the goods is really appreciated. I know I certainly feel this way. To this end, my reviews will include the positive and negative (if there are any) aspects of the item at hand. For better or for worse!
    Thanks for commenting and your kind words 🙂

    I love the idea of product reviews as well as book reviews.

    @Melanie Thanks, Melanie – I will be doing both – and maybe more! We'll see 🙂

    I love reading reviews for educational toys/products for kids. I also love reading reviews for products that help parents de-stress. Best of luck to you! I look forward to reading all the new stuff!
