We are moms and moms-to-be who value each other’s experiences. We are always calling and emailing other moms with questions and reassurances. New challenges and questions exist with every pregnancy and each child. We hope to help make some of these challenges go smoother with articles, how-to’s, tips and tricks, stories from our own experiences, product reviews, book reviews, and current events. Every article is up for discussion, so we can learn from others who have already “been there, done that.”
The articles on The Mom Crowd are written from a “this worked for me” point of view. We understand that each child and situation is different. Use your Mom Instinct to decide if a suggestion will work for you and your child.
We are excited to fly the turbulent sky of motherhood together!
I am the proud mom to three very active kids: Caitlyn age 2, Aiden age 3 and Evan 5 years old. Recently, we started our first year as homeschoolers as our oldest entered Kindergarten and began attending K-12. I was an early childhood educator for over 15 years and have worked with children for over 20 years. I have also been an Autism Early Interventionist, working with young children and their families who were just being diagnosed on the spectrum. I have a Bachelors Degree in Marketing and a Masters Degree in Management which has come in very handy as I navigate the crazy world of being a work from home mommy! For the last five years I have also been a freelance writer and had the pleasure of sharing my knowledge and passion for family and children through many different media sources. I have been featured on AOL's Holidash website, on the Fed Up With School Lunch Blog and a variety of other news and media outlets. I also enjoy baking, cooking and crafts. I love helping moms navigate the skies of motherhood and am so happy to be managing The Mom Crowd.
I am a Mommy to 3 beautiful kids, Nellie 5yo, Olivia 2yo, & our newest addition Anthony 3mos. I always wondered what motherhood was going to be like, but never did I think it would be this amazing. My husband & kids are my life. My world revolves around them. I wake up each morning wondering what the day will unfold to be like, but I have faith everyday that I will be carried through to make the right choices as a mother & wife. I am a WAHM, as well as homeschool our 5yo. My days are crazy, and my nights are not long enough. But I’ve learned to accept that, that’s what motherhood is all about. Enjoying each moment for what it is, and trying my hardest to do right in every situation with my family. Once the day is coming to an end, I love enjoying time with my husband over a nice glass of wine talking about the days events. I always keep my marriage close to my heart as my husband is my rock and he deserves to be loved as much as my kids are. After all, he is my biggest little kid. I’m happy to be able to embark on this journey as part of The Mom Crowd. I hope you find my stories to be realistic as I am a Mom that goes through the ups & downs like all other Moms do.
I’m a happily divorced, independently single mom to two adorable girls ages 7 & 10. I reside in Orange County, California and spend most days working as a caregiver for my nephew in my brother and sister-in-law’s home. My previous employment has consisted of being a live-out nanny, preschool teacher, and child care director, and I’ve also worked as a Club Seat Supervisor at the Honda Center (formerly the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim). I adore children whole-heartedly and believe they truly are our eyes and soul of the future! I love dining out, movies, camping, traveling (especially Carnival Cruise Lines), and enjoy spending time with friends. I hope the articles I provide, give you a reason to smile, laugh, cry, help enlighten you, or model what you currently do, hope to do, or simply just wonder about. Being a woman is such a glorious thing. Of course being a mom, is the juiciest icing on the trickiest and tastiest of cakes! Enjoy… .
I am the proud mommy of two boys Kristopher 6 and Zakary 3! Being a military wife and having the privilege of being a stay at home mom is the most incredible job I’ve ever had. My oldest son just started his very own adventure in school! He is a kindergartener this year and at the top of his class! He is my little over achiever being in the advanced math and reading program! He enjoys making people laugh and helping others any chance he gets, although I’m still waiting for him to apply his helping skills here at home! My youngest, Zakary, is just the sweetest little thing I’ve ever met! Always happy and always trying to learn new things. He enjoys being around the older kids and trying his best to keep up them in everything they do. He’s got quiet the personality and its growing everyday! My husband, though he is deployed most of the year and we rarely actually get nights together, is the best father and friend anyone could ask for! Together we are an unbeatable team. We are high school sweethearts and have been together for almost ten years! Needless to say we have had more hard times then easy ones and have done nothing but lean on each other to pull through. Our time being a military family and a young family has given us a lot of experience and a lot of great stories to share! I’m so excited to be apart of The Mom Crowd team! I hope to bring new light to topics and share my hilarious mom stories and adventures with you! Everyday is a learning experience and new beautiful memories are made! What better way to share my stories and advice then with other moms across the country!
I am a happily married, stay at home mother of one super fantastic one-year-old boy named Jackson. He and I get to spend everyday together which is the biggest and best gift of my life. While my husband works hard to support us financially, I take on many of our home responsibilities, which at times can be crazy with my toddler helper constantly at my side. Our little family makes the most of what have and have found that through love and hard work we can make a little go a long way. I am very excited to join the Mom Crowd! I look forward to sharing with other moms and hopefully making meaningful connections along the way.
Although I am not a mother yet, I have the hopes of finding a great man, being able to financially support myself, and settling down to have a family. I am enjoying sharing my experiences, hopes and visions for motherhood, life, my future, and navigating all of it. By day I am a Correspondent, an Actress, lover of all things Broadway, South America, the Middle East, and Reggae. By night, I'm a dreamer who believes that anything is possible.
