Making of a Mom Can Party!

Stef and Jo

Johanna and I live about 3 hours away from each other so we don't see each other too often! We did, however, just spend about 3 fun days together! It was a blast to have her and her girls here! My kids love playing with them and I loved playing with her! While she was here we talked about Making of a Mom and our progress and how things are going. We are both very pleased with all of the progress we have been making. This website is now 3 months old!! We have expanded our content to include … [Read more...]

There is a link to … [Read more...]

Happy New Year! Let’s Set Goals – Part 1

Happy New Year! I know this is only a couple of days late, but hey, that's the way I roll. With the new year comes resolutions.

As blog master John Chow puts it, “I personally do not believe in making new year’s resolutions because they’re too easy to break. I like to make clearly defined goals and then create a plan to get it.” So with this new year comes a new set of goals. Some goals are personal to improve myself … [Read more...]
