My Mom is Awesome
Spring is in the air which means it's time to dust off those pocketbooks and get ready for the sunny days. Here are all of the things you need (okay, fine, no one needs a monogrammed wine stopper) to get in the mood for the season.
For Your Mama
Not sure what to buy your mama? This list should get you started.

Kindergarten registration for the next school year is already underway in many communities.
Schools have to prepare well in advance to welcome the new little bodies into the building, almost as much as the parents who are going to be saying their teary-eyed goodbyes come next fall.
Moms have a lot of prep work to do.
You have to buy school supplies and school clothing. You have to fill out a ton of paperwork and make sure your child has all of their shots. But you ...
Lots of bloggers have niches, or categories, they fit into nicely.
There are crafting bloggers and food bloggers, mama bloggers and daddy bloggers, fashion bloggers, tech bloggers, and even bloggers who talk about nothing but blogging.

In an effort to be more gainfully employed once my children went back to school, I took a job as a nanny.
It wasn’t my first go round the nanny pen; I spent time as one in college too.
And I've found, even after adding motherhood to my resume, not much has changed about the job, aside from the pay. When I was a nanny in the 90s, I was lucky to bring home $20 for the day; now that’s what people are making in an hour, at least!
