Hello, People. I Work.

My kids now go to daycare two days a work, which leaves me with a blissfully quiet house and some time to get things done. Some of the time goes into coordinating the lives of my family… Bug and LadyBug have a seemingly neverending supply of appointments and paperwork and so on. And there are [...]

Social Media and Monetization

There has been some talk recently about the monetization of Twitter streams. Some of the Twitter divas would like to capitalize on their large pool of followers by selling ads on their Twitter streams. I’m disappointed. Why does everything have to monetized? We spend time with our kids without billing someone. We read books or [...]

Changing and Growing

It is time for a change. I have been home for more than 3 years now, since before Bug was even born. I am so thankful that I’ve had the opportunity to be home full-time with my kids. It’s amazing watching them learn new skills and try out their first words. I love visiting the [...]

WAHM Water Cooler

They say you should surround yourself with the type of people who reflect the person you’d like to be. I don’t think I know those people. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have some fantastic friends. They’re smart and kind and generous and all of them embody many qualities I aspire to. But now I’m [...]

Nancy Traversy Interview

Nancy Traversy, CEO and co-founder of Barefoot Books, was interviewed recently on the podcast, Just One More Book. The interview is interesting; I always find Nancy’s story of the Barefoot journey compelling and I have a lot of respect for her as a female entrepreneur and long-time WAHM (she and co-founder Tessa Strickland started the [...]

Book of the Month Club

So… the plan, if I get my act together, is to start a virtual book of the month club here at More Than Mommy. I’d like to highlight some of my favorite books from Barefoot and include activities to go along with the general theme of the book. I will offer a discount on the [...]

I’m back.

There was another “surprise” I was waiting to share, and it’s that we’re expecting our second child (a girl) this June. It was a surprise for us as well! Anyway, the date is approaching and I’m looking forward to meeting her. The Christmas season was quite busy with Barefoot Books, in particular. I can’t believe [...]

Goin’ Barefoot!

( Business Stuff andGifts andMe )

I have been holding off on announcing my latest endeavor because we were waiting on our snazzy new sales rep websites. Well, they’re here and they’re great! I signed on with Barefoot Books in August because I love the entire product line. We’ve got multi-cultural books, multi-generational books, board books, paperbacks, anthologies… we’ve got books [...]
