Celebrity Moms Have Nannies? You’re Kidding!

A recent MSNBC article scolded celebrity moms for not being more forthright about the fact that they employ nannies. That by not being honest with us stars are responsible for the unrealistic expectations we “regular women” heap upon ourselves.

Traveling Mom

Summer is family travel season and whether you’re packing up for a solo business trip, loading the cooler for a camping weekend or wondering how to keep a toddler occupied on a plane, Traveling Mom is a must-read. Look for product reviews, traveling tips, great deals, destination info and oh, so much more. (My favorite tip: pack a power strip when you travel. GENIUS.)

Snapdragon Ink

If you put the two most important parts of me together – motherhood and writing – and you stir in a little resolution about personal fulfillment and mental stability, you get this blog. Like most mothers out there, I absolutely adore my children and, like most mothers out there, I live dangerously close to that bend in the road, the one you’re not supposed to go around. The writing you find here keeps me away from that bend. It gives me just a bit more road. It slows life down long enough for me to remember the details. It helps me to focus on the good stuff and handle the bad stuff with more grace and humour. And there’s always room in my life for more grace and humour.

Baby Blackbird

Brandy is the fashion-industry blogger behind Baby Blackbird, a blog devoted to kids fashion, handmade toys and clothing, and family life. The mini street style posts are and adorable collection of reader submitted photos of their young fashionistas, but my favorite might be the Mini Celebrity posts where Brandy breaks down celebrity style into a kid-appropriate approximation. Happy Dressing!
