It is nice to meet you! I am Christine, The Choosy Mommy. I have been wanting to start this blog for a while now and I am finally glad to do so with the help of my dear friend and website/graphic design guru Marianne (seriously, if you need someone to do this line of work for you, let me know! She is AMAZING!)
So I will start out by telling you about myself and my goals with this website (which could change as we move forward but we’ll let that happen when it does).
I live in western Pennsylvania where 4 months out of the year it is nice and sunny and the other 8 months it either rains or snows. OK – I could be exaggerating but that is what it feels like. I have been married to my husband Adam since 2009, and we have two beautiful children, Capri and Cam, and two dopey dogs, Mark and Axel. I say they are dopey because, let me be honest, they are just like two more children that I must look after all day.
My hobbies include…well…nothing lately to be honest. Cam was just born in May (2015) and my hobbies have been feeding and changing him and keeping Capri in check. When I didn’t have a newborn, my hobbies included working out (but not super seriously), laying out by the pool (and now I have to always be IN the pool with Capri) and shopping (which I get to do like once in a blue moon now).
I LOVE finding a good deal. I get really excited and have to tell everyone I know about it. I am not a super couponer but I do clip what I can and I love saving money on all my grocery apps. I also love sharing products that I really like with my friends and family. I am not one to hold something secret
– unless it IS a secret…
And that leads me to becoming The Choosy Mommy. This came about when I started working for Choosy Kids, a small company based in Morgantown, WV. This is a company devoted to promoting healthy habits in young children and their families. It was founded on the belief that healthy preferences for food choices, physical activity, and daily health routines can be developed early in life. Choosy Kids honors the role that parents, early educators, and health care providers play in helping preschool children prefer healthy options. The Choosy Mommy came to life as I began writing for the blog from the mom perspective (we also have bloggers who are teachers, nutritionist, dental experts, etc.) and I shared my two cents on food choices, physical activity, and daily health routines plus so much more! I have a ton to share but didn’t want to take over the Choosy Kids’ blog so I decided it was best to grow The Choosy Mommy brand!
And here is the growth. I am expanding upon The Choosy Mommy and using this platform as a way for moms (and dads and grandparents and WHOEVER!) to find the best information for their children of all ages and themselves. I have my two kid testers, my hubby, and I am sure my nieces and nephews will get in on the fun too. My goal is to become your go-to resource for information on food, toys, health products, television, music, things to do with your kids, travel and all things mom, dad, kid and family!
So I’d love to get to know you a bit better and find out what you’d like to learn about from The Choosy Mommy. Tell me in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be sure to get back to you!
