Four's Company

Posted on May 27, 2013 at 6:39pm 0 Comments

I was recently gratified to learn of a survey of American mothers concluding that three is the most stressful number of children for a woman to have. Discovering this pleased me since my husband and I have three young kids, twin 6-year-olds and a 2-year-old, and we often feel harried by the relentlessness of parenting them. After reading the stories—to which, incidentally, several friends and my brother sent me links—I realized we were not alone in sensing that we were outnumbered and…


Pole Vaulting With Plastic Bats

Posted on May 20, 2013 at 9:21pm 0 Comments

This afternoon, I carried a small handful of cookies into the yard, one—well, maybe two—for me and one for each of my three kids.

“Ooo!” squealed my 6-year-old son. “How many? How many?”

“When someone brings you a treat, you don’t say, ‘How many’!” I scolded. “You say, ‘Thank you.’”

“Thank you!” cried Griffin, grabbing his cookie and loping off across the grass.

As I watched him go, I found myself worrying that he might turn into “that guy”: the one avidly pumping…


Last Night I Met Some Ladies

Posted on May 17, 2013 at 10:30pm 0 Comments

Last night I met up with some ladies for drinks and weary of confronting what ails the world—the crisis in Syria, the monster in Cleveland, the Mother’s Day shooting in New Orleans—we opted instead for sharing some essentials within our reach.

First came a primer on bikini waxes. One of our cohort had recently visited the aesthetician she regularly sees, and so she reasonably assumed that the practitioner had examined her file before setting to work on her undergrowth. But when my…

Greetings from the Tampa Bay :) My name is Lea, and I am the author of Mother Baby Child - I started this blog to share my experience in having a baby just before my 1st son was about to turn 18 years old, as well as what life is like as a married mom after being single for so many years. I also blog about Christianity, baby and child stages, homeschooling, ADHD, Autism, Blog Marketing, etc. I share a lot on that blog during the non-summer seasons.

I also have a new healthy lifestyle choices and weight loss blog - - to accompany my Skinny Body business. I am working hard to complete the design of this new blog, so that I can provide valuable health lifestyle and weight loss information, as well as to share a solid opportunity for moms that want / need to make money by working at home.

I invite you to explore my blogs and provide your feedback.

I have GFC and my network links on both of them.

Now that my baby is older, I have more time to meet the moms. I am really excited about this!

I look forward to reading your blog and networking with you here at MBC :)

Hugs & Blessings!

Welcome!  This is such a great club to be part of.  My name is Shanna and my blog is

I provide bloggers with training, support and a fully optimized, low tech, "ready to start blogging" blog platform.  I struggled for a couple years with my old blog teaching myself how to set it up, optimize it and monetize it.  Everything changed for me when I started my new blog.  I don't have to do all of the background stuff anymore.  I simply write on and promote my blog.  Huge weight lifted.  Plus, within a few days of starting I was already getting leads, daily!


I also write about couponing.  Along with blog "how-to's", home businesses, being the mom of a 20 month old girl and more.  I am in the process of moving my coupon database and printables to the new, super awesome platform.


Anyhoo, I hope you make some great contacts here.  Feel free to shout if you have questions.
