We know that being a mom is much more than a job. It’s a full-time-never-get-a-break-don’t-put-that-in-your-mouth-no-means-no-lifestyle filled with ups and downs, laughs and tears and memories by the minute. Sure, it can be confusing and completely overwhelming at times, but hey, that’s why we’re here.
The two Jen’s originally created this site, and now a team of moms with different views will add to this daily blog. Our goal is to make this the ultimate resource for Charlotte moms and moms-to-be on a variety of activities, events and motherhood-related topics (best deals on hip new products, navigating the school systems, kids eat free, etc). This is a place for us to share as well as our readers, and we don’t pretend to know everything here. But, we’ll try our best to provide you with plenty of info we’ve learned through research, trial and, unfortunately, error.
What’s Courtenay’s story? I want to know more about Jen. I think I know Krista from somewhere, but where? Find out everything you ever wanted to know (and some things you didn’t) about our talented and insightful bloggers who know an awful lot about kids’ stuff and the latest goings on around town. We’re moms, wives, co-workers, friends, people in the know and, best of all, your guides on this crazy little thing we call Charlotte Smarty Pants.
“My sweet baby is driving me crazy!”
“Is this normal?”
“What do I do now?”
I often hear from moms who need a little advice, want to connect with other moms, or just want to make sure they’re not off track. I love that!
That’s why I’m starting Moms Meet Up: a great time to discuss your concerns and questions about your middle school tween and get others’ perspectives and feedback.
Moms Meet Up is an hour-long drop-in at my office, scheduled twice a month, for moms like us.
Here are the kinds of things we can discuss at a Meet Up:
Should I make my older daughter tell me all her technology passwords or has she earned the right to privacy?
What do I do when my son battles back on everything I say?
Is Instagram safe?
When are girls old enough to walk around the mall alone?
How can I help my son make more friends at a new school without seeming pushy?
YOUR questions here!
Join me and other fun moms to share ideas, laugh, learn, and leave feeling refreshed and empowered. Meet Ups are already scheduled for January and February. More dates to come! Check back often and follow me on Facebook for updates.
