I do whatever it takes, a diet heavy on chocolate and caffeine, Gregorian chants, whatever, to maintain inner peace among motherhood, career and the pursuit of domestic glory. Like other moms today, I strive for balance but makes do with a multi-tasking juggling act. I'm mama to a toddler and a preschooler and began my blog, www.MommyCribNotes.com, to give other moms a "cheat sheet" of discoveries, tips and gadgets that can make parenthood easier.

My work has also appeared in Parenting Early Years, Parenting School Years, The Huffington Post, and StyleLine magazine among others.
