Like so many modern celebrations, Baby Showers have arrived in the UK from North America. It’s a real tradition over there and, like High School Proms, Halloween and Black Friday, one of those exciting social events that is catching on big time over here.
The idea is simple but universally appealing. Throw a party for the pregnant mother and her…
As a new generation of influencers crop up on the net and veteran bloggers continue to idealize the way for interacting with brands and getting paid, companies the world over are vying for the attention of both. Some are wooing bloggers with the prospect of lucrative affiliate deals while others pile influencers with products for reviews, added with a monetary benefit. Some companies are flying…

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm not really a fan of trying to sum up my life in a few sentences. It usually makes me look pretty lame and boring... and ends with me making up a lot of things that I don't actually do... but here goes :)
The basics: I have been married for 2 years to my college sweetheart (who I actually knew in high school), and we have a 9 month old baby boy named Niall. My husband and I share the same values, which I think is really important, but we are very different in most other aspects. I think we compliment each other well, but we butt heads sometimes about what we want to do with our spare time.
I am also a big dreamer. I get really (overly) excited about a new idea, career path or invention almost every day. I also have a lot of semi-passions, none of which I have the time or money for at this point. They include dancing, yoga, wakeboarding, art, traveling and (drum roll please)... board games. Yes, I know, big loser. If I could find a group of people who would play Catch Phrase or Scrabble with me every Friday night, I'd be one happy lady.
Anyway, 2 things that I do have time and love for are playing with Niall and writing, which brings us all here! Enjoy :)
What is your blogging philosophy?
I try to take the exciting things that I'm going through in mommyhood and put my unique and sarcastic spin on it. Even though these experiences are new to me, every mom has probably gone through something similar, so I have to tell it from a different perspective. I also try to make fun of my inexperience as a first time mom.
I have been blogging since...

Welcome to MBC, Kerry. I joined your blog. I loved the video of Niall's first temper tantrum. I laughed so hard at your own reaction to his first tantrum. It brought back great memories. I remember long ago telling my Mom that she never taught me how to be a parent. I went and bought a book about discipline. I quickly learned that patience and understanding and smiling a lot is what discipline is all about at Niall's age. He's smart though. Just explain why he cannot touch the dvd player -- he will get it eventually. He probably understands more than we know. Have fun with that sweet boy! I would give anything to go back and do it all over again.
