Hi! I’m Alison, also known as Mommy. Sometimes I forget I have a real name but I do! I’m married 5 years, I was pregnant before our first anniversary (the fertility clock was ticking)
One baby is 4 and the other just turned 3. Much to my surprise, I’ve become a homeschool mom which I love.
Why I Started Blogging
When I have my first baby for 7 months pregnant, I was unexpectedly laid off because of the company terrible the state of the economy. I became a stay-at-home mom overnight and as you can imagine finances were tight.
Because we quite suddenly became a one-income family, we had to make some major changes. We were already paying off credit card debt and putting money into savings but we had to do more.
I really love being a stay-at-home mom but I am also the type that needs a project. Something to challenge me, keep me learning, and use as an excuse to not clean and cook all day. I decided to start a blog that would specifically help pregnant women (hence the name Smile Parents), as well as moms, find great deals and helpful parenting tips. It’s a work in progress that I hope will be able to help more and more families as time goes by : )
