Welcome

Congratulations on finding one of the best kept secrets in Huntsville, AL. Below is a “How To” Guide on everything at Rocket City Mom. We’ve built this site to be easy to navigate but we’ve grown a lot and to newbies, the content can seem overwhelming. Hopefully, after reading this, you’ll feel like an old pro.

Here you will find daily articles by local moms (and dads) about everything parenting. Have questions about your educational options? We’ve got that covered every Tuesday in our Education series. Need some ideas for what to do with the family this weekend? Each Thursday we post the Weekend Roundup where we tell you about all the family friendly events in the area that are free or really cheap. On Fridays we send you into your weekend with a laugh with our Mommyhood Moments where local moms share their favorite/most memorable stories of parenthood. Want help making healthy lifestyle choices or just looking for a little inspiration? On Wednesdays real moms discuss Health and Wellness and how they make it look easy. Still haven’t found what you’re looking for? No worries, on Mondays we cover everything else from gardening to breast feeding, babysitting to…whatever. If it’s important to moms, it will be here.

Looking for hard-data type information? Check out all the resources we have compiled for parents. Whether you are looking to Play and Learn, Eat and Shop, or Meet and Greet we can help. We’ve got the most comprehensive list of local Kids Eat Free deals in town, a Birthday Party Planner that makes throwing your next party a cinch, and a Youth Sports Directory with every sport under the sun. Looking for a moms group or club? How about a support group or homeschooling resources? We’ve got all that and so much more.

Looking for a recommendation for a preschool, plumber, pediatrician or other “P” related service. We’ve asked area moms to recommend their favorites A to Z and you’ll find them all in the Mom Recommended section.

Did I mention that this site will also take away all your parenting troubles and replace them with cold vanilla ice cream with hot fudge on top? So maybe we don’t literally do that, but it sure will feel like it. Check out our REVIEWS section for tips on which local restaurants are “safe” for kids, which parks have bathrooms and shade, and which area attractions are worth the money.

Still haven’t found what you need? Do a quick search on our site (located in the top right corner) and see if we’ve covered it. If we haven’t, feel free to send your ideas to editor@rocketcitymom.com. Finally, we’ve listed some of our most popular posts over the last few months so please do some reading and get to know Rocket City Mom.

We are thrilled you’re here and hope you are too. If you like what we’re doing, share it with your friends and be sure to leave a comment every once in a while. It’s what keeps us going :)
