A couple of weeks ago I met a mom at the Learning Expo who had recently moved to the area and had just come across our site. She told me how much she enjoyed reading about all that was going on in the area and how happy she was that she found us. I had a smile on my face the rest of the day. THAT, is what I live for. It’s why I originally built this site and why I work so tirelessly at it four years later.
Help a Local Mom: Share Your Family Favorites
I was that mom and I know exactly what it felt like to be in a new town with no relatives and no friends, no one to ask when you’re looking for a good first birthday cake, or the best storytime, or a favorite dance studio. When I started building this site, the Mom Recommended Directory was one of the first sections I did (after Kids Eat Free and Birthday Party Planner). It’s a great place to look for all kinds of recommendations all made by our readers over the last few years. But sometimes it’s nice to be in the know about the local “favorite” which is why we are asking our readers to nominate their Family Favorites in 20 different categories.[sws_pullquote_left]Think of it as a small contribution to all the moms new to the area or just new to mothering who are looking for a little advice. [/sws_pullquote_left] Take a minute to nominate your favorite local park, bakery, martial arts studio and more. Think of it as a small contribution to all the moms new to the area or just new to mothering who are looking for a little advice. In two weeks, we’ll compile the nominations and start asking you to vote. Then in April we’ll announce all the Rocket City Mom Family Favorites. We know it will be a list that ALL local families will find useful. Plus, we’re kind of excited to see who comes out on top!
