I’m Connie Roberts, wife and mom of two. I love my family. They are my life. I research family from a social and practical viewpoint, am a volunteer at my daughters middle school and attend parenting classes offered by the school system. Having two daughters who are 12 years apart gives me experience in raising children from infancy to adulthood

Please welcome my contributing writer, Leanne Palma, who will help with product reviews related to infants, toddlers and elementary aged children:

I am a mom of 8 wonderful, energetic children.  I have been married to my husband Steve for 21 years.  I was “the girl next door” and we were best friends even before we started dating.  I am a Christian and make the Lord the center of everything I do.  My childrens ages are 17, 15, 12, 9, 7, 4, 3, 1 (and a new one coming around New Years 2013). I homeschool 5 of the children and enjoy cuddling, reading and playing with the younger ones.  I am a baseball, soccer and lacrosse mom. It gives me great joy to watch my children play sports.  I am currently learning to play violin and my oldest children are the ones helping me along the way since they started way before me.  I love to cook home made meals and bake for my family. I believe in good nutrition and using healthy natural foods.  We raise our own chickens, which can be very interesting at times. We have 1 dog, Delilah and one cat, PJ, which is short for Praise Jesus. We thought with all these children we should keep our pet life fairly simple.

I am very active in the church I attend, volunteering in many areas such as Awana, Vacation Bible School, and Women’s Ministry. Even though I don’t think I sing very well, I sing with the Choir because it makes me happy to sing praises to the Lord.

I love hanging out with friends and family and making lots of new friends along the way.  Although, I am new to writing reviews, I have enjoyed working and look forward to working more in the future with Connie. I hope my reviews are able to assist you in choosing a product that best suits your family.
