About me & the blog :)

I just wanted to take a moment to explain where Just Mommin Around came from & a little about me.

I live on Cape Cod with my husband and two wonderfully crazy children, Dawn & PJ. When Dawn was born I was very adamant about continuing my newly started career & I worked 40-60 hours per week for the first 5 years of her life. When my husband took a job on the other side of the country, leaving him away from Dawn & I all but about 60 nights per year, I scaled back. Focused on spending more time with Dawn. When we decided it was time to add #2 to the family I knew some big changes would have to come with it.

At 30 weeks pregnant with PJ I was put on modified bed rest for signs of preterm labor. I gave up my second part time job & knew that I needed to search for a change, I didnt want to go back to working 40 hours a week but we needed some income. I was lucky to find a company, where I started when PJ was 2 months old, which let me work from home & with my baby. I could get Dawn on & off the bus every day. No more missing out on anything, no more babysitters, no more daycare.

But I also had a lot more time, and hence I became a "research mom" I researched every piece of gear we got PJ. I researched every toy, I shopped sales & I joined mommy groups. I LOVED immersing myself in my #1 job... mom.

PJ is now 2, I've researched(and purchased) more items than I even care to admit but I am so happy to have been chosen to be a Brand Ambassador of the guidance guide & parental guidance. I am now able to channel my knowledge of all these items and review our favorite things! All reviews are currently posted here at Mommin' Around and on my instagram @staceylynnephotography

I am always happy to answer questions, please feel free to ask! I will also be posting blogs with my favorite products, my experiences as a mom, and all things in between.
