About Me

Hi there!

  First of all thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this. You are probably wondering who I am and what makes this blog any different from all the others out there. Well first of all I am a mom of 3 boys and a baby girl ranging from 1 year old to 18 years old! I am a 15 year baby industry veteran! It goes without saying I have changed many diapers, spent numerous years with a baby on the breast and watched the ever changing products in the baby industry! Things have changed since I had my first born 18 years ago. It was 3 point harnessed car seats and going to forward facing didn't have an age. Now flipping your baby before 2 years is a sin and well I do believe this to be a great change for the better and safety of our offspring it is crazy to think how we all survived!

I like to think of myself as a knowledgeable source for all things baby. (some may say and expert) I have used and sold in my store so much baby its hard to count how many strollers I have folded, pushed and talked about.

2017 is an exciting year with the in store meet and greet at Newport Cottages in Newport Beach, CA this spring and that I will be speaking at the Mommycon event in Vancouver, Canada! When I left the baby business to move with our family from Canada to California I knew I wanted to find a balance of staying in the business without the long days and stress of owning a store. Turning to blogging and working with great companies has been so rewarding!

Last year I partnered with a company called Nook Sleep to launch the Carmen the Modern Mom playmat. With great success we did a spring 2017 sale with 2 new colors.

I have also been selected by a company Mayarya to design a dress for their spring/summer line! That is a dream to have something I created be worn on women around the world.

With many more projects in the works I hope you enjoy following along our crazy lives!

ps. I also work for my husbands company Fox and Fiddle California. I am the design gal and creative director. Yup! I keep my plate very full with 2 jobs and 4 kids.
