Redbook Magazine + Mommy Delicious = Total Sweetness

A few weeks ago, I caught myself having a conversation about the usual stresses of life -- I’d fallen behind on some things, I had several emails that I needed to respond to, I didn’t want to plop Aiden in front of the TV for a third day in a row just so I could squeeze it all in and bang it out really quickly, blah, blah, blah... You know the drill. 

After my mini rant, the rest of my conversation went a little something like this:
Her: And they want you to write for Redbook?
Me: Ummm… yep.
Her: About what, exactly?
Me: Ya know, motherhood. Young motherhood. Single motherhood. Dispelling the myths about young, single parents by talking about how “we totally got this” and can do a good job at it while juggling other things.
Her: Kinda like you’re doing right now?
Me: *blank stare*
Seriously though, I’m incredibly humbled and honored that I was chosen to be apart of the Redbook Magazine Blog, The Motherboard and I’ll be in great company with some other awesome Writers. It's always been my dream to write with a major magazine and I’m really, really psyched to be writing on the issues/lifestyle of younger, single parents, since, let's face it, we're sometimes glossed over in mainstream media. So… yay!

The Motherboard will be launching on November 30th so be on the lookout for it. (Of course, I’ll let you Lovelies know when my first article goes live.) This delicious mommy (Writer) will be contributing one article per week, so when you don’t catch me over here, come hang with me over there.

If you have any topics that you’d like me to touch upon, shoot me an email or leave ‘em in the comments.

I’m super psyched (did I say that already?!).

It’s gonna be so dope.

High-fives all around.
