What else I do: I run and do races with my teenager son.
Causes I've worked with and made a difference via blogging about: Last year my son had to get his tonsils and adenoids removed due to sleep apnea. What we thought was a bad winter cough was really severe sleep apnea. I blogged about the whole experience so other parents would learn through my son’s experience including what to expect from the surgery and healing as I had a hard time finding any info that I needed online.
I love cooking, baking and reviewing as well. My kind of mom!
