Hello, Mommy Moment Friends

Today I was featured on Mommy Moment, which is super exciting. Mommy Moment is an awesome mom blog- in fact, it's so awesome, it won Best New Blog 2010 in the Canadian blog awards.

If you are stopping by Ready. Set. Read! for the first time, here's what you'll find here.
If this is your first time here, look around and if you like what you see, follow me! Leave a comment too, so I can come and meet some of my mommy moment friends!

Let me share my love for mommy moment.
I love the content on Mommy Moment. On Mondays, Jodi features a Montessori activity, which I can usually easily implement with my boys. She also shares creative lunchbox ideas- which I can't implement cause when she makes an adorable flower pineapple ring with hummus (I totally made that up, I don't know if that's what she made), I make a truck grilled cheese that doesn't look ANYTHING like a truck. But I love to look at her cleverly designed lunchboxes. Also, there are blog tips, great stories, parenting advice, and GIVEAWAYS. LOTS of giveaways. The best thing about mommy moment, though, has to be one of their freelance writers, Kate Hayes from Adventures in Parenting. Ok, some of you know, Kate was my college suite mate- but she is an amazing writer! (And she made my cute Ready. Set. Read! button for me.) You can read her insightful and funny stories weekly on mommy moment or everyday on her blog. (By the way, I'm pretty sure the mommy moment "people" have no idea that I know Kate- they are just featuring a blog every weekend-- oh, and you can go here to find out how to be featured too).


  1. It is wonderful to feature you! Wow, you know Kate?!? That is awesome!
    Anyway, I am following your wonderful blog now and can't wait to read more! Thanks for the wonderful blurb about Mommy Moment!


  2. Popped by to check out your blog from Mommy Moment. You have a nice blog with neat ideas. We have the same Jingle bells book and did some different activities to go with it, more related to math though...
    I have not published my post about our Christmas themed Montessori works, as we put up our tree yesterday so I didn't work on my blog.
    Will link to your jingle bell post when I do though, as folks who will read my blog post about our Christmas activities would surely enjoy your blog post about the book and the jungle bell shakers.
    Happy Sunday! Colleen:)

  3. YEAH! Jackie you won our wonderful book give away. You might also be interested in a C.D. we featured last week called Readeez. You mentioned you had just purchased a C.D. that had the song "The Friendly Beast" on it. Readeez has some wonderful tunes on it for young children. Hope you stop by this week we are giving away two great little books for boys or girls who love trucks and construction. Thanks for stopping by and visiting at :) joyce
