Ok, if you’ve been around here for awhile you’ll know that one of my favorite blogs is 5MinutesforMom.com. I love the site because it’s fun to follow the twins and their mom as they grow this site and give us a glimpse into what it’s like to be twin WAHMs.
I love the fact that their mom works with them too. Of course I’m a bit partial to mom/daughter working relationships! For those who don’t know my mom works with me too. As a matter of fact, she’s also a fellow wahmmy here. She’s our recipe wahmmy, LeaAnn.
I just had a thought, how many people can actually say they have worked with both of their parents in different businesses? I worked with my Dad for a few years off and on in his landscaping business. Things weren’t quite as fun with his line of work as they are with mom though and we live 800 miles apart – isn’t the Internet amazing? Then again, if you had to choose would you choose mowing lawns, shoveling gravel, weedeating and that kind of thing over working at home and watching your kids grow too? Nah…I didn’t think so.
Now, back to the topic at hand. Janice & Susan started 5 Minutes for Mom and it has grown into this humongous site full of great information and giveaways and even greater causes. This year they get my vote for the Grand Wahmmy of all Christmas Giveaways in the blogosphere. Be sure to check out all the awesome prizes and contests!
I just entered one to win a copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I loved the Harry Potter series and was so sad that I wouldn’t have a new book to read anymore after the last one was released and I gobbled it up in like 5 days.
The one thing I love more than the giveaways at 5 Minutes for Mom is their Under the Tree program this year. They are helping to make sure that kids whose families can’t afford Christmas will not miss out on the magic of the holiday.
No kid should go without experiencing the sheer joy of Christmas. Unfortunately it happens far more than I even like to think about personally and the gals have partnered with tons of companies who have graciously donated toys and other items to see that as many kiddos as possible won’t have to go without. Head on over here to find out about the program.
