Please help me welcome back Jessica from The Wondering Brain, Natasha from Epic Mommy Adventures my two amazing cohorts in fun, who are joining me on a permanent basis for This Momma’s Meandering Mondays and the fabulous Ophelia from Latina Mama Rama our lovely September co-host!

“I’m a Gen Xer and work full time as a Special Projects Person for a university. I am also a full time mommy to 2 boys, ages 19 and 2. To top it off, I am also a full time Doctoral Learner for the University of Phoenix. I started writing this blog in January 2013 because I was suffering from writer’s block in school. I like challenging myself in whatever I do. I figured if I held myself accountable for writing, why not display all my crazy thoughts out to the public? Thus, The Wondering Brain was born!”

“I am the author and editor of Epic Mommy Adventures, Natasha is a 30-year old single, working mommy and graduate student. She enjoys blogging about her entertaining adventures with her 2-year old son and all of the things that motherhood brings. She has an ongoing series on her blog, What’s For Lunch Mommy, focused on simple and healthy meal choices for toddlers. Visit Epic Mommy Adventures for good laughs, giveaways, recipes, and so much more!”

“Latina, wife, mama of 2 boys. Love food & coffee, clean freak. Always on the go jumping from one thing to another. LatinaMamaRama is a lifestyle blog where family, food and culture is discussed.”

Now it is time to introduce our favorite This Momma’s Meanderer’s from last week, and boy oh boy it was a difficult choice! Don’t forget to grab your “I Was Featured” badge of honor!

Jessica’s favorite came from Melissa from Home On Deranged with her post “5 Ways To Help My Babies Dream Big
Saying, “I loved her tips. I often hear myself say these a few times to my children, then I remind myself of how growing up was, when my mom told me I couldn’t do things. It was such a joy kill! Good reminder to encourge our children to grow and experience the world.”

Natasha’s favorite post came from Nikki at Girl Wife Mom with her post “10 Reasons 31 Is NOT The New 21” –
Saying, “I love the comparison that Nikki makes between being 21 and being 31. It’s amazing how much can happen in just 10 years. Nikki had me laughing and sighing all at the same time. I definitely loved the post and I hope to read many more great posts on her blog, GirlWifeMom.”

Ophelia’s favorite came from Elena at The Silberez Life with her post “How To Recover A Round Storage Ottoman” – Saying, “I really enjoyed this! It seemed to be complicated but it is so simple. I want to go get a sewing machine and learn to sew!”
My favorite also came from Melissa from Home On Deranged with her post “5 Ways To Help My Babies Dream Big
“I was rarely allowed to do anything the brought about my own personal growth, because I was a “girl” or that there was something “wrong” with me because I liked tattoos. While I can’t say that I indulge every whim that my kids come up with, I try with all of my heart to encourage the things they like, or even to look silly because it is okay to be wacky sometimes!”
