Today is a “Happy” Day!


Welcome to Shine On Mom! I’m so happy you stopped by. I am really excited to launch this site and start connecting with parents.

My three kids have given me more than enough to write about. They are what get me out of bed in the morning, sometimes against my will. The reason I had to learn how to cook (I’m not sure we can fully call it that yet) and the reason I cry with joy and pain (sing it if you know it). Okay cry out in exasperation sometimes, but not pain, it just worked for the song. I am a news junkie, a jean-a-holic, my weakness is celebrity news and music makes me happy.

This space is my happy place to share my experiences, things I love and solutions that work for me. I hope you will share your own experiences so we can all learn and help one another SHINE ON. I will be updating content on a regular basis so connect with me on social media for updates or sign up for a weekly post recap via email (right over there to the right).

Not only is it the first day of Shine on Mom, it is the first full week of SPRING! If you are like me and living in a cold climate with children then this is a really really big deal! No more snowpants, snow boots, battles over mittens, or kids home from school. Hurray for us! We made it!

Right now spring kind of looks like this, but I’m sure it will get better soon.  It has to. Right?


I will leave you with a song to kick off your Monday and it just happens to be a perfect soundtrack for my day today.Because I’m happy, clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do”.   

Thanks again for your support and I look forward to your feedback!

    Congratulations on launch day! I’ve always thoroughly enjoying reading your articles. Your honesty mixed with your humour is always entertaining! I’m looking forward to seeing what’s to come and in the spirit of Happy Day, I’m doing a ‘happy dance down under’ for you now.
