The Ultimate Blog Party 2013 #UBP13

If you are stopping by from The Ultimate Blog Party 2013, welcome to Practical Mama blog. This is my first year at The Ultimate Blog Party 2013 and I am looking forward to meeting other moms and bloggers, and mommy bloggers and reading your blogs.

I am a working mother of a boy (almost 8 ) and a girl (5). I live in the windy city, Chicago. I claim to be practical because I, honestly, tend to be on the upper end of the procrastinator spectrum and believe i had ADD (see my list of interests below). So I have to devise (or learn) practical methods and ways to get things done. I share my tips and tricks here. I have been blogging since my son was 6 months old. So I wrote a lot about pregnancy, breastfeeding and sleep routines. Recently, I am focusing more on discipline, communicating to my children, sibling relations and education. Of course, the fun stuff with toys and games as well. I also have a lot of other interests such as:

I share products I like and make my life easier. I also share news and events around Chicago. And once in a while I just share my not-so-random thoughts or feelings about parenthood.
I am a person who LOVES TO SHARE what helps me as a mother, as a woman, as a wife, as a cook etc. so that others can benefit them as well. You can follow me on Facebook, Twitter , Pinterest and Instagram.
I am really glad that you visited my blog. If you leave a comment, I’d love to go check out your lovely blog, as well.

    Stopping by via the Ultimate Blog Party 13! It is so nice to meet you. I love to learn more about cooking so I will be coming back and checking your blog out.

    It’s my first time doing the ultimate blog party as well. I’m curious to learn more about someone who lives on the procrastination side. I have OCD so I’m always a mom on a mission, driving everyone crazy.

    I LOVE Chicago! It’s such a great city to visit! I’ve been twice for conferences and I’m trying to convince DH that we need to visit just because:)

    HI!!! I’m tracking you back from my blog. I’m with the UBP. Happy 1st party! It’s so fun to meet other bloggers. I’m glad to “meet” you! Especially with the GF stuff. My one discouragement so far with the GF lifestyle is being GF and a cheap shopper aren’t seeming to go very hand in hand. SO I can’t wait to prowl through your blog and get ideas!

    Hope you have a happy UBP and make LOTS of new friends!!!
