Katy a.k.a Katy Morgan
Katy Morgan started her blog http://KatyInACorner.com as a way to compile all the information her children will inevitably need when they pursue therapy as adults. Her blog is also a place where other not-so-perfect mothers can laugh with and relate to her challenges as a new mom. Katy is proud to be married to her high school sweetheart who is an Air Force pilot. Together they have two children, a toddler boy and a baby girl. Their life as a military family is an exciting one. In seven years of marriage, they have moved eight times. Katy is incredibly adept at ripping through packing tape with her teeth. Other notable skills and hobbies include public speaking, acting, and writing. But she is most proud of the packing tape thing.

Have you ever experienced the post-Thanksgiving blues? Doctors will tell you that this is what happens when Turkey Day is done and "normal" life resumes. I'm no doctor, but I totally disagree. I believe the post-Thanksgiving blues start long before the turkey and stuffing have given way to the need for elastic pants.
Moms, have you ever logged onto Facebook and thought to yourself, "WHERE are all the "mom" features? Where is button that magically forces my kid to friend me (because I'm the mother, that's why!)? Where is the photo editor that will automatically detect and remove cellulite?
As a professional blogger and an amateur stay-at-home mom, I seem to develop a new ailment almost daily: swollen ankles from sitting all day, carpal tunnel from typing all day, busted eardrums from listening to Dora the Explorer all day. Seriously, Dora needs to explore her "inside voice."
Welcome to another Katy in a Corner "how to" video! Last time, I shared some advice for How to be the Perfect Mother. This week, I decided to use hidden cameras to capture a perfect wife in action. That perfect wife? Me.
Date night has changed quite a bit since we had kids. Before our son was born, my husband, Brian, and I went to concerts, ate expensive meals and stayed out until at least 11 p.m. We didn't have a set day or time for our dates, we just went when and where the mood led us. I know, we party hard. Like the Puritans.
Hello readers of ModernMom! I'm the new mom blogger on the block, and it is a huge privilege for me to add my name to the list of truly accomplished women who write for this site. But first, I have a confession: I'm not really an expert. I just play one on TV -- or on my webcam. When I began my motherhood journey in April of 2010, I became so overwhelmed with the advice, the books, the experts, the advocates, and the mom bullies who insist that there is a "perfect" way to parent.
