Organizing a kid’s room seems easy…until you walk in the next day to find it completely disheveled! California Closets has a few awesome tips for moms who want their children’s rooms to stay clean and neat for as long as possible.

Today’s Mommywood is more like a Mimiwood! Once again, Mariah Carey has shared details on what it’s like to be the owner of a growing baby bump. Turns out Carey can cook as well as she sings!

Angela Kinsey: Reeses Peanut Butter Cups (in the fridge so they are cold!)
Lately everywhere you look there is a story about one of the moms from MTVs popular show Teen Mom.

The internet has made it so much easier to locate people who you want to reach out to for advice or just plain see what they’re up to. Social media has made that process even easier.
