Sharing Parenthood Advice Coast to Coast

About me! How did I get here? October 5, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — coastalcutie @ 3:00 pm

I’m Andrea a mom to a 2 1/2 year old daughter named Shayna (her name is hebrew for “beautiful”) and wife to Jeff (who will share his own experiences from time to time!). We live in California near the coast (hence the name!) There’s lots of chaos and craziness in our life, but so much fun as well!

I started this blog in October 2008 to encourage, inspire, and support moms and anyone else who happens to stumble upon my site!

A little about me, Well…I run a mother’s group that has a membership count of 135 moms! (more about that later) I am currently working on my own baby product line to be released this year (cross fingers) so my time is filled with moms, children and business (is there anything better?) I am a 42 year old mom, my daughter was my 40th birthday gift, try to top that gift! she is amazing in every way and a tough cookie! she was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis (try to pronounce that one!) at 3 months old. We were told that her soft spot prematurely closed or did not open at all and that if we did not take care of it she could end up with some disabilities, so at 5 months she had the surgery to open up the soft spot and have her forehead and eyebrow area restructured. She pulled through with flying colors and is now the smartest, energetic kid I know!

Shayna and Duffy

Shayna and Duffy

 This is Shayna and her best friend, our dog Duffy. He was named for a boat I wanted “A Duffy Electric Boat”, but instead I got the dog, who I love very much.  

So how did I get here and by here I mean blogging, I thought it was time to join all of you ! So join me on my journey from my coast to yours! Happy Blogging!

    It’s obvious that you have energy, purpose, creativity and great goals. Shayna will benefit now, and also has great role models to inspire her through all of her adult life too. Keep on keeping on!

    I’m so happy to be part of this amazing club even though we are far away now. But in many ways, I still feel connected to you everyday and all the amazing moms I’ve met along. Surely you’re an inspiration to me and I wish you all the best of luck in all your projects. Always your friend. ML.
