Inspired by an idea over at See Jamie Blog, Tricia suggested that we have our own panel of mentors at our next moms’ support meeting. I was honored to be included on the panel with some other moms I respect and admire (including our own Tricia and Kim!)  The best thing was being nominated by moms I also respect and admire.  I don’t know how much I contributed with my pregnant brain, but I sure gleaned a lot of helpful tips!

To close out our curriculum review, I compiled a list of book, curriculum and website recommendations from those moms.  Hopefully you’ll find something useful among them, too.

Thanks for joining us these two weeks and contributing your own faves.  Here’s one more opportunity for you to do that.  Come on ~ you know you want to!!
