I Get By with a Little Help From My Friends

I’m officially calling a sick day.  This bug that has attacked my family has been keeping me up at night and I’m determined to get some sleep tonight (and not stay up to the wee hours blogging – as is my norm).  Instead of leaving you all in the lurch, I thought I’d roll out the first of a series of posts formally introducing the new MPMK contributors, yay!


First up is the lovely Kaley, who’s Jell-O Play Dough post has been a smashing success over on pinterest.  As you can tell from the images above, Kaley is a phenomenal photographer as well as one kick-ass momma.  I love her parenting point of view as well as her willingness to get in there and get messy.


Kaley’s currently embarking on the harrowing task of moving her family back to San Francisco from Honduras and, from what I can tell, she’s madly excited about it.  Here’s what else she’s been up to over in her neck of the woods:



Good stuff, right?  Head over a show Kaley some love and keep a look out for more contributor spotlights to come!
