About Me

This blog belongs to a working mom with a third grader and preschooler (and 3 cats).

I do intentional family product reviews!

Momma Brings Home the Bacon

 I look forward to introducing healthy information and products to share with my fellow parents!

Momma’s Bacon Mission:  Empower Families to Make Good Choices.

Momma’s Bacon Promise:  Momma’s Bacon products are picked for review through my own research that support my mission. I do not get paid for reviews.  I do not participate in Click Link programs.  Review products can be purchased, sometimes through a discount or product review programs, or samples.  Products are used and tested from a parent’s perspective.  Opinions given are 100% my own.

My Momma Mantra:

“Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible.”

Spread Awareness About Developmental Coordination Disorder!

Do you know about a common motor condition that can be diagnosed early in childhood called Developmental Coordination Disorder or DCD

If you’d like to know more on DCD diagnosis and effective treatment from our family’s personal experience, check out my guest post on Red Tricycle HERE. 

Please share with parents of young children to help bring awareness to DCD

  1. Thanks for following my blog – I just toured around your blog and really appreciate your reviews – after all what better person to turn to for advice on a product than a mom! Looking forward to more blogs..

    • Thank you so much for your lovely comment and having a blog focused on a family’s simple pleasures philosophy. I love your Seuss blog quote, which I am going to post here:

      “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss

      • I’m so glad you were able to find something good out of my blog – I love quotes and like many, but that is my all time favourite – I have the quote framed and hanging on my children’s door – I always remind them – be who you are!

    • Thanks so much! I really appreciate the nomination for the Sunshine Award. Fantastic! I have been keeping you with your blog, too. I love hearing all the great stuff about Pinterest. I wish I was that handy!

  2. Hey, thanks for dropping by my blog and following! It’s always great to see new readers. Of course, I immediately had to cyberstalk to see what you’re up to. 🙂 Can’t wait to start digging through more of your blog. I’ve got a toddler myself, so it will be nice to check out the reviews. Keep writing!

    • Lovely! Thanks for the drop by and do hope you return. We have the similar problem of book hoarding and seeking out new things to read! I imagine our toddlers will turn into bookworms through osmosis.

  3. Thanks you for reviewing BookBox stories.

    We really appreciate your efforts in reviewing products that facilitate the best learning and development environment for kids. It’s a great help for parents too!

    When it comes to kids’ products, an opinion from a mom is invaluable. Hence, we would greatly appreciate it if you can review more of our kids’ products (iPhone app, android app, books, DVD etc) when we bring them out in the future. Please let us know. And, keep up your good work!

    • Thank you so much for your reply, Ajit. If new BookBox products fit in with my mission to help facilitate and empower children, then I am definitely interested to review upcoming BookBox products. The scope that BookBox reaches as a literacy tool, esp in countries like India, is amazing and I would love to be part of the effort.

      Keep in touch and keep up the good work on your end!

  4. Thanks for the follow! I am starting a series on my blog for book reviews on books that come through the house for my twins (currently toddlers) and was looking at your site for examples of how other people write reviews. Love what I see here!

  5. I found your blog on Top Mommy Blogs, and I love it (even though I’m a dad 🙂 It’s full of practical advice and really helpful ideas!

    I recently wrote a parenting book myself and I’d love your expert thoughts on it. The eBook is free on Amazon from 11/24 to 11/28 by searching “How to Raise Great Kids – 101 Fun & Easy Ideas” or I’d be happy to send you a free paperback copy if you prefer that to eBook as well.

    ​I admire your work so much, and I hope you’ll appreciate mine someday soon, too. Thanks and keep up all your outstanding work!

    Happy Turkey Day!!!

  6. Thanks for the review you wrote for The Empowered Teacher; your thoughts, as an active and involved mom, mean a lot! Parents like you, and teachers, are exactly who I want to reach!

    Thanks for all you do!!

    And you might want to check out this video! It was also so important to me that EVERY child know they are not alone. I used to give these to students, teacher, AND parents! They totally changed the culture of the school.

    Let me know what you think! Thanks again!
