Hello and Welcome Fellow Mommy Friends!

Look, I know these websites come a dime a dozen (searching for a URL was not easy) and I want you to know how much I appreciate you visiting and reading my bloggings.

I am your resident Mommyfriend (or Lori in real life).

I have been married to Big Daddy P for a lifetime 22 years and have two great boys ages 13 (“BooBoo”) and 18 (“Boy Wonder”).  I gave up my full-time job outside the home as a secret agent (not really, but close enough) to pursue my dream as a freelance writer and social media doer.

I have aspired to do three things with this website:

  • Write, because I love to
  • Be funny, because I wish I was
  • Have you, my fellow Mommy Friends leave this site knowing that you are wonderful, as you are.

I have consumed ridiculous amounts of parenting blogs, books, websites and magazines and contrary to what I have read I have really only learned one thing:

I am good enough, I will make mistakes, and that’s OK. 

Do I want to be a better mom? You bet. But I know that I strive to be the best mom I can be everyday and while sometimes I surprise myself, other times I’m not so lucky. No matter what though, I’m always, always learning.

I hope that you take away a smile, a lesson, or comfort in knowing I am just like you — because I am.

If you can’t get enough of my face or my stories, you can find me chatting at The Untitled GenX Podcast or writing at Disney’s Babble, Mom2.com, YourTango, Fandango, Yahoo!, and all around the internets!

Want to chat? Me too! I welcome your comments and emails at yourmommyfriend@gmail.com!
