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.

The Killers - T MobileI am your resident Mommyfriend (or Lori in real life).

I have been married to Big Daddy P for a lifetime 17 years and have two great boys ages 8 (“BooBoo”) and 13 (“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 queen of the universe.

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 always, always learn from myself.

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 writing at Disney’s Babble, YourTango, Yahoo! Shine, BestMomsTV, and Moms and Baby where I share too much and offer a variety of relationship and parenting how-tos (because kids and partners don’t come with instructions).

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