Parenting isn’t easy. In fact, it’s is a full time job in itself! The hours are long, the pay is dismal, and the boss is often demanding, crabby, and in need of a serious nap. But for many parents, it’s not the only job they have to juggle. Remember that dismal pay part? Between work and family, life get’s pretty hectic at times, and although it isn’t always easy to find a balance between work and family life, it is possible. Want to find out how?
We’re teaming up with our friend Rebekah, from @WeHeartMom, to learn just how she’s managed to juggle being a mother, chemist, and founder & CEO of her own business. Surely a woman with this much going on knows a thing or two about mastering the juggling act of life.
Aside from learning tips on how to find balance, you could also leave the #ChampsChat party with some pretty awesome goodies. We’ll be giving away 4 prize packages throughout the party. Each prize pack will include one case of Champions Tubes and a specially selected goody from Rebekah’s line of handmade bath products from her store, School of Wash. You won’t want to miss this great event, so be sure to come chat with us this Wednesday, May 22nd at 8 PM EST.
Rebekah is one of those moms who just seems to be able to do it all. Aside from being the founder and CEO of School of Wash, Rebekah is also a, full-time mother, working wife, executive, chemist, and blogger.

Have you ever come across a blog that has such drool-worthy pics you instantly fall in love? That’s how we feel about Kristen and her blog, Dine & Dish. We were initially drawn in by the Pinter-esque like photos (yes, we may have totally made that word up), and stayed glued to the screen as we fell in love with the heartfelt and honest stories Kristen shares along with her recipe posts. As a mother of 4, you may find it hard to believe that she can find the time to not only prepare such delicious looking meals, but also take such stunning photographs, AND is totally down to earth to boot. Add freelance writing to the mix and you’ve got yourself one busy mama! Keep ‘em coming, Kristin. We’ve always got an extra 3 hours to kill just perusing your pics.
We’re not really sure how Kristin decided on the name “STUFT Mama” for her blog, but we’re guessing it has something to do the with the fact that she has the ability to stuff so many accomplishments into one day. Seriously, she’s one of those moms who leaves you wondering, “how does she do it all?”. Whether it’s running after her 2 twin boys, experimenting with her latest healthy roasted kitchen creation, teaching fitness classes, or running marathons, this mama somehow finds time for all of it… not without the occasional stop to Starbucks, of course. You need need a boat load of cafine to maintain this lifestyle too! Her twin boys definitely help to keep her on her toes, but Kristin enjoys every minute of building healthy habits into her family routine, and we enjoying every minute of reading about it.
How many times as a child did your mother tell you to wait in the van? Considering that’s the title of her blog, we’re guessing Kristine has heard and/or spoken that phrase a time or two in her life. If the title of her blog doesn’t have you cracking up, certainly her posts will. This mama has had her fair share of entertaining adventures. She’s survived scorpions, longhorn beetles, and the Kindergarten PTA. If those adventures don’t peak your interest, how about we throw in the fact that Kristine has a connection to Paul Ryan & Ryan Gosling… well, sorta. All that while raising two incredibly adorable boys. All in a day’s work!
You can’t help but smile when you read the name of Chelsea’s blog, “Sunny with a Chance of Sprinkles.” Not to be confused with the classic children’s book, “Sunny with a Chance of Meatballs.” Because seriously, sprinkles are wayyyy cooler than meatballs. Her blog name won’t be the only thing making you smile. Just wait until you feast your eyes on the adorable photos of her daughter, Alea. Chelsea has a natural talent for beautifully capturing everyday moments, special occasions, and everything in between. She may be a busy mama, but she knows that no matter how hectic your schedule get, there’s always time for a little fun!
One Funny Motha is, well to put it simply, hilarious. You thought we were gonna say ‘funny’, didn’t ya? Well she’s that and every other adjective you could possibly use to describe someone as having an incredible sense of humor. Which, if you’re familiar with parenting in any way, shape, or form, then you’re well aware this is an essential trait for making it out alive. Aside from her sense of humor, OFM also brings to the table some incredible writing skills, and the ability to make expanding your vocabulary an enjoyable & laughable process. Did we mention you can also find adorable pictures of her dressed up kitties on her blog? How can you not love that?
Sometimes life gets crazy, busy, hectic, and well, interesting to say the least. Add five kids to the mix and it instantly gets about 100 times more interesting. That’s why there’s always something exciting happening over on Life on Peanut Layne. As a mother of 5, Kristen knowns that parenting isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, but hey, that’s okay. She’s learned to embrace life’s ups and downs and celebrate the little things… even if it’s as little as the hubby bringin’ home the name brand paper towels. A little appreciation goes a long way!
You could say that Ashley’s life is full of all sorts of shenanigans. Which makes her blog title “The Stauffer Shenanigans” the perfect fit! This mama is prepared for it all though, equipping herself with a great sense of humor and the uncanny ability to roll with the punches… or puppies… or whatever life throws her way. It will all make sense in a minute, we promise. Oh and did we forget to mention that she plans one heck of a Disney trip? Mickey ain’t got nothing on this one.
