Say It Forward – Week 44: Today’s loyal commentor award goes to Christine of From Dates to Diapers.

First of all, I have to say that each week as I scour the sites of all our frequent commentors, I’m constantly amazed and humored by the blog titles and content that you all put out. You are a talented, funny group of people and Christine is no exception!

From Dates to Diapers is a great site that I’m so excited to have found. Christine is a homeschooling mother to six young children and her site is chock full of wisdom, humor, photography and fun. Not only does Christine keep her house rockin’ and rollin’ on a daily basis, but she does it while managing an online business empire. In fact, she was recently named one of Neilson’s Top 50 Power Moms.

As a mom of six, Christine is never without a story to tell. Like the day the a representative from CPS came knocking on her door due to the complaints of a disgruntled neighbor, the stares she gets when she’s out in public with her large brood, or the hilarity of finding her children asleep in odd places.

Christine describes herself this way: Christine is married to her best friend, Ray, and together they have six very active children, all ages 9 and under. She’s a busy mama, spending most of her days homeschooling her crew in the Sacramento area. She is the proud owner and author of the Mommy Blog, From Dates to Diapers, where she shares about life with little ones, offers advice and encouragement, and writes her thoughts and opinions on some of the greatest products on the market – those that make family life FUN.

In addition to being a mom, wife, laundry-hater, dish-washer, and boogie-wiper, Christine loves to connect with other moms in various social media spaces. She also enjoys building relationships with companies and brands on a daily basis. Christine was recently tapped as one of Nielsen’s Top 50 Power Moms, is a Lifetime Mom, one of Wal-Mart’s “ElevenMoms” and a spokesmom/host for Johnson’s Baby.

    Yay to Christine! :)

    I laughed when you said large brood! People actually stare at a brood of 6? Have you heard of the Duggars? Can’t imagine the stares they must get as they have 18 (or is it 19 now).
    My hats off to those with large families. I love to glean wisdom from the parents of large families.
