As part of [tag]Mommyfest 2008[/tag], I’m posting a little intro about me for all the new people ( wave) …so we can get to know each other better. Don’t be shy now and leave a comment .
This is Melitsa Avila from Colorado. I’m a miltary wife and mother of two boys and one little person on the way. I work from home raising two smiley active boys. Originally from the UK, we’ve also lived in Italy for 5 years before stopping here in the US; hence the British English that pops up.
[tag]Play-activities[/tag] started whilst I was in a small Italian village with one then two small children. To find out more about why I started this look here. Play-activities officially launched a year ago this month. Happy Birthday to Play-activities!
Play-activities is a weekly email of educational and fun play-activities for your under 5 child. The idea is to use everyday items from around the home and try a variety of activities not just crafts to have fun with your child. You can sign up or see a sample in the top right hand corner.
When I’m not busy playing around. 🙂 I can be found listening to podcasts. I produce a roundup of [tag]parenting podcasts[/tag] biweekly- or fortnightly as we say in the UK. There are so many podcasts out there that are unheard of but great. I hope you can dip in and find something you like, spread the word and please, please recommend to me.
I love reading and especially love multicultural children’s books and [tag]Barefoot books[/tag] is a perfect fit for the kids and I. If you’re looking for good children’s stories and beautiful illustrations look no further.
I’m excited to be a part of Mommyfest 2008 and the chance to meet so many talented mommy bloggers.
