#UBP11 :: Better Late Than Never!

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on April 4, 2011

It’s time to party!

Okay, I know… I’m way late to this party. But, I’m ready to have some fun!

For those of you who don’t know me, I am Christine - aka YoungMommywife to my best friend and mom to seven beautiful (and very loud) children.

I began blogging when I was pregnant with Benjamin, my fifth child, almost six years ago. After blogging for quite some time I started this little blog, simply because I wanted a place to talk about my favorite products, as well as all of the fabulously generous mommy bloggers and their fun giveaways. Over the last four years it has become so much more, as I began writing more about my family life here, instead of trying to keep it all separate.

On this, my mom blog, you will find stories about life with little ones, as well as the joys (and challenges) that I face as helpmeet, mommy, teacher, and all-around go-to girl. I host giveaways and hold contests, talk about other fantastic mommies, post pictures and stories about my kiddos, and offer my two-cents on all sorts of things - from dates to diapers!

Please feel free to stay awhile, browse around, and leave me a comment to let me know that you were here… I love company and will gladly welcome a new friend! In fact, I’d love to feature some of you on the From Dates to Diapers Facebook page, so be sure you tell me all about yourself.

Well, I’m off to do some party hopping and meet some of YOU. Feel free to make yourself at home, join us on some of our adventures, enter my latest giveaways, or read the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions.

I hope you bookmark me, subscribe to my feed, or just come back and visit me again soon. I always have exciting stuff going on. From games and prizes to quizzes and special features.

Here are some other places you can find me ::

I love commonly asked questions answers. So I’m going to read that.

I had clicked right on your link to twitter, but then my little one wanted to nurse and then my computer died so I took it upstairs to plug in and my little one started being cute so I started playing with her and then she was so cute that I asked my older daughter to get the video camera and then I recorded her being cute…and well YOU know how it is, you have seven. Beat me by one.

Party on!!!

Over from UBP2011– You have an awesome blog and will be following you on FB-:) Only had 4 and can’t imagine almost double the work load–but I guess that gets you double the hugs, too!

I think the only question I really need to ask you is When do we finally get to meet? Welcome to the party!
