I found CafeMom in July of 2010. I loved it so much when I was asked to be a mod, I immediately said yes.
I was a mod for about a year, when we launched our sister site, mamaslatinas.com. I went to work for them and then eventually transferred to CafeMom.

I have been on cafemom for 5 almost 6 years now. :) A friend told me about the site but she is no longer on anymore. And I wanted some advice from other moms since I was a first time mom and everything. The ladies that I have made friends with is what keeps me coming back. :)

I found CafeMom back in September of 2007, I was in a another Mom group and it was starting to fizzle out, some of my Mom friends from there were talking about CafeMom and so I checked it out, loved it and as they say the rest is history.

Isn't it amazing how you first joined when you had a new baby and now that baby is in school! Imagine all the live changes including more children since then.

A lot longer than my profile says. I lost access to an old email and had to remake a profile.  I think my youngest was like 2 when I first joined.  She will be 8 on July 8th......so 6 years or so. She may have been younger, I really don't remember, lol.

We are so glad to be part of your history. Have you had any more children since  joining?

I joined 7 years ago. I was on babycenter as we were adopting our dd and saw an ad for it. I have been here since. Now, I have an almost 9 year old and an almost 6 year old.

Oh it is so crazy. I have a new born and now I have an almost 6 years old and no other babies in the mix. But this site has helped me out when I have needed it the most. :) And it still helps me out. :)

I had 3 kids in school when I first joined. Now my oldest is finishing his last year of college and his lived on his own for a couple of years, my middle one is in the Navy and out to sea and my youngest will be going into the 4th grade. Time flies!

We all have CafeMom kids! I love it.

I joined in August 2007. An annoying pop up on MySpace brought me here, and I've been hooked ever since.
