September 2011 Newsletter
When I first started OurMilkMoney.com, the big driving question on my mind was- What can a million parents accomplish by working together? I knew that it wouldn't be difficult to unify the moms and dads across the country because of the one thing that we so predominantly have in common: our love for our children. We are driven by the parenting instincts brewing inside of us- to care for, nurture and provide for those we love most in this world. For many of us, parenthood has redefined us and our priorities.
So what can 1 million parents accomplish together? Lets start by applying the golden rule: Treat others as you would like to be treated. In other words, use your power as a consumer to make your purchases from parents who are working hard like you to earn "milk money" for their families. Choose to spend your hard earned dollars in a way that supports what you believe in most.
I am thrilled to be bringing you more of what you love this month: Great blogs from Chris Loprete's The Daddy's Den and Julianne Wish's A Wishful Thought, 3 new member spotlights, lots of great new members to meet, as well as direct access to those radio podcasts you might have missed. In addition, we have several opportunities for you to participate in free parenting seminars and home based business programs. Enjoy your read.
It's going to be a terrific fall!

At Our Milk Money, we don't discriminate. Moms have great stories to share, but so do the Dads. It is definitely a sign of the times when Dads from all over the world begin to step up as primary care-takers and embrace their roles as stay-at-home parents.

The Last Kid
It’s a moment we all have to go through. A moment that is profoundly sad. The moment that you realize you’ve had your last kid. My oldest started kindergarten this week. My youngest started pre-school. My babies are growing up. I cleaned out the garage last week and found a storage bin filled with bibs, tiny shoes and onesies. They had all been worn by my first born and been passed down to his baby brother three years later. I got a lump in my throat knowing as I put them away, they would not be worn by another child of mine. My wife and I have two beautiful children. We will not be having another…and I am soooo, so cool with that.
I’m done. I’m ready to move on. Don’t get me wrong. I really loved ...Continue reading →

Meet Stephanie Nugent, a 33 year old mother to two beautiful munchkins! Her daughter is 4.5 years old (and yes, that .5 is VERY important to her LOL) and her son is 18 months old. She spent 10 years as a Paralegal and was laid off four days before her maternity leave for her daughter ran out…about 45 seconds later the economy collapsed and there wasn’t a job to be found anywhere.
