As part of The Mommies Network, CharlotteMommies is a free community for moms in Mecklenburg County, NC. We realize that all moms need local support -- and who can't use another friend? CharlotteMommies offers a simple way to connect with local moms for friendship, support and fun. Each month, we offer many face-to-face events for our members, their children and their families. Our members also have access to our private discussion forums to share information on everything from where to get the best haircut to tips on transitioning to a "big kid" bed.
We look forward to receiving your creative entries! You gotta love the prizes too. What mom couldn't use more coffee mugs and other merchandise, especially when she has a hand in designing them?! Please enter by May 20th. You can find inspiration from the example located in the blog.

It is my pleasure to introduce a new featured blogger on The Mommies Network.

She has volunteered to write a bi-weekly column on our network blogs and we're excited to have her on our Editorial Team!
