Welcome!
Welcome! This site is all about moms of young children! My name is Leah Spina. I am author of the Amazon best-selling book Stop and Smell Your Children: Laugh and Enjoy the Little Years, speaker and fellow mom of young children. If you like to laugh, check out the Humor Page with my favorite mom jokes. Refresh yourself on the Inspire page to give you some encouragement. And check out my videos and blogs to help you laugh – instead of cry – at the diaper blizzard! Sign up for my FREE blog and check out my book, too. I’d love to connect with you on social media – join our mom community on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. And remember, we only have these little ones for a short season. So let’s LAUGH and ENJOY these years!
