Christine Cohen from Momslifesavers is our #FeaturedParentBlogger this week on Moms. That means we're having some fun with her and learning more about her blog.

Here's how our series works:
Christine is posting in our Moms forums every day. Each day has a different theme. We will post some snippets of what she says right here in Parent Buzz. But if you'd like to read more of what Christine is posting this week, just hop on into our Featured Parent Blogger forum.

Monday she posted an introduction.

A snippet from Christine's introduction on Monday:


My journey of blogging has been a natural one. I've had my blog, Mom's Lifesavers since 2007 after publishing my book. It has seen it's seasons, much like motherhood. Some seasons are bright, happy with chipper posts, and some are definitely dark, scary and my posts were seldom during those brief times. But I've never waivered from my passion for sharing my life online. It's been one of the best things I've ever done!

A few of the 20 facts Christine posted about herself on Tuesday:


I was asked to be on the Oprah show in my late 20's to be a panelist about one of the books Oprah suggested on one of her shows. I declined.


I grew up in Rockport, Mass. My parents owned a beautiful Inn and Cottages along the ocean. I was called the Innkeeper's Daughter by thousands of people and met the most amazing people. My work ethic was fostered there because I worked and helped from a very young age.

On Wednesday, Christine shared her favorite post of all time with us.

On Thursday, Christine took questions from readers. Find out the most unexpected thing that happened to her as a result of blogging, and more.

And, finally, on Friday Christine shares her favorite parenting blogs. Do you like the same ones?
