Kindred is a blog devoted to caring for young families.  As an experienced childcare provider and mom, I have learned a great deal over the past few years.  I want to share my unique perspective, tips, and ideas as well as hear what works for you and your family.

Here’s a little more about me:

My name is Michelle, and I am a freelance writer and mom.  Prior to motherhood, I earned a masters degree in Communication Studies and worked as a marketing  and childcare professional.  Now, I am a SAHM who blogs, crochets, cooks, and sings Itsy Bitsy Spider on repeat.

I hope you enjoy my blog!  Connect more with Kindred 2016 on Twitter and Facebook.
