A Mom’s Take is a mom blog based in Phoenix, Arizona that started on April 1st, 2010 with just one mom trying to connect with others and be a resource for other moms. The owner, Janel, is a mom who knows what it is like to be raising little ones in the modern day.
On this site you will find a variety of topics from recipes, travel, crafts, gift ideas, blogging tips, and other content to inspire and teach. Since A Mom’s Take began it has grown to include a variety of writers and contributors. You’ll notice a variety of voices but one thing remains the same – we are all real women sharing our stories, experiences, and opinions.
The Mom Voices Behind A Mom’s Take
Janel is a Raleigh mom blogger. She loves to play strategic board games, visit theme parks, read, design in Photoshop, and travel! She met her husband on a Caribbean cruise and they wed just 15 months later. They have five boys, including a 2 year old who is watching over their family from heaven. The other boys were born in ’06, ’08, ’10, and 2014. Janel loves working at home with the flexibility to socialize online, work with brands, and create something that is uniquely her own while still being at home with her children.
Meagan adores being a mother to a Ninja Turtle obsessed 4-year-old son and a very sweet (but mostly sassy) one-year-old daughter. Before working from home, she enjoyed her time as a Behavioral Health Nurse. When she gets a moment to herself, nothing makes Meagan happier than eating cookie dough ice-cream, going shopping (kidless), catching up on her favorite Netflix shows, or soaking in a nice warm bubble bath. Meagan and her family recently relocated to Idaho where we love living the simple life.
Aimee is a married and the mother of the three cutest kiddos around, one boy and two girls. The first two are just 19 months apart. She has a 5-year old, 4-year old, and 1-year old. Before becoming a stay at home mom Aimee was a second grade teacher, and loved every minute of it. Now she spends most of her day on the floor building trains, tucking in baby dolls, reading stories, and laughing with her kids. She loves to spend time with her family, travel, read, watch movies, be outdoors, and eat! They recently took on a big adventure and moved to Alaska where her husband is completing a pediatric dentistry residency.
Jonna is a mom to four kids, two girls, two boys (ranging from toddler to teen), and a part-time preschool teacher. She loves all the crazy chaos life has to offer with a big family, but also tries to make sure to take some time out for my own hobbies: reading, crafting, baking, and dating her husband. Jonna is always up for a new adventure and willing to try anything at least once. She is a die-hard organizer at heart with a life that will not fit into my nice little box, so she is always on the hunt for tips, tricks and strategies to help smooth out the bumps on our crazy ride!
Aubrey is the mom of three fun-loving kids ages 8, 11 and 13. Aubrey still lives in the valley and is a Phoenix Mom blogger for our team. She’s learning to navigate the mom stage beyond babies and into tweens and teens. Aubrey is a loyal friend, adventure-seeking, hard-working woman who isn’t afraid to put herself out there and try something new. She is in school seeking a bachelor’s degree in accounting. Their family lives in the Phoenix valley.
A Mom’s Take has had a handful of additional contributors over the past years that you may see posts from as well. As life has progress and changed, our past writers moved on to other opportunities or to spend more time home with their children. We have appreciated all those who have shared their voice and talents in contributing to A Mom’s Take.
