Mommy Nearest & I have big news!

This year has gotten off to a pretty incredible start. I’ve just returned from an awesome trip (more on that later) and now I have very exciting news to share with you:

Mommy Nearest has chosen me as an “Expert Mom”!

Expert Mom Badge

If you don’t already know, Mommy Nearest is a recently-launched mobile app that allows parents to access all kinds of child-related resources throughout Chicago and beyond. With Mommy Nearest, you’ll be able to find things like the closest kid-friendly restaurants that have high chairs; the nearest parks and playgrounds, broken down by age; and even the best places to change a diaper. In many situations, the app can be a true lifesaver – for visitors to Chicago and even locals. You can download Mommy Nearest for free here.

The fine folks at Mommy Nearest think I’m an expert when it comes to family-friendly resources in Chicago so they have asked me to join the team. As a Mommy Nearest Expert Mom, I will be chronicling my experiences using the app while trying out new places and visiting some old favorites. Please follow along on my adventures by continuing to read my blog and by checking out the Mommy Nearest magazine, which is part of the app.

I will have a lot more to share about my experiences in the coming weeks, so please keep checking back. In the meantime, definitely check out the Mommy Nearest app! It is available for iPhones in the App Store and for Android devices via Google Play.
