    Great site Jill. My sister-inlaw has twin boys 10 months and I showed her your site. I play golf with your Dad 3 or 4 times a week. You are a lucky girl to have such a great role model.

    I am wondering if your magazine /website is looking for articles to publish.
    I am happy to offer some articles of financial nature (related to families/kids) to your magazine, at no cost.

    Please let me know if I can submit any for your magazine’s review. Thank you.

    I am a mom of a 2 yrs old toddler and currently expecting my second baby in November this year !!
