Babble's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011
Elizabeth Thielke of Busy Mom
Perhaps one of the most relatable voices out there, Busy Mom believes in “better parenting through coffee,” and getting and giving little life lessons wherever she goes. With three kids and an almost-two-decade-long marriage, she comes from solid, familiar ground, and her confessions are less dramatic than most (recent updates about an inability to manage time and a brush with her now-dead mother read sweetly). While some might be turned off by how utterly recognizable her school-and-soccer-practice life is, others will be inspired by how much she derives from the everyday, and feel they’ve found a companion in this likeable, reassuring voice.
