Babble's Top 100 Mom Blogs of 2011
Meagan Francis of The Happiest Mom
Author, mom of five, and Babble Voices blogger Meagan Francis wants other moms to know that despite the dark, cynical tone of much of today’s “momoir” genre of writing, modern parenthood isn’t all drudgery and angst. With her sunny and smart blog, The Happiest Mom, Meagan reminds her readers that happiness is one part good luck and two parts choice. Every week she offers tips, tricks, and food for thought around the idea of making motherhood a more enjoyable experience. In 2010, the popularity of Meagan’s refreshing point of view led to publication of her bestselling book, The Happiest Mom, and her online readers are currently enjoying her blogging through the saga of her family’s restoration of their very first home – an undertaking that could test the happiness of even the most Zen mom. Through it all, though, Meagan keeps her perspective and her sense of gratitude intact, reminding the rest of us to do the same.
