Whose bright idea was it to have a fundraiser in the last weeks of school? And how will I re-create Florence Nightingale's outfit for my 9yo? HELP!

1 baby is born prematurely every minute and 72 children die each day before their first birthday. IN THE USA.

How can you help? By shopping for Mother's Day. Yes, I'm serious. Learn how on the blog...

If you work for a nonprofit, school, church, or state/local gov't organization, this is for you.

Grants for community urban gardens and farmer's markets are now available from the Aetna Foundation. $1 million in grants being awarded!

I was happy to write about this program because I am a big gardener, and I've seen first-hand how kids get interested in eating fresh veggies when they grow those veggies themselves.

HonestMom.com : Support, advice, fun, and laughs for real moms.
Introduction
Hi there. I'm JD Bailey, the woman behind Honest Mom

Honest Mom is a blog and community for real moms. On the blog you'll find good stuff on raising kids, managing depression, mental health, parenting humor, recipes, giveaways, and more. The community extends to Facebook too, including private groups for mental health, parenting, and blogging support.

A big part of what I do is advocate for moms who deal with depression. My ultimate goal is to help lift the stigma of depression through my writing, while helping other moms to feel less alone in their battles with the chronic illness. I was interviewed by Katie Couric on her show, featured in Parenting Magazine, and quoted in a Vogue magazine article about depression.
