MyShinyMonkey.com is a blog by and for tweens (kids 8-14). It covers news, reviews, LOLs, travel, pop culture and anything that taps into my family's snarky, somewhat dark humor and lifestyle. I’m the mom of a 13-year old boy and 11-year old girl, and together we explore pop culture, social media and YouTube, talk about animation and art and anti-bullying, participate in creative urban improv stunts and love being goofy together. We review whatever is shiny and new: food and beverages, toys and gadgets, and experiences... overall, I'm more interested in raising my kids to be smart, responsible, caring and creative. I hope our blog appeals to families like ours: wired and curious and sometimes silly.
Note: I do NOT have an obsession with monkeys. I do like to be playful, eat bananas for breakfast, and am curious about shiny new things.
