Welcome to The Mommy-Files!  My name is Shannon and I am a work-at-home mom who loves to share our family experiences through words and pictures on The Mommy-Files and in social media.

Our family

Over the past three years, our family has grown to include my husband (owner of the blog, Daddledo, as well as contributor to The Mommy-Files), myself, our four boys and two girls – one big happy family! In fact, it’s quite often that we’re referenced as the Brady Bunch! Yes indeed!

Together, we have a “Bunch of Kids” and I love it!!!!  I love having a big family and sharing about our experiences on my blog!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a review and giveaway work?

For a review, I do require a product sample, which is not to be returned, so that I can experience the product for myself and write an honest review. I do my best to point out all of the positive parts of the product and the company. I also include a direct link to the company’s main website and product’s site if applicable. The giveaways run for 2 weeks and I prefer to have the company ship the prize directly to the winner.

Will you email me when your review is posted?

Once the review is posted, I will email you the link to the review. I’ll do my best to keep you updated (reviews posted, winner’s information).

Do you charge to advertise on your site?

If you would like to advertise on my site, please email me for rates and placement on The Mommy-Files.  Payment is accepted through Paypal.
