And of course, this event would not be possible without our gracious hosts at The Motherhood Center!  If you’re unfamiliar with all that their center holds, then we strongly encourage you to connect with them as you enter into motherhood.  They offer a variety of services from yoga to massage, from lactation consultants to babysitting services, from night nannies to potty training, and so much more.  We cannot wait for you to see their beautiful space and get to know their friendly and knowledgeable staff too!

Kelly D
Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
