About Me

Hi, I'm Lainey. Thanks for visiting! In This Mom's Shoes is a blog about my journey from the work all hours of day and night high stress corporate world and corresponding health challenges to the life of a homeschooling mom of two little girls. It is the story of the challenges we faced, the joys we shared, and the conclusions we reached to make some major lifestyle changes along the way. By nature I'm a researcher, I delve into each new topic with the vigor of a masters-thesis writer, and share the impact made on our lives.

The term health nut has on occasion been used to describe me.  I am very aware of the impact of what we put in out bodies and am constantly trying new ways to teach my children to love vegetables.

I place a high importance on education, not necessarily school attained education, but the quest for knowledge and a love of learning. I am the mom who taught her 2 year old to read, because children love to learn, and I see it as my job as a parent to actively guide them on this path and provide them with the resources and opportunities to excel.

In this blog I share my favorite approved-by-a-picky kid recipes, products, books, teaching young children activities, and links to sites that inspire me.
