Our very first Mom on the Move is Cat Clayton (a.k.a WAHMCat). Cat is an educational consultant for Usborne Books & More. They have books for your child at every stage from newborn to teens. Explaining where Cat fits into the mix is best done by her
I change the world one book at a time. I promote literacy and give children a reason to want to learn to read. For instance, my favorite program is called Reach for the Stars. Each child (in a school, daycare, organization, etc) commits to read 30 minutes a day for 2 weeks. They take pledges from family and friends for their commitment. Then I return 100% of those pledges into books for the kids to keep forever and whatever organization we went through also gets free books! So the children are rewarded with knowledge, hugs & high-fives instead of plastic airplanes that are broken same day and bouncy balls that find homes with the dust bunnies under the sofa. Usborne offers a ton of programs- that is just my fave! 🙂
I am not sure where and/or how she finds the time because not only is she an Educational Consultant with Usborne Books & More, she’s also a Mom, “Thrifty Diva”, a Unit Leader with AVON and a student (when she can fit school in of course)! If and when she gets to unwind she says that
A warm cup of Earl Grey from my Keurig, a good book on the porch with a light breeze, good conversation with my friends & giggles from my babies are the best!
Take a moment to visit her blog where she talks about being a WAHM (Work At Home Mom) and juggling a career, three kiddos (four if you count her furbaby & 5 if you count the Mister!) and….well – life. It is in the beginning stages so head over and give her some support!
She says that even though her life may sometimes look like a circus act, she is definitely a lucky, lucky girl!!
