I am looking for a partner for my blog at OnePartSunshine.com. If you have always wanted to start a green parenting blog, this is a great opportunity to get involved in a site that is already up and running! I really need a partner who loves to write and who is very interested in green parenting. This person would become primarily responsible for the blog while most of my efforts would focus on maintaining the overall site. If you are interested in talking with me about this opportunity, email me at cindy (at) onepartsunshine (dot) com.
As a mother, I often forget about taking care of myself. So many other things seem so much more important – feeding my family healthy meals, planning out our homeschooling for the week, or scheduling the next playdate. When I get a break (usually between the hours of 10 pm and 2 am), I spend that time doing one of the above or blogging.
Years ago, I took a course on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. It was really helpful, but somewhere during the chaos of motherhood and life, I forgot most of what I learned about being mindful. Recently, I began reading about mindfulness again, and it has made me a better and happier mother. And I had a perfect Mother’s Day.
I hope that all of you love the site as much as I do. If you do love One Part Sunshine, you can vote for my blog in the Circle of Moms Top 25 Eco-Friendly Moms contest! Voting is open until May 16, 2013, and you can vote once per day.

You may have noticed that I haven’t been very active on One Part Sunshine over the past year. Between a horrible case of hyperemesis gravidarum throughout my entire pregnancy and a new baby (she is now 4 months old!), I decided to take a step back from my online obligations. This was extremely difficult for me because I put a lot of time, money and love into this website. I have dreams of it being an all-in-one resource for parents trying to create a non-toxic world for their children and a meeting place for like-minded people. I want to help parents (like me six years ago) who want to choose the safest and most natural products for their babies but don’t know where to start.
