We started Cool Mom Picks in to help make life cooler, easier, more organized, more meaningful, and more fun for parents of all kinds. Yeah, we rethought that. We had no idea our site would grow to become a major lifestyle network, that we'd end up sharing our finds with the TODAY Show and Martha Stewart , that we'd be able to make a real difference for so many small businesses and women-run companies, or that we'd end up with an incredible community of the coolest readers on the planet.
If we do say so ourselves. But we did.
And we still love what we do every single day. We're so glad you're here. Our Podcast. New for Trending Right Now.
