About our blogger: pattyandthemoos
My name is Patty, otherwise known as Patty and “the moos”. I am a JustMommies administrator as well as a contributor and editor for the JustMommies blog. In case you wondered, the moos are my kids. The nickname started with my son Jeremy. My nephew started calling him Jeremoo because he was a very chubby little baby (you would never know that now). We also called him “moo moo”. Then Angie was “Angiemoo”, Brandon was “Mr. Moo” (I think the poor kid thought that was his real name for a long time), and Lyndsey was of course “Lyndsey Moo”.
I am 37years old and married to a great guy named Kelly. We have been married for fifteen years and live in Michigan. We are a homeschooling family. Daddy does a lot of the homeschooling but we love it.
You can find me here on JustMommies blog and hanging out on the JustMommies community.

We’re pretty lucky to live in a time where vehicles are smart – really smart.
For instance, how amazing is it that a car can call for help within seconds after a crash?

Additional technologies from OnStar include Stolen Vehicle Assistance and OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics emails, which track your vehicle’s health.

The furious winds of Hurricane Sandy have long since subsided, but the devastation in Staten Island is still a reality for many families. That’s why Honda, a longtime supporter of Little Leagues, decided to give $50,000 to Staten Island’s Little League so they can get back to scoring home runs. Check out the video above to see how Honda put together an amazing opening day event with games, activities and tons of fun for folks whom they’re helping to get back on their feet.
You can donate direct to the State Island Little League at www.rebuildSILL.com.
What do you do when your child asks the question that every parent fears? If you’re the owner of a 2014 Kia Sorento Limited*, you allow it to take you to imaginative new horizons.
Kia’s video answers the age-old question, “Where do babies come from?” by taking viewers to the distant planet of Babylandia – a planet full of baby boys, baby girls, baby dogs, baby pandas, baby everything.
The 2014 Kia Sorento* “has an answer for everything.”™ It features sleek redesigned styling, an available all-new, 290-hp 3.3L Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) V6 engine, and the available new UVO eServices** Infotainment system with voice-command navigation system to help a nervous dad answer one tricky question.
Check out Kia’s YouTube channel for more, and join the conversation on Twitter: #SpaceBabies
*2014 Sorento expected Feb 2013; SX Limited expected Spring 2013.
