Noteworthy quotes from Nancy’s Momtastic blogs:

From ‘Nancy Fills Us In’

  •     "If my kids had to describe me in one word, it would be… overprotective. I always call myself Marlin, the Dad fish in the movie Nemo who is always trying to protect his child."
  •     "We chose Ashby Grace as our daughter’s name because… it is a family name. Ashby was my grandfather’s name and he was such a good, good man."
  •     "My desert island album would be… Garth Brooks’ Greatest Hits. I grew up in South Carolina, so I am a huge country music fan."

From "My Advice on Blending Families…"

  •     "It takes a long time for blended families to feel comfortable and function well together. Be patient!"
  •     "Limit your expectations. Start slow and you’ll build positive, long-term results."
  •     "When Keith proposed to me a year after we met, it wasn’t just Keith getting on his knee asking me to be is wife; his boys were with him and asked me to be part of their lives, too!"

"Nancy’s fresh and compassionate approach to life and family is the perfect way to kick off 2014 on Momtastic," stated Rebecca Schmitt, Vice President and General Manager of TotallyHer Media.
