Thank you for your interest in advertising with Mom Approved Reviews and News! Founded by me, Nicole Howell, mom of two boys, nurse, wife, and animal lover! I started blogging to share the crafts I did with my boys when I was a stay at home mom and it grew from there. I have 2 boys of my own who are 6 and 7, I have 11 nieces and nephews ranging in age from 6 months to 18 years old. I also have a wonderful husband, 4 brother in laws, 2 sisters, and several pets who all love helping out! Think of me as your best girlfriend – telling stories about our children, giving honest critiques of products, and providing fabulous giveaways. Because I have such a diverse family, we are sure to offer reviews and giveaways of products that interest everyone! We love to blog!
