Becoming a mom has to be one of the most amazing life changing events that happen to many of us more than once. I was blessed to have had four beautiful children whom with every day show me that every moment I spent planning for their arrival never seems to go to plan. Although everything doesn’t go as planned, it was great to have those go to tools that made having them and providing for them a no brainer.

I remember walking into Babies R Us when I was pregnant with my first son, it was an experience I remember clearly where we browsed around the store just trying to figure out what we needed in the first place. Many of you may not know this but if you walk into a Babies R Us today you can receive a VIP tour of the store with a helpful guide who can tell you what the hottest and must have essentials are in the store. Babies R Us also offers Mommy and Me Classes as well as many other classes new and expecting mom’s can participate in. This is definitely new to me since I had no idea about these services until the MOABLuxe Event.
