Mandy Dawson is the creator of Mandyland, a blog depicting the wild and crazy ride of motherhood. Spending her days with two children under four, one dog, and one somewhat skeptical husband all while balancing a job, she fills her blog with family, gardening, cooking, canning, crafting and the occasional social commentary. She tries to find the humor in the everyday situations every mother faces. After all, if you can't laugh at all the things life throws at you, you might just end up eating chocolate and drinking wine. Since she's still trying to lose the baby weight, she chooses to laugh.
