Amanda, aka Dumb Mom, is the mom behind the popular humor blog, parenting BY dummies. Outsmarted by her three Dudes daily as she attempts to navigate motherhood, childhood, and everything in between, Dumb Mom enjoys sharing her stories of failure and success with her readers in a humorous, heartfelt, and honest way. She may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but she is definitely the best dressed (an advantage completely lost by being inside of a shed) as she prides herself on being a handbag role model for the masses. When not blogging or taking photos, you can find Amanda on her blog and on Twitter @thenagainphoto. Parenting BY dummies: so DUMB, it’s Funny!

Sarah Visbeek believes that sometime after having children, she may very well have lost her mind. Aside from a shameless addiction to Coke Zero, sarcasm, bad reality television, and TJMaxx (or Marshalls, she’s not picky), Sarah is a full-time working mother of three sassy boyz. Her blog, In the Trenches of Mommyhood, chronicles her guilt-laden working-motherhood journey. The good, the bad…and the boogers. You can find Sarah on Twitter @sarahviz.
