Andrea Updyke

Blogging since 2003, Andrea didn't find her writing community until the birth of her first son in 2009. Since that time her words have focused on the magical world of mothering small children, pregnancy and the lifestyle that surrounds caring for a home and family.

In her blog, Lil-Kid-Things, she explores the ongoing process of becoming a mom, while at the same time celebrating ordinary life. Andrea's goal is to encourage new moms to hang in there and know that they aren't alone. Even at 3am.

Andrea is currently working her first book, Klout for Dummies, which will be on shelves in Spring 2013. You can also find her writing for the BabyCenter Blog.
