What ‘Mom’ Looks Like in America… Plus a Giveaway!

With Mother's Day right around the corner (we might have mentioned that before here ... and here), we've been seeing a lot of numbers popping up pertaining to what "Mom" looks like in the U.S.

How many moms are there in America?
How many moms work? How many are stay-at-home moms?
How old (and young) are we having kids today?
And what else is on our minds?

To celebrate you, and everything you do, we gathered key numbers to give you a clear snapshot of what 'Mom' looks like in America these days ...

(P.S. You'll want to make sure to scroll to the bottom of this post ... we have an awesome giveaway opportunity for you!)

    I am currently expecting my 3rd child and back in 2004 when I was expecting my first I filled my in home library with the whole series of what to expect books! Even with this pregnancy I refer back to them because everything is SOOO different!!!

    I had 4 kids and I use the book through all 4 of my pregnancies. I wouldn’t have survived them without it. I always buy that book for first time moms during their pregnancy.
