About me

Things you should know about Mommy Gearest:

  • My name is Andrea
  • I’m a mom to two amazing kids — The K Man is 9 and his little sis, Miss Q, is 6.5 — and a wife to Big B, who is a man of the 21st century (he cooks!  Does dishes! Does pony tails!). Scroll down and watch a video of our crazy fam, which we shot when I started my blog wayyy back in 2012
  • I buy hoards of baby and kid gear, clothes, shoes, gadgets, trinkets, stuff. You name it, I either have it or some version of it. (Yes, it’s a bit of a problem)
  • I live in  the ‘burbs; actually, that’s a slight exaggeration. We’re more semi-rural
  • In “real” life, I work in communications
  • I love Facebook dearly but Instagram is where my heart is
  • We love travelling, whether it’s a road-trip-for-a-day, a couples retreat or international family travel…count us in
  • I’m passionate about sharing honest reviews related to all-things-family; I will never accept payment for a review. And whenever I accept gratis products for reviews, or if I write a sponsored post, I’ll always be upfront about it
