Some press for The Mom Report

Since December, I’ve been hosting a radio show on Pocono 96.7 FM. It’s about 15 minutes long, and it’s all about parenting in the Poconos and beyond. It’s part of The Gary Cee Morning Show, and Gary produces the show and co-hosts it.

Every week, I dig through the most popular mom topics of the week and also look for events and resources that could be of interest to moms.

I’m on 15 weeks of doing the show! It will air tomorrow (Monday, March 14) at 7 am on or on your FM dial if you’re in the Pennsylvania Poconos, or NJ/NY within 50 miles, give or take, of Stroudsburg, PA.

Pocono 96.7 FM and The Mom Report can be heard about a 50 mile range from Stroudsburg, PA or on

Here is week 14 (last week’s Mom Report) — I was thinking I’d post the written out versions of The Mom Report so that moms out there could visit and reference them with ease, as there are so many great tips and links in each one.

Here is the Facebook page, where I post the audio link every week:

- It’s crazy to think that before your baby is born is not too soon to start saving for college. In fact, it could save you thousands in the long run.

- According to, for a child born this year, parents should save at least $250 per month for an in-state public four-year college, $450 per month for an out-of-state public four-year college, and $550 per month for a private non-profit four-year college, from birth to college enrollment. That hurts my wallet and my uterus.
