Hey High School Parents,
Welcome to my blog! I’m Mel, parent of three, hoping to help you with everyday high school mom-life. My goal is to be a good wife, mom and to have as much fun as possible while helping you! I have really enjoyed working on this blog, and hope you find what I share to be helpful; so much so that you’ll keep coming back! One reason I love blogging is the ability to make a little money which will help cover a few of our expenses and to continue providing content.
So, as per FTC Regulations, I would like to let you know that I do have referral links throughout my blog. The links provide me with a small percentage of commission but do not cost you anything extra. “I (Melanie Studer) am also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.”
