Remember that there are lots of ways to contribute to yummymummyclub.ca. There are certainly articles and stories that we are happy to have all year round. Because we publish content to our site daily, we don't have to wait for a specific time for you to tell some of your tales.

We always want to have your articles about pregnancy, child birth, babies, toddlers, children, teenagers. We want to hear your funny stories, your expert tips and tricks, and your heartfelt admissions. We want you to make us laugh, to make us cry, and to make us think. 

Are you a mother of reinvention? Are you a grandparent? Do you have a child with special needs? Have you started a business from scratch? We want to hear your story!

We also want to hear from you if you are a SAHM, a WAHM, a work-in-an-office mom or anything in between! Tell us about you! 

Do you love to travel? We wanna know about the roads you’ve travelled. Have you been to any fabulous destinations? Horror stories about travelling abroad? Tips and tricks for packing? Advice on travelling with kids? How to pack for the whole family? Occupying a toddler on a plane? Sexy places for mummies?

Are you crafty? Are you an excellent baker? Are you super organized? Do you have amazing tricks for making and hosting the perfect birthday party? Spill it on our site!

Submitting could not be easier!
