About was conceived many years ago when my husband, family and friends started to refer to me as “Tanya 411” due to the questions I would get on a regular basis :

  • What should I make for dinner tonight? Inspire me!
  • I have to buy a baby gift. Any suggestions?
  • I’m having twelve people Friday night…Help!
  • How many sleepers will I need?
  • Can you really breastfeed twins simultaneously?
  • I’m re-doing my kitchen any suggestions?
  • My dryer broke down. Where can I get the best deal?

The decision to share the knowledge and information I had acquired through my own experiences and research, as a mom of four, propelled me forward in creating this site. I love every minute of helping others with these questions – because helping them to save time & money by sharing my experiences makes me feel great.

Once my youngest was attending a ‘separation’ program a few mornings per week, I started writing.

400 (online) pages later, I gave birth to my fifth ‘baby’: That was over 10 years ago!

Since that time, has gained in popularity and was voted Top Canadian Mom Blog on Circle of Moms for 3 consecutive years.

In addition, I launched montrealmomTV on YouTube and am proud to have been a regular contributor at Breakfast Television Montreal for its 7 years on air in our fair city.

During the course of the past 13 years I have also had the opportunity and privilege to work with many different brands, and I have loved it.

It is important for you to know that as always, all opinions contained within my posts continue to be my own and can never be bought. If someone else has reviewed a product on behalf of – this will always be disclosed. I know that many of you look to my experiences before choosing to purchase a product, sign up for a service or book some time away, which is why I will always remain truthful, and which is why not everything that I review makes it onto the site.  I can tell you that I have turned down opportunities to help publicize products & services that I did not feel comfortable recommending to my readers or that were not in keeping with my personal values.

I know that you count on me to be truthful, and I will not let you down.

More about Tanya

Several years ago, Tanya had surgery to remove part of her thyroid. As part of her post-surgical care, she had to keep her neck scar covered for a year. She could not find an existing solution to comfortably and stylishly keep her scar covered while swimming or engaged in outdoor activities…so she created Bandino – sleek and stylish scar protection for those in the same boat as she was.

You can read more about how Tanya’s ‘dance with cancer’ (as she calls it) inspired her new business by clicking here.
