One of my daily must-visit destinations is MommyDaddyBlog, the online home of Mommy (Sheena) and Daddy (Greg), junior high sweethearts who've been chronicling their adventurous journey through first-time parenthood on their fantastic site. Their son, Jayden, who turns a ripe old age 1 next month, is an absolute stunner—cute as a button and, if he's anything like his mommy, bright as a ray of sunshine and sweet as a red velvet cupcake. Jayden is the star of MommyDaddyBlog; every toy/educational product/tech gadget/piece of clothing his parents evaluate for their readers gets a working over by Mr. Jayden, making the testing at MommyDaddy blog authentic and trustworthy. But it's Sheena's wonderfully warm, giving personality that won MyBrownBaby over. No question is a dumb question to her, and her hand is always extended to help pull up newbies like me who are still trying to find solid footing in the blog world. I absolutely adore this self-proclaimed Disney fanatic, who, in addition to being the head-mommy-in-charge of her blog, is one of Wal-Mart's Elevenmoms; she's a proud, beautiful, strong sister with a giving spirt--everything we wish for in a true friend. I absolutely adore her, and I know you will, too. Here, I present Sheena Williams of MommyDaddyBlog as MyBrownBaby's Mom of the Week.

My name is… Sheena Williams.

I live in… Chicago.

My brown baby is… Jayden Elijah.

I make a living… as a blogger and a social media consultant.

The last time my kid cracked me up… was last night, when he grabbed my face and gave me a big drool-drenched smooch.

The last book I read with my baby was…"EeBee's Adventures Bath Time."

My favorite place to take my child is… outdoors. When it's warm, we go to the park or walk around Lake Shore Drive in downtown Chicago. We also like to take him in the stroller on a trail nearby. Generally, we'll take him wherever there's grass so that we can get photos of him.

My proudest mom moment was… during labor, when all the nurses nicknamed me Super Woman because I remained relaxed, despite the trauma of my ridiculously strong contractions. I know they probably say that to all the moms, but it gave me such a feeling of pride knowing that that cute little dumpling was mine and i worked hard and smart for him to have a great first day outside my belly.

My most embarrassing mommy moment was the time when… Jayden pooped on me at the Walmart checkout. Get the gory details HERE.

The thing I most want my child to know is… well, as canned a response as this sounds, that he can achieve anything with a little determination.

The one family tradition I hope my child continues when he grows up is... aw man, we suck. We don't have any traditions. Well, except that I can make a mean apple turnover. Maybe Jayden will learn how to make them with me one day, and then pass along the recipe to his family.

If I could invent one thing to make being a mom easier, it would be…time in a bottle!

The kid snack I’m most likely to get busted eating is… teething & biter biscuits.

The most important life lesson I want my baby to learn is… sometimes it takes enduring failure to reach success.

The one thing no one knows about me is… I eat Campbell's Soup At Hand in the shower. Yes, I'm the ultimate multi-tasker.

The thing I lost as a mom that I wish I could get back is… silence.

My “I’d Rather Be…” bumper sticker would say… vacationing in the tropics.
