Cbus Mom offers suggestions and reviews of kid-friendly activities, people, businesses…and whatever I want to write about, I guess. Mostly, all stuff covered on the blog is in Central Ohio. I am a Columbus, Ohio mom who likes to get out and explore with the shorter (well, almost as tall as me now!) and cuter versions of myself. Knowing what to expect ahead of time helps with planning, and hopefully, these experiences and suggestions will help you too!


Me. Eating. As usual.

My home is in an awesome Columbus suburb filled with the laughter of two children, a delightfully sarcastic husband, and a sweet bathroom trash-eating shih tzu. My daughter thinks she is the princess who reigns over the neighborhood, and my son is a little gladiator who either protects our castle or starts fights with neighboring villages…or at least his sister. I prefer to think of myself as the Queen of the house and have been so coined by my daughter, but am probably more similar to the court jester or nursemaid. Gotta love motherhood!
