Welcome to The Sensible Mom!
You’ve landed on a blog that offers tasty recipes, helpful tips, and other useful information to help moms in their everyday lives.
My name is Sandra and I’m the author of this blog.
It’s nice to meet you.
I’m also a Christian, wife, and mother to five wonderful children. I live in the Chicagoland area, and I rarely experience a dull moment as wife to Ruben and mom to my five children ages 16, 13, 9, 7, and 4.
Besides blogging, I love social media, creating videos here and here, DIY homemade health and beauty products (I wrote an ebook featuring 21 recipes), and helping other moms succeed in growing their online businesses.
