I like to keep things light and fun here at Word to Your Mother, but this requires me to put on my Mom Jeans and get serious. For my Disclaimer Policy, please visit this page
Some posts from Word to Your Mother Blog (herein known as WTYM) may contain affiliate links that pay out a small commission if you happen to purchase something through them. It is important to note, that this does NOT affect the price, or cost you anything extra; rather it gives WTYM credit for driving business to the companies WTYM is an affiliate for. If I post an affiliate link to a product or company, it is something that I have personally used, or would support and/or recommend without an affiliate link. As passionate as we are about providing you with excellent content, keeping up with the latest and greatest requires lots of hard work and investment – so the affiliate money we make helps keep this website up and running, so we truly appreciate the support.
