Mom to 3 older children
United States of America
About: After 11 years as a children’s book editor in NYC, Courtenay moved to Virginia in search of a yard and the ability to buy more groceries at once than she could carry in two hands. She continues to work in children’s books, freelance writing and editing, and remains plugged into the ever-changing world of baby gear reviewing for websites such as momfinds.com. With her second daughter (just over a year) and a 4 year old, her view on baby products has changed from “must have the very best” to “the very best is usually unnecessary—and overpriced.” Someone who formerly claimed she would only have wooden heirloom-quality toys and would not allow tv, Courtenay now lives in Richmond among hoards of plastic pink Polly Pocket clothes and Disney DVDs.
