As a mother you know that glazed look your friends with no children get when you talk about your trials with potty training, latest place you found peanut butter (and it wasn’t in the kitchen), and how you would never trade in your life with kids for hers.

By now I’m sure that you are familiar with affiliate programs and all the great ways that they help you to monetize your blog through text links, content and even graphics.
