My name is Ilana. I’m a working mom from NYC who writes a blog instead of sleeping. (Click here for “The Best Of Mommy Shorts”.)

I have two daughters. Mazzy just turned three and Harlow is three months but by the time you read this they might both be in college. Provided their NYC preschool education hasn’t already bled us dry. Here’s their picture. If you think you have more adorable children, Mazzy and Harlow will challenge your children to a cuteness contest. Where everyone will automatically tie. Because pitting our kids against each other is totally NOT COOL. (Although I do it all the time.)

My husband’s name is Mike. I love him slightly more than my computer. But slightly less than ice cream. You can check out his class entitled “Fatherhood 101” for tips on winning baby monitor chicken and feigning naptime ineptitude.

I do tons of contests on Mommy Shorts including giveaways, caption contests and comment competitions. I am always looking for contest inspiration, sponsorships and prizes.
