Hi There!

I'm Kristina and I'm glad that you found my website!

PwcMoms started after a friend told me I should share the calendar I compiled each month for a playgroup with more people. I grew up in Prince William County and only left long enough to go to college at Holy Cross, get married, and come back.  I love it here, and I hope that my site of kid-friendly events will help keep your family happy and busy!

I still reside here in the 703 with my husband and our three children, who we home educate, although I personally attended 13 years of Prince William County Public Schools and served as a one-term president of the PTA at my eldest child's elementary school- so if you're a PTA mom, I want to help!  Our children are a 4th grader, a 2nd grader, and a Kindergartner.

My husband is amazing and works full-time as a software engineer to pay for web hosting, math books, and the seven thousand activities our children are enrolled in. He's wicked awesome.  

When I grow up, I would like to be a professor of religious studies, and in the past have worked as a children's minister at various local churches.  If anyone at Zondervan is reading this and wants to offer me a job writing books, I'm also up for that. 

I answer all my emails, well- the ones that aren't from Africa and promise me $100,000, so feel free to contact me anytime!

Thanks for coming by, and I hope you enjoy PWC Moms as a great resource for your family!!
My site is PR Friendly, and I'm happy to hear from you about kid-friendly events in and around Prince William County and the DC Metro Area.  I will occasionally accept product reviews, as well.

I accept guest blog submissions, but am specifically interested in local voices and authors.  If you're a northern Virginia local, especially in Prince William County, and would like a place to share your voice, I'd like to hear from you!  If you are a company trying to send me some bogus guest post because you just want a link back to your site that is based in another country and sells pharmaceuticals, fireworks, or anything else I wouldn't let my kids play with, the answer is probably no.

I do giveaway posts, which also include a product review.  I also do paid advertisement spots.  However, I always reserve the right to share my true experience with users.  That means that even if a sponsor provides me with free product, if I'm not happy with it, I'm going to tell you.  I also do a fairly extensive calendar.  Whenever I am informed of changes, I update the calendar to reflect them- but I'm not always told if a session changes or is cancelled.  Please call before you go to an event, especially if it is an outdoor venue and there is inclement weather.  I do my personal best to provide accurate content, but I am not responsible for changes that I am not informed of.  It is always free to post an event with me on the calendar- and I will list for any organization that falls within my guidelines as being child, teen, and/or family friendly. This includes religious organizations, community groups, and businesses.  I do not list classes that require a monthly or yearly subscription, but I do list walk-in classes or "open play" times.

Also, all content is mine.  And you can't have it without my permission because I share worse than your toddler.  In Big People Speak, that is to say:
