Blog about it. 

Editor's Blog

Betty Casey has been editor of TulsaKids for over 20 years – her youngest child was 3-years-old when she started working for the magazine. She and her husband Wes have three young adult children. Betty’s blog ranges from writing about current issues or information of interest to local parents, reflecting on her life without kids at home, and posting a few recipes now and then. (Cooking and running are two or her favorite past-times.) Betty is the author/illustrator of two children’s books, May Finds Her Way and That Is a Hat (The RoadRunner Press) and she is currently working on a third. She was named Blogger of the Year in 2014 by The Great Plains Journalism Awards and was a finalist in 2015. She has won numerous writing awards from the Parenting Media Association.

Honeybee Mama

Having always said that life shouldn't get in the way of living, Missy strives to find adventure with her children even when things get hairy. Missy and her husband, Marc, have four children. With busy schedules and a small business to run, Missy is not lacking for things to occupy her time. She understands the challenges of being a single parent and is learning to be a stepmom. A Tulsa native, this mama loves exploring fun activities locally and shares her experiences with you in her blog. Upfront and honest, she doesn't pull any punches about meltdowns in the mall or potty accidents at public events. She carries her unique perspective into every challenge she encounters, sharing insights with her readers along the way.

The Wellness Dude 

As a father of two vibrant girls, teen and pre-teen, and husband to a fiery and independent woman, Eric embraces living with all women. His family represents the mix of the traditional nuclear family with the modern role reversals of a new millennium household. 

Being the “wellnessdude” doesn’t mean he runs laps and does pushups all day. He's not a former-Olympian or  locally-known athlete who runs a gym and weighs his food. He has a desk, deals with meetings, traffic, kids’ activities, and yardwork. 

The difference is that his job (and personal mission) is to help people wake up happy, healthy and ready to seize their day.
