Alexis Maycock

Hey! My name is Alexis and I am a wife and mom to two beautiful girls, Maylin (12) and Malia (3). My family and I moved a year ago to Texas from Michigan. We currently reside in Aubrey. We have been enjoying exploring and getting to know our new home! I blog and create content over at Motherhood Menageries where I share my unique collection/take on motherhood from a positive parenting viewpoint. I am also the founder of Joy of Motherhood, an extension of my blog and a safe space online community designed to help mothers reclaim the joy of motherhood through positive parenting solutions. I also enjoy discovering new restaurants and local hotspots, a hot cup of coffee and a good book at a bookstore, and being active in my school community as a PTA Board member at my daughter’s middle school!
