What's happening to me?

I'm not sure if I'm sick or well.
I'm a baby, so it's hard to tell!

Becky is a trained mezzo-soprano singer and holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Iowa State University. As a former K-12 vocal music teacher and youth symphony manager, Becky has spent her career enriching children educationally, creatively, and artistically. Becky has spent years writing grants, initially as part of her previous manager position, and continues to write on a case-by-case basis.
Now as a stay-at-home mom and freelance writer/photographer for a local newspaper, Becky still enjoys singing, but above all she is passionate about being a wife, mom, and friend. Experiencing life with children has given Becky a deeper perspective on what’s most important in life.
Baby Squashy Face started as a fun summer project to spend special one-on-one time with her daughter (after all, Becky knows it’s not always easy to share Mom with a little brother). The mom-daughter duo spent almost a year bringing Baby Squashy Face to life and hopes you have as many great laughs reading the book as they did making it.
After publishing her first children’s picture book, Baby Squashy Face, Becky realized she wasn’t ready for the journey to end. She felt that a series could be developed from babies within the neighborhood. Becky hopes Baby Silly Sickies helps children feel more comfortable at the doctor and encourages children to speak up if anything is bothering them. She wants to let children know that their doctor cares about them!
