The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.

Kerry Lyons is "stayin' alive as a mom of five" in Westchester, NY and blogging about it on The Lyons Den Mom where she documents how her overly planned life took a turn toward chaos when she gave naturally conceived and gave birth to idential triplets -- the odds of having identical triplets are about 1 in 100 million!

Now Lyons juggles a full house of her five little "Cubs" ages 4-7 and a "sweet, tired husband," a full-time job that requires the occasional business trip, and still finds the time to fulfill her passion of writing. Lyons has written for The Huffington Post, Parents, and is a Top 25 Moms of Multiples as selected by Circle of Moms.

On her blog, you'll find tips on why business travel is good for moms (Tuesday Tips and Quips), ideas on how to spend time making valuable memories with your kids (See: Mother-Son Date Night), and remembering to keep a positive perspective during what may seem like a disaster, like when your child comes a knocking on your bedroom door with a bloody nose bright and early on Christmas morning while the others awake to ask over and over again whether Santa left gifts for them under the tree. What's great about reading Lyons's posts on The Lyons Den Mom blog is that it doesn't require much reading between the lines. Lyons puts so well into words what many parents are thinking, including that "Motherhood is hard," a confession that all parents can easily give a nod to, even if it they make it look easy to the outside world. — Lisa Chung
