I’m Kesha! – an Atlanta blogger and graphic artist, wife to a crazy man, and most importantly… mom to a set of adorable preschool-age twins. I’ve always felt that there was a huge void in regards to the depiction of fun and positive African American families within social media. We Got Kidz not only fills that void, but in this age of social media, We Got Kidz opens the lines of communication for all moms and dads, offering up a refreshingly laid back approach to parenting to a “new generation” of parents.

I just filmed my 3rd segment for the CBS morning show Better Mornings Atlanta!
Kids will sleep ANYWHERE. Daily Mail featured a hilarious piece that I did that proved just that.
Apparently, my friends and family aren’t the only ones who watch my YouTube series. Yaasss! BlackWebSeries.com did a beautiful feature on us that made us proud.

So here’s what happened…
We Got Kidz was started, in the beginning, to be a virtual album of sorts. I’ll be honest and say that I had absolutely no clue as to what I was doing. (“Blogging”?? What’s that? Sounds like something you do out in the woods.) I simply wanted a place for family and friends to come and see fun videos and pictures of my newborn twins. Often times the husband and I would trip over a toy or have a particularly frightening diaper changing experience. The reality of the fact that we were now parents would hit us heavily during these moments. We’d look at each other and say with disbelief, “We got kids!” (grammatical inaccuracy and all). I started to write about these personal experiences on my blog, and people loved it. I have a gift. What can I say? 😉 From there, We Got Kidz (with a “z” for flava’) officially began; and it has since become a full-fledged lifestyle guide for the would-be “cool” parent.
Most of what you’ll read will be absolutely hilarious… or at least mildly amusing. The husband, kids, and I are just a quirky bunch by nature; so the stories we have to tell are, more often than not, hysterical. I personally spend most of my time walking that fine line between hip mom and fanny pack wearer. The hubby and I are desperate to maintain some sense of coolness. We want nothing more than to hold on to at least a shred of our funky-fresh personalities while we traverse the ups and downs of this crazy ride called parenthood. Along our journey I’ll share dope videos, awesome parenting tips, juicy entertainment news, ‘slap yo’ momma’ recipes, contributed pieces from amazing guest bloggers along with any other interesting junk that pops into my brain or slides across my desk. My husband will be making appearances here and there – popping up to regale you with his silly antics. Ultimately, we’re here to help make your life as a parent just a tad bit easier and a little bit more entertaining.

Growing up in Wilmington, NC, Kesha received the amazing opportunity to write a weekly “teen” column for the Star News. After graduating high school, Kesha moved to Greensboro, North Carolina where she attended NC A&T State University and neurotically pursued multiple degrees (simply because she couldn’t decide on just one). There she successfully published a poem (yes, one), and a few short stories. Her current baby is WeGotKidz.com – a lovely mesh of a parenting and entertainment blog. Kesha currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her lovely husband and twins AJ and Jax.
