Being a little brown dot in a sea of beige comes with some unexpected pressure and responsibility. Check out my guest post on Helicopter Mom and Just Plane Dad where I explain why it’s necessary for me to acknowledge my race in this predominantly Caucasian world of mommy blogging.


I’m a married, African-American, stay-at-home mommy with two little African-American preschoolers at home.

“Well whoopty-whoo,” I’m sure you’re saying. Well let’s take things just a step further. I happen to be a mommy blogger. I blog about my life, my husband, my crazy twin preschoolers, and just parenthood all around; and in this particular blogging genre, there don’t happen to be very many moms of um… my persuasion.

To put it bluntly: there just aren’t that many black ladies out there gabbing online about family and parenting. Why? Well, that has a sad – yet interesting – answer…

    I just found your blog and I love it! Loved this post! There are literally 4 Black mommy bloggers in my area and about 100+ Caucasian. Every time I find a new positive Black mommy blogger, I get excited and even more inspired to keep going 🙂

    Just happened on your blog by accident following another mom’s blog on house cleaning techniques.
    I too am an African American in the sense I wasn’t born here. I always wonder where are the black mommies on the blog-o-sphere? Good to finally run into one and I’ll start following you. I have two toddlers myself and while I work outside of the home currently, the adventures are still there. I started a baking blog and will start one up about my home soon, maybe I’ll incorporate the crazy life we have with two toddlers.

      Glad you found me! Yeah, there’s not that many of us. We’ve got to stick together and support one another. What’s your blog? I’d love to follow you as well.
