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.

    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.
