About the bLAck mama Blog

The black mama is a blog dedicated to my journey as a twenty-something black mom in LA. A mom who is learning as she goes, and doing it with a style all her own. This is a place for moms with a sense of humor who might like to do things a little differently.

I’ve found that I appreciate the wisdom of my grandmother and other more experienced moms out there, but frankly, their advice doesn’t always work for me. I’m the kind of woman that will need my best friend to delete my google history should something happen to me because of all the weird stuff I look up while nursing my son at 2am. I’m the kind of woman that still laughs at poop jokes (and cracks up when my kid coughs and farts at the same time), and I’m the kind of woman who likes to try everything once even when someone says not to, even if it means putting breast milk on cradle cap (more on that later). I experiment until I find what works for me and I’m happy to share my finds with you. But I don’t have all the answers, instead this is more of a peek into my journey through motherhood with some surprising discoveries along the way. And of course, it all takes place in sunny Southern California in the city of angels–Los Angeles, which isn’t always as glamorous as it seems.

So welcome to the bLAck mama. Enjoy!
