Who is A Mom in the Making? I just realized that I had been blogging just over a year, and podcasting for about 3 months, but I hadn’t done a great job introducing myself.
Listen To This Podcast Episode
I grew up in a big family and around tons of kids. When I was little used to say I wanted to have 100 kids! Clearly I didn’t understand morning sickness and labor back then. But still… I want a really big family.
Once my fairytale of motherhood began so did the sleepless nights. I remember watching tons of Netflix… but it gets to the point that you can’t take another moment of tv. In that moment, I finally understood why all my mom friends loved blogs. Kate at The Small Things Blog had a post one day on How to Start a Blog.
That was just the inspiration I needed. But there were so many blogs out there… Who was I going to be? The Queen of Hair was obviously Kate from the Small Things Blog, Busy Budgeting Mama was the Queen of DIY.
I thought about myself, tired and exhausted in the middle of the night with a hungry baby… yet somehow I was happy. This was the life I always wanted. I was in essence A Mom in the Making. I hadn’t arrived yet! I was up all night, so I clearly still had some learning to do.
I knew there were lots of other moms out there too, who were still in the process of figuring things out. This would be the blog for them!
I have lots of friends who are annoyed by blogs or pinterest because everything seems too perfect. A Mom in the Making shows the fun and funny mistakes with motherhood.
I starting out with Discovering Beauty Being a Mom as my tagline. It was nice. There is so much beauty in motherhood even in the not so fun moments.
Now my tagline is Where Life Isn’t a Fairytale, but You’re Definitely Living the Dream. I don’t love being up all night, working while my son is at home, or squealing in pain as he sneaks up and pinches me… But I wouldn’t change it for the world.
