I’m Chardae, first time Mama to Camille and B’s main squeeze. Have you ever heard the saying “it takes a village to raise a child”? Guess what? Mamas need a village too. When I was pregnant with Camille my village was more like a few out of town guests. It was just enough where I didn’t feel alone but more people would have been great…at least I think so.
My mission for this online space comes from wanting a village for myself. I want this to be a community place where we connect with each other while navigating the everyday highs and lows of motherhood. Seasoned Mamas can tell you it’s not always easy but it’s damn sure worth it!
A little more about me: I’m a Semi-crunchy mama with a modern twist. I’m all about breastfeeding and homemade baby food. Not a fan of giving the kid meat or medicinal drugs and constantly reconsidering vaccines. The modern side of me wants all organic cotton baby clothes and linens and wants to drive a stylish SUV while wearing designer shades, bag and shoes.
I’m loving being a Mama and wouldn’t trade the diapers and sleepless nights while teething for all the money in the world. I’ve always been a product junkie and being a Mom hasn’t made it any better. Prime example, I bought three sippy cups in a week, I have three diaper bags and I’m still looking for the “perfect” one, I have four baby carriers, two strollers (looking for a third) and about eight pacifiers (none of which she uses).
Pair that with the fact that I love giving advice and now you have a wannabe product review blogger. Pair that with my love for being in the kitchen and cooking, reading, health & wellness, shopping and snapping selfies with the Mini Me and you’ve got a blog full of possibilities. That, in a nutshell is what you can expect to see here. My thoughts, reviews and my journey through motherhood all on a platter.
Although I love giving advice I’m still finding my way on some things, especially motherhood. So while I’ll tell you all I know I’ll ask some questions too. That’s where you come in – talk back! I enjoy a good conversation! Feel free to hit me up on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or in the good ol’ comments section below. I always reply (unless I’m changing a diaper) and I don’t bite.
Thanks for stopping by! If you want to know just a little bit more feel free to ask!
