TMC welcomes Sugar Mama, author of the blog Daily Dose of Sugar Mama. She is one of those bloggers that you will want to immediately add to your reader. She has a gorgeous, clean and functional blog design and excellent content. Like many of us, she writes about this gig called motherhood but she infuses her own story into her blog with authenticity – something we all gravitate toward when finding a new blog to read. I hope you take the time to get to know her! Here is how she describes her blog in her own words:
“When I was coming up with names for my blog I knew very little about SEO in blogging so I didn’t consider the ridiculous keyword searches that would bring people to my blog. That is not the kind of Sugar Mama I represent, and I can imagine it’s a disappointment to some when they reach my blog and find it’s mostly about motherhood. My nickname came about one day several years ago while I was baking and my three kids were watching “The Proud Family.” On the cartoon the kids call their grandmother “Sugar Mama.” My oldest son looked at me in the kitchen and said that name would fit me since I’m always baking. The nickname stuck and now it’s everywhere; embroidered on my aprons, printed on my recipe cards, even written on my kitchen chalkboard…So it only seemed fitting that I include my nickname in my blog.
My blog offers a daily dose of unpredictable slices of my life in hopes that it will somehow benefit yours. I’m a mom like most of you, and I struggle every day with all that means. As well as being a mom to a 14, 12, and 8 year old I also run a busy home daycare for teachers. That means I still experience the colicky crying, terrible twos, potty training, and heartbreak on the first day of school. It also means I get the summer off– bonus! While I experience all that comes with babies and toddlers I’m also weaving the windy road of raising school age kids, including a tween and teen.
Lastly, but by no means least, I’m married to Sugar Daddy. It’s been a balancing act managing both of our very stubborn personalities, but I couldn’t be married to anyone else. He keeps me on my toes, doesn’t let me get wrapped up in the petty things, and is easy on the eyes. In fact, I’ve had a blog follower request that I post more pictures of him! But of all of his strengths, I love most watching him father our three children– it’s more of a turn-on than jewelry or flowers any day!
It’s an honor being featured here. I hope to represent all that being a Theta Mom stands for. My blog is authentically me. I write about my teen pregnancy, attempts at being crafty, simple but delicious recipes, life in my 30’s, the joys and stresses of motherhood, and other random bits. Daily Dose of Sugar Mama is always honest and never perfect.”
