HI! I’m Letitia, the writer and artist behind Apparently a Mom. When I was pregnant with my first child in 2013 I was quite young and felt isolated. I wanted to share my journey, what I knew and was learning. Ultimately, I wanted a community. I realized how desperately I needed a place that talked about the good, the bad, the crayon drawings on the walls, and the 4 am wake-up calls. I dreamed of a place where what it’s truly like to be a parent isn’t a secret.

Apparently a Mom was built on the idea that honest and open discussion about being a parent is needed. Long gone are the days where we only speak about being a parent like it’s easy, simple, and always beautiful. We all know that is not what it is. We all know we don’t live social media-perfect lives all the time. The blog was created in hopes of connecting parents in a community that celebrates the sweet moments to the trying ones with everything in between. Parenting is scary and there is often never a clear answer how to go about it.

Here at Apparently a Mom we also know that there is humour in being a parent; one unlike any other. We know that self-care and mental health for parents is vital and not spoken about nearly enough. We know that there is something incredible about being a parent, something that even as a writer, I find difficult to put into words.

In short, we strive to be a place that encompasses the good, the knowledge, the funny moments, and the pertinent discussions for your parenting journey. We are #Momlife Illustrated
