This Is My Journey As A Mom

Feel free to comment on my stories.

About Me

Hello there 🙂

I am Karabo Motsiri, a South African mommy blogger that loves being a mom so much, I thought I should share my motherhood journey with you. Come along for the journey. Here, we learn as we go.

I’ve been a mom for a little over 9 months and I’m loving every moment of it.  The ups and downs. The sleep deprivation. The adorable reflex smiles we used to get. The yellow poop. The smelly farts. The vomiting. The hand washing. I’ve also received some great and weird unsolicited advice. I’m here to share. Share my motherhood journey and the amazing and sometimes very difficult times that I have as a 26-year-old black mom.

Please share the journey with me 🙂
