On The Blogroll: A Momma Grows in Brooklyn

The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.

Blogging From: Brooklyn, New York

This Brooklyn mom has been blogging and journaling about motherhood almost since she brought her first baby home in 2009. Quirkily admitting that motherhood is “truly magnificent and because I am so sleep deprived that if I do not write it down, I will undoubtedly forget it.” Who could fault her for that? Most of the blog catalogues innumerable precious stories of daily life with her sons as they learn and teach each other what mom and baby life is really like. Tossed into the blog are fun community news posts, featuring great events in Brooklyn for moms and their kids, and sometimes just the moms (relaxing yoga, anyone?)

If you’re a mom dealing with sibling strife, look no further than A Momma Grows In Brooklyn. She’s currently got two little guys on her plate and constantly juggles topics like getting the two to sleep in the same room peacefully, and yes, through the night. She always manages to find the light in these situations too, which is reassuring for any other moms struggling in the same boat.  A Momma Grows In Brooklyn never pretends that motherhood is easier than it is, but who really wants sugarcoating when it comes to comrade-centric motherhood blogs?

As entertaining and adorable as the postings are, this Momma doesn’t update on the regular. However, definitely keep A Momma Grows In Brooklyn in your active Blogroll-odex and check back a few times a month for some great Momma anecdotes that will be relatable to almost any mom, Brooklynite or not. -- Melanie Baker
