Welcome to Becoming Mamma!  I am so glad you are here.

Anna at Becoming MammaMy name is Anna.  I started this site for the stay-at-home mom, who like me is finding her place in the world while being radically different than everyone else around them.

Being a stay-at-home mom can be isolating both physically, financially and socially and while you are pouring your heart and soul into your family, the outside world is constantly thinking you live a luxurious life or are a lazy uneducated woman.  But this isn’t true.

For many of us, we are highly educated, hard working, lovers of our family, leading well planned intentional lives.  So this site is for you to remember that you are doing the most important work.

Your sacrifices do matter and that you did make the best decision.  A child belongs at home, loved by his/her family.  Not in a room full of strangers who don’t and never will love him/her.

So stay strong mamma, these years are short and not measured in bank accounts or house size but in how well we filled our children’s love cup.  We have chosen the path less traveled and it has made all the difference.
