Who is SCMB?
Sonoma County Moms Blog is a contributor based parenting resource for wine country moms. We have 28 local moms who write for us (more about our team of contributors here) about all things relating to motherhood, friendship, marriage, and what it’s like to live in this hideous place:
Wine country does a few things really well, (outside of wine, beer, food, and lack of weather, that is). We are really great at building smaller niche communities. We are fantastic at supporting each other. All wine country residents truly know how to embrace the good life. But, sometimes, we struggle to demonstrate how family-friendly our “adult-beverage” culture is. And we really struggle with a broader sense of community for families.
As a mother of three, and wine country lifer, I’ve personally experienced the challenge of connecting to other area moms and family resources. Finding things to do with the kids on Saturday morning is much easier now than it used to be, but it still isn’t simple. Many have said that as a newer transplant to wine country it can be hard to find mom groups. I’ve found even locals struggle with that.
Part of the work of mothering includes lonely stretches, like when you have a newborn and it’s flu season, or your new preschooler contracts head lice. Motherhood has solitary moments, that’s almost part of the job description. But the lonely part? That’s what we here at Sonoma County Moms Blog are attempting to fix. Because sometimes your toddler hasn’t slept all night (and neither did you) so you miss the library story-time. Or you’re working and it seems like all the age-appropriate events are during normal business hours. Sometimes, sometimes, the lonely part of motherhood is made worse because we aren’t doing enough for each other on the sisterhood front.
But SCMB can make this better for Wine Country moms. Whether you have just enough time to peruse our page for our guide to Postpartum and Pregnancy Resources, or read about the perils of feeding your toddler, if all you have time for is to hide in the bathroom and scroll through our instagram take-over, that’s enough. You can belong here, with the rest of us, tired and overworked mommas.
And because there will come a day when that won’t be enough for you, we are actively working on building partnerships with local companies to bring you Mom’s Night Out’s, date nights, playgroups and family-friendly events. In the meantime, join one of our amazing Neighborhood Groups and connect with moms in individual towns!
Sonoma County Moms Blog is thrilled to belong to City Moms Blog Network, with over 50 individual community builders all over the United States doing similar things in their own cities and towns.
Thank you so much for coming by, make sure you do so frequently as we will be publishing fresh content at least five days a week and will be asking for more contributing writers to join our team in the next few months! In the meantime you can find us on Facebook, Instagram + Twitter!
