Whatever brought you here – welcome! My name is Cindy and I’m a DC-area writer, photographer, and stay-at-home mom. I’m also a JC girl, so while you’ll find I often share elements of my faith in my writing, you’ll never have to worry about me secretly trying to convert you with my words. Faith doesn’t work that way, and I’m horrible at being subtle.
I started blogging here six years ago as a way to find humor, sanity, and community in the midst of new motherhood. I had loads of things to write about because ridiculous things always seemed to happen to me. They still do. Only now that my girls are older I find myself with less to share. Not because I’d evolved into a great mom who stopped humiliating herself on a regular basis. (Wouldn’t that be nice.) It’s just that now most of the stories aren’t mine to tell, and the last thing I want to do is put my kids in awkward spots now that their friends are online – growing up as a girl is hard enough!
So now Bad Mommy Moments is a mixture of funny, old posts/embarrassing moments, and new, more mature reflections and insights on motherhood…and embarrassing moments. Who am I kidding? Humiliating myself has just become part of who I am.
When I’m not writing about motherhood you’ll find me photographing children and families at CindyKane.me, Tumblr and Instagram. I’m also a storyteller with SpeakeasyDC - you can check out some of my live stories here.
