Monthly Blogger Spotlight: Surprised Mama

In the past, I have already confessed to being a don’t want to be cured Twitaholic, so it should come as no shock when I say I “met” this month’s spotlight blogger on Twitter. Charma from Surprised Mama is as lovely to chat with as her baby boy, Mr. A, is sweet. The “A” in Mr. A. should also stand for ADORABLE, because he is just that! But don’t feel you have to take my word for it, check out her blog here or follow Charma on Twitter and see for yourself.

1) When & why did you start blogging?
People were constantly asking me what my son was up to on this particular day or that, and I would always have to recount a crazy story multiple times. So I started blogging in July of this year, mainly as a way to answer that question of what did Mr. A do today?

2) As a mother, what has blogging meant for you?
Blogging has been a true release for me. Sometimes as a parent, you may have days when you just want to sit in a corner and pull out all of your hair. My blog is my way of taking those particular days and adding a funny twist just to make me feel better about the randomness of parenting!

3) What’s your favorite part of the day with your child?
I love when my son first wakes up either in the morning or after a nap. I give him a little bit of time to himself before I go into the room to get him. We have a baby monitor in his room and I can hear him babbling and singing to his toys and himself. It is the cutest thing in the world. Then when I hear that little voice start yelling “Ma”, I know it’s time to go in and get him.

4) What was your latest wondrous moment with your child?
My son is trying to walk and it is so sweet to watch him try to take his first steps. He seems to like trying when he thinks no one is watching. It’s fun to watch him from a distance while he figures out this new way of moving.

5) What is your favorite Graco product?
We have had the Pack ‘n Play® Playard in the Lowery design since our son was born. We loved the Newborn Napper® feature because it allowed him to sleep comfortably in the room with us for his first 3 months. Now he enjoys playing in it while I’m cooking. We recently received the My Ride 65 Convertible Car Seat in the Prentis pattern as a birthday gift, so we are excited to make that a favorite Graco product in our family as well.
