A little about me: I’m Randi, a native New Yorker, Stay-at-Home-Mom, homeschool teacher, and the creator of Surviving Mom Blog. I currently live in Atlanta with my husband, rambunctious 8-year-old daughter, 2 cats, and a very hyper dog.
A bit of backstory; writing has always been my outlet. At 8 years old I organized and edited a children’s newspaper (unfortunately my fellow journalists were not as enthusiastic, and Kids Weekly was shut down for press after one issue). I turned to the power of pen on paper to help cope with the hardships that took place in my childhood, and I have been featured in numerous publications. Writing has been my constant and helped me become the person and mother that I am today.
I came up with the name Surviving Mom Blog because of my struggle, survival, and healing from an abusive mother. Also, as a mom I am most definitely surviving the trials and tribulations of motherhood!
My posts discuss strategies and provide support regarding motherhood, relationships, mental health/wellness, and trauma. I created this blog to bring awareness and words of encouragement to everyone’s individual journey.
My hope is that my words bring you comfort, occasional humor, and validation. I want this to be a forum where you feel heard, understood, and welcomed.
Let’s navigate this roller coaster of life together. <3
Please feel free to contact me to say hi, share your own story and struggles, and/or any suggestions about what you’d like me to write.
I’m so glad you’re here!
