Hey there SMOM… Strong Mama on a Mission! My Smom journey, and it has been quite a journey, began April 4, 2014. That is the day that my baby boy was born and I became a mom for the very first time! Now, at this time, I had no idea what journey motherhood would bring. I, as many new moms do, struggled a bit at the beginning handling the demands that motherhood can bring; the late nights with a fussy baby, 5,000 diaper changes, calling the nurse helpline every other day because there is something you have a question or concern about, etc.
I could go on and on, but I enjoyed every bit of being a mama! As my son grew up and I watched him meet those expected milestones like sitting up, crawling, saying that first word that all mamas wait for, I grew more and more in LOVE with my baby which in my mind seemed unimaginable with all the love that I already felt. As my son grew older and I experienced what it really means to be a mama on a mission for her child, ArtistiKIDly Me As I Am (aKIDme) seed was planted in 2017, and later, Smom (Strong Mama on a Mission) Lifestyle Collection shortly after; they were birthed in 2019. This brand is special because of the journey that comes with motherhood; a tale that compares to none other. A journey that only mamas will ever understand and a path that only STRONG mama’s on a mission can withstand!
