Passionate About Genesee County
and the Moms Who Live Here

Welcome to Genesee County Moms Blog!

Hello Mamas, welcome to Genesee County Moms Blog! We are Elizabeth & Courtney, the Owners and Co-Founders. We are so excited to bring this amazing resource to the North Oakland and Genesee County areas!

Since the launch of Detroit Moms Blog in May of 2014, it has been a dream and a vision to expand into other areas surrounding Detroit, to bring moms a resource that connects them to other moms and makes them feel a part of something much bigger, and to expand upon the wonderful community and network of moms, friends, parents and businesses that make the community truly what it is. With the help of Courtney, a member of the DMB Executive Team, that dream and vision became a reality as Genesee County Moms Blog was brought to life!

We know first-hand how amazingly rewarding, yet wonderfully challenging Mom Life can be! Between the two of us we have SIX children, ranging in age from 1 to 16. We are wading through and navigating the ever-changing and challenging waters of parenting, just like you. Let’s support one another along the way!

Between our original content and local events, Genesee County Moms Blog will cover everything from cloth diapering to college funding, and anything that enriches, enhances and makes our Mom Lives easier in between! We want moms to know what’s happening in the community and to feel connected to the local businesses that make it thrive. Genesee County offers an abundance of activities for families and we want to make sure you know about them first hand. We are passionate about engaging with our readers online and offline, and supporting one another:

  • We have a team of twelve Contributors from all over the the North Oakland and Genesee County areas, just waiting to connect and share their Motherhood journeys with you! All of these women share different views on parenting and motherhood, and have some amazing perspectives to share with you, our readers! 
  • Through our exciting events, we will connect moms to each other, and to great local businesses! Our Launch Party, offering moms a night just for themselves {such a rarity!} at a wonderful, unique local venue, sold out within days. To those attending – we can’t wait to see you there! After the holiday rush is over, we are so excited to get to work on our spring event, Bloom! It’s a wonderful event for new and expecting moms that takes place across the country, along with our 65+ sister sites. Last year’s Bloom was simply amazing! We can’t wait to bring it to Genesee County!

We realize how isolating motherhood can feel at times, and with a little GCMB in your lives we hope that you always feel connected to other moms or moms-to-be! We want you to have a place to go when you’re struggling, to feel comfortable reaching out and asking for advice. GCMB is a place to meet your future mom friends for life, where you can be yourself without worrying about the backlash or mom-shaming that at times overwhelms us! We’re here to encourage you, and let you know you’re doing an amazing job as mother regardless of the type of parenting style you have! Our GCMB community is here to uplift you and remind you that motherhood isn’t always pretty. Frankly, it’s a beautiful and chaotic mess {at times}, but we wouldn’t trade our Mom Lives for anything! 

We asked our Team to fill in this blank: Motherhood is ________________________.

There are so many words that could be used to complete that sentence! Here is what we came up with:

  • Overwhelming yet simply gratifying!
  • A roller-coaster…..but you’ll survive.
  • Everything I dreamed it would be.
  • The only job that is the most difficult yet makes my heart explode every.single.day.
  • Loving unconditionally.
  • A learning experience.
  • Not for sissies!
  • Challenging.
  • Rewarding.
  • Full of ups and downs but worth every minute! Mom life is really the best life!
  • Two words: exhausting and joyful.
  • Humbling.
  • A wonderful, exhausting, joyful, crazy ride!

Fill in the blank with us: what does Motherhood mean to you? We can’t wait to hear your answers, and to share this incredible parenting journey with you through our Genesee County Moms Blog resource and community!

    Motherhood is ever changing! Just when you think you have your stuff figured out, bam… something happens it’s all different.
