I’m an English graduate turned full-time YouTuber with three gorgeous little humans and a super-dad by my side. Do You Even Mom is envisioned to be a tiny oasis for the not-so-perfect, spit-up-stained, crayon-conquering, smile-through-anything super-mamas out there who are looking for a familiar face online.
My name is Victoria Vaden King.
It was not so long ago that I found myself expecting my eldest daughter, excited to be starting a new journey but utterly terrified at the same time.
As the quintessential millennial that I am, I had been YouTubing part-time for years before this point so it was only natural that I turned to social media in an attempt to find comfort and guidance from a fellow mama.
But the truth is that I struggled to find someone who looked like me and could genuinely understand the joys and challenges of expecting a mixed-race daughter.
At a time when I desperately needed encouragement and insight from a sister –I felt alone.
We don’t do Stepford here.
My goal is to ensure that no other mama ever feels alone in their journey again.
I hope you’re able to find a post on this blog for whatever you’re facing and that my reflections and shared experiences are somehow able to motivate you to look at your own life differently and appreciate the super-human strength it takes to navigate womanhood, motherhood, marriage, and everything that comes with these blessings.
I would love to encourage you to reach out to me when things don’t look hopeful. Equally, I hope you’re inspired to let me know when they do.
