Hi, I’m Camaron Brooks. My friends call me Cam (so, feel free!) I’m a former TV Reporter/Anchor who left small market TV News to start a family in 2013. I thought swapping the newsroom for the nursery would be easy but it proved my hardest assignment to date. Learning to enjoy the moment was the first lesson of motherhood (this is still my greatest opportunity for growth.) Seven years, three kids, and two books later; I’m still finding my way. The only constant is love and writing.
My latest book Lost Between the Mess and the Magic takes you through my third pregnancy and the birth of my son Corbin. I wanted to be a better mom but needed to drop the perfectionism or risk losing everything. Manifesting a happier home took courage, as I faced my feelings of guilt, depression, and shame for yelling at my older kids. I continue to learn every day from my three greatest teachers. I thought my role as mom would mean teaching and shaping the lives of my children but Brandon, 6, Addison, 4, and Corbin, 2; teach me more about myself than I could ever teach them. I’m here to share my shortcomings, my triumphs, and how I make sense of this joyride.
I also share relevant parenting books I’ve read and the techniques I’ve tried. My biggest struggle as a stay-at-home mom is using positive parenting techniques. I’ve had to do some emotional work. It’s a full-time job, folks. I also deal with the same insecurities about not providing financially for my family all modern women must face. I hope my embarrassing moments give you a laugh and make you feel less alone. I hope you feel supported whether you’re a working mom or if you stay-at-home. We’re all in this together! I hope we can giggle together and celebrate the awesome responsibility of raising children. We’ve been given this amazing gift.
