Who am I?
My name is Sydney but according to Starbucks employees, you can call me Cindy. I am the mother of a 1 1/2-year-old daughter named Lily, otherwise known as Silly Lily because that girl is crazy in the best possible way. We live in sunny San Diego, California which sounds wonderful, but my dream is to someday live in a place that experiences all four seasons.
I am also doing this whole parenting thing alone, I believe they call it being a single mother. I luckily don’t feel single very often though considering I have the most supportive parents and 4 siblings I can take advantage of whenever I need.
Well, enough about me!

What inspired me to start a blog?
Honestly, I had a dream about a website called Me and Lily. A blog where I would help other mother’s through their motherhood journey by sharing my story and other tips and information. I had been hunting for jobs I could do at home for months, so the universe must have been giving a nudge in the right direction.
The morning after my dream, I decided to start a blog. I had never read a blog before and didn’t know anything about starting one. All I knew was a need a job to support me and my daughter and having a blog seemed like the perfect fit.
I LOVE sharing information that I learn that I think might be helpful to others. I realize that not everyone is as fond of doing research as I am, so I like to spread the love when it comes to things I discover. I swear my tombstone will have a quote written on it that says “Hey, so I read this article…”
I also LOVE writing. I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t spending all my free time writing something. From poems to songs to essays and now my blog! Writing is just what I am meant to be doing and I am so happy I found a way to use it to help other mamas.
After about a year of this blog being called Me and Lily, I decided it was time for a name change. I wanted my blog to have a name that clearly reflected the content I was publishing. This blog is not really about me or my daughter, it’s about motherhood! I decided to call this blog Motherhood Sprouting because motherhood is a process of constant growth and learning.
Even though this blog sprouted from a fluke idea in a dream, it has grown into my biggest passion and I hope one day I can say it helped thousands of mamas on their journeys through motherhood!
Well, that’s about it!
