Hello, sports mama, welcome to Modern Sports Mom! My name is Barbara and I will be your tour guide…
Modern Sports Mom is the premiere destination for today’s sports mama. If you’re like me, you spend weekends on road trips, heading from game to game, cheering your kids on, yelling at an ump or two, and celebrating the kids at pizza parties. On weekdays you’re at practices, you plan team events, wash uniforms, bake cupcakes, make sure your kids keep up with schoolwork and other commitments.
You also manage the home and the family’s needs, and maybe even a job, etc. all while trying not to lose your sense of self, or frankly your mind. You’re a woman; hands on, creative, stylish, and despite what the birth certificate says, you have a youthful spirit. You can even pull off a mean casserole, but give in to the flexibility of take-out as needed.
Also like me, you’re freakin’ tired! You could use support, a shoulder to lean on, encouragement, and easy tips on how to manage it all without losing your marbles.
Does that about sum it up?
I started my blogging journey over at Hello Life way back in 2012, and I loved every inch of it. As my kids have grown and my life has inevitably evolved, I found myself with less time to pursue my beloved hobby. The boys were getting more involved in their sports, playing more competitively, and consuming all sorts of my time! I missed blogging regularly, but I knew that my craft and decor audience was not interested in my kid’s sports adventures. I also came to the realization that while I adore being creative, I also really enjoy being a busy sports mom, and–I am not alone! There is a whole world of moms just like me, trying to keep it together, all to sit back and bask in the reward of watching their kiddo swing for the fences, score that goal, or run for that TD. So earlier this year, after lengthy conversations with the husband, and even lengthier talks with God, I decided to take the plunge and start a brand new site from scratch, and thus Modern Sports Mom was born.
Thank you to all that have supported my blogging adventures (you know who you are), and to those visiting. Strap your helmets on mamas, we are in for a fun season!
WE ARE MODERN SPORTS MOMS, AND TOGETHER, WE. CAN. DO. THIS!

Barbara is the mom behind the blog. She began writing in 2012 as the creator of Hello Life, a craft & lifestyle blog. As life evolved, and her kids became more involved in sports, she aimed to create a site that would resonate with moms like her, and in 2017 Modern Sports Mom was born. Like many of today’s mamas, she loves being creative, cooking, and fashion, and when there are a few minutes to spare, a good book. A baseball and football mom, she is fueled by her strong faith, dedication to her family, and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee! Barbara lives in California with her husband, kids, dog, and cat.
