Hey BABS! We're Julia and Delaya! Our friendship started our freshman year of high school. We ended up in the same biology class and instantly knew we had to be friends.
Twelve years later, one of us is married and the other is engaged and we both have kids. We are in the next stages of our lives with a bond that’s stronger than ever!

Silly. Socially awkward. Driven. Loves to laugh.
As young black moms, we felt there wasn't a space that honestly talked about the motherhood that we experienced. Sure we love our kids to death, but it isn't all sunshine and rainbows. In fact it's rarely that.
We want to share our lives and experiences not only as young mothers, but as individual women who are still learning about themselves. We're entrepreneurs and students that juggle day jobs along with domestic hassles on the daily.
We are literally doing everything and it's hard and the effort that we put forth shouldn't be glossed over.
Moms stumble - a lot. They mess up - a lot. We aren't perfect and shouldn't try to be. We're all just doing the best we can with what we're given and the purpose of Besties and Babies is to acknowledge all of that.
So leave your judgement at the door, because it's not welcomed here. Pick up a glass of wine or cup of tea and put your feet up. Look around and you'll find some tips, some stories and some suggestions about kids, marriage and friendship but most of all, you'll find us not taking ourselves too seriously.
