The Mom Beat

Parenting & family news | stuff moms care about | reviews | more stories by freelance writer Felicia Pinkney


While pregnant with Child No. 1, when my Mommy senses kicked into high gear, I ate, slept and breathed all things mom, dad and baby.

More children came – four more, actually.  It was only a matter of time before my two passions, parenting and writing, merged. Thus, that became my “beat.”

I’m a veteran journalist who’s old enough to remember when newspapers were pasted up in the composing room but hip enough to know the latest trends in Web and print media.

I’ve worked for the Times-Picayune in New Orleans, The Dallas Morning News, Arlington Morning News and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

I’m equal parts writer and editor, which means I let my creative juices flow but I clean as I go. You can find my professional portfolio here.

I’m Texas-based, Louisiana-bred and passionate about my faith, the Dallas Cowboys, my husband, and our five kiddos (not necessarily in that order).

    Hi to a fellow Louisianian!
    My three children were all born at Willis-Knighton (aka Willy-K) in Shreveport. We currently live in West Monroe though. By way of sharing Texas ties too – my baby daughter (she would die that I described her that way) is a nurse in Dallas.
    I love your funny articles commenting on the real life of mommies. You’ve got it girl – such truth! Thanks for a great laugh today with “5 Signs”. Keep on sharing… good stuff.

    Hey, to a fellow Texan! I’m just south of you in Austin. Thanks for adding me to your links as a site you like. I like yours too, so I’m happy to reciprocate.
