Parenting advice, musings and everything else
Women supporting women
Women supporting women and parents supporting parents. #adultingishard especially for women – but does it have to be? Trying to do everything all at once and be the best at the same time is exhausting. Each day brings more to do and more to manage topped off with doing it with an effortless appearance. Self imposed pressures, mom goals and keeping up with the Kardashians makes for a hamster wheel of a life. As women who are right alongside of you we say it’s time to dismiss the stereotypes and be okay with accepting shortcuts, peer support and coming up short.
Here, you’ll find solution-focused articles rooted in parenting advice and learnings, emotional health and wellness, and featured articles from our women’s community centered on women’s health and support.
Our goal is to provide USEFUL and straightforward parenting advice, tips, methods, laughs and musings. No backstory, endless history or BS. We don’t have time to write it and you don’t have time to read it.
