LAUNCH PARTY ROUND-UP #AHandbookForCoolMoms

*click photos to expand* For the past 365 days we have worked our asses off to produce The Rebel Mama’s Handbook for (Cool) Moms: an early motherhood instruction manual and an art book – all in one monochromatic package.

THE GREAT (RIDICULOUS) FORMULA DEBATE

I didn’t have an easy time with my first. My husband and I called it The Dark Ages – and for good reason. She cried all the fucking time. Twenty hours a day. Every day. For three eternal months. I had a hard labour, pushed for two hours, and wanted to die from the pain…
