About

Welcome to THE REBEL MAMA: A “Mom Blog” for the rest of us.

This site is as much my baby as my human ones are to me.  It has been nurtured and loved since it’s inception and I’m so happy it has been able to touch the lives of so many women worldwide – women who also prefer their mom blogs served straight up with a splash of curse-words and a dash of sarcasm.

When I was first pregnant, the idea of becoming a mother terrified me. All the blogs I read and the images I saw led me to believe that once you had kids, that was it. No more social life, no more fabulous things, no more adventure. Life over. Kaput. To my surprise, though, motherhood opened itself up to me as a joyful and inspiring experience, but only once I realized that I had complete control over what being a mom meant for me.

Eureka! Being a mom is awesome!

Eureka! You’re still the same, fabulous woman you were before you had kids!

Eureka! You still have a wicked sense of humour!

Eureka! Being a mom does not mean you can’t still chase your professional/creative dreams!

“Where are the women writing about THAT?” I wondered.  Et voilà; THE REBEL MAMA was born.

The kinds of rhetoric I see surrounding motherhood are always surprising to me. There are so many ways to go about the business of raising humans and everybody’s experience is valid and should be respected.  Why not stop trying to prove whose way is the best way and instead just accept that we’re all just plugging away, doing the best we can do at the hardest damn job in the world?

What we try to do at THE REBEL MAMA is lead by example. By living and writing in a way that’s true to ourselves and our experiences, we reassure women that it’s o.k. to be different; it’s o.k. to be unapologetic; it’s o.k. to be politically incorrect; it’s o.k. to be vain, or crass, or a even a little selfish – just be who you are and own that sh*t.

Through this blog, I have found a band of outsiders who consciously choose to go against the grain and take a chance at the delicate balancing act of maintaining the true essence of who they are, all the while loving and nurturing the life/ lives they’ve created.  

They are revolutionaries.  They are modern day feminists who refuse to let society tell them how a woman should act once she becomes a mother.  They lift each other up and are above judgement and cattiness. They are rebels with a cause.

Vive la sisterhood! The Rebelution is on.

    Hi Nikita,

    We love your site and would love to partner with you in some capacity. We own the boutique Ani + Wren in Toronto – we cater to expectant moms but with a lot of cool , non-maternity clothing. We think there are lots of great parallels between are businesses and we think we can do a really cool contest or promotion together.

    Let us know what you think. Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Best,

    Lauren
