WE’RE BRINGING SELF-ESTEEM BACK (YEAH!)

On Monday, we held our first ever speaking engagement (!!!) at SLMG, and since we’re admittedly completely unqualified to speak as “parenting experts,” we decided to talk about something that we are (more or less) experts on: The experience of early motherhood. A study performed by a team of Norwegian researchers (summarized here) recently revealed what…

REBEL MAMA HANGS

Yesterday we learned that if you flip a highchair upside down, it becomes a car seat holder and that if you ask the Gods nicely enough, you can, in fact, thwart a rainstorm. We also learned that when you put your truth and good vibes out there, incredible things can happen, including (but not limited…

WHERE (NOT) TO GO THIS CANADA DAY

Our lady Canada is turning 150 on Saturday, so there’s likely a boatload of internet lists of places you should head to with the family on July 1st – but for those of you who live in Toronto proper, are slightly reclusive, and are terrified by the idea of throngs of out-of-towners (and their spawn)…

A MOTHER’S DAY PSA FOR THE CLUELESS

Over the past few days, we’ve started really tuning into the chatter around us in order to better understand what moms truly want (or, more specifically what they don’t want) to have happen on Mother’s Day. We’ve been in a lot of situations recently where moms have been really straightforward about what their dudes do…

OH YES WE DID

We did it. All of us. Together. We told the world that moms (and women in general, for that matter) are no longer satisfied with the status quo. Actually, you guys told the world. You spoke with your wallets and you pledged your support for our little book that could. Yes yes, y’all – THE…

WE CAME. WE SAW. WE HUNG.

In case the sight of little green buds on the trees and the sensation of constantly having to sneeze didn’t serve as enough of a reminder – SPRING IS HERE! And with spring comes one very special thing: HIGHCHAIR HANGOUTS AT THE DRAKE HOTEL, BABY! So many new mamas to meet and babies to hold…

DO YOU BELIEVE IN MAGIC?

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017 is a day that I won’t soon forget. It was one of those bizarre, twilight-zone, out-of-body-experience days, wherein I knew that something amazing was happening – but it was almost as though that amazing thing was happening in some other dimension. In real life, I was performing a series of my…

MAKING OUR HANDBOOK FOR PARENTS HAPPEN

If you’ve been following along with us on Social Media, then by now you already know that we’ve officially launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds that will (hopefully!) allow us to write the most badass parenting book that the world has ever seen… The instruction manual you wish your kid came with! This will be…

ON TO THE NEXT ONE

Back in early 2016, we decided to take T.R.M. to a whole new level, together. We vowed to bring as many bomb-ass women together as we could, to form a community unlike any other. Nikita and I found out we were pregnant within 6 weeks of each other. We bought the books, signed up for…

MERRY CHRISTMAS, REBELS

I think that at the core of it, we often overestimate the depth of understanding possessed by our children. We spend a lot of time worrying about the minutia. We think about their feelings constantly. We would sacrifice anything of ours for their well beings . But I have a two-year-old. Yes, two. And I…

A LITTLE REBEL MAMA SOIRÉE

This post wasn’t something we planned to do, but last night was so beautiful and inspiring and empowering and refreshing that we felt as though we had no other option but to publicly declare our gratitude for the lady tribe that made it through the rain to join us for our little Rebel Mama soirée….

SUNDAY-FUNDAY AT MAS’OUD

I always know it’s been a really good day when I get home and bust out the old laptop to get my words out while the experience is still fresh in my head. Today (well, yesterday, by the time you’re reading it) can only be described as: glorious. Why, you ask? Because we drank champagne…
