IN TIMES LIKE THESE

Times like these are hard for people like us – you and me – emotional people – to bear.  I can only imagine that we all feel the same way.  Overwhelmed. Outraged. Helpless. I mean, for fuck’s sake – What has happened to us? What is wrong with our society? Why are we so addicted…

FALL: REBEL MAMA STYLE

When we do fall, we go hard. How could one not love this season? Epic natural visuals (especially up here in The Great White North), a reason to drink three hot coffees a day, Paris Fashion Week, Virgo SZN, and that crisp breeze that whispers in your ear, “How shall we layer today?”  Raw denim and stacked-heel boots…

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…

FOUND: A CURE FOR VAGINAL DRYNESS

“What surprised me most about this study was how surprised my male colleagues were with the findings,” claims Dr. Wright – the ‘whistle-blower’ who is being hailed by women the world over as The One Who Told Men Everywhere What We’ve Known Since The Beginning of Time. “My hypothesis was simple,” claims the sole female…

A SURVIVAL KIT FOR THE REST OF US

When we were pregnant, we lived and died by the almighty list. There were lists for everything, coming at us from all directions. But being the task oriented, list-obsessed Virgos that we are – we secretly loved it. We had lists of foods to eat for optimum fetus health, exercises to do for optimum prenatal…

IN RESPONSE TO: BURNING MAN BREAST MILK DRAMA

There’s a post-Burning Man Instagram photo floating around the Interweb right now that has gained a lot of traction in the mommy realm. Because we are a part of the online mommy community, we’ve had an inordinate amount of people bring it to our attention in some way, shape, or form… Mostly because people seem…

90 MINUTES

Written and submitted by a fellow Rebel Mama. *** I’ve got a guilty little secret. I say guilty because it sometimes feels like an indulgence… Twice a week for 45 minutes, I get to sit and sip coffee and talk about myself.  And although on occasion I have been known to talk to myself (there…

HFM: THE NEW CLAP

Chances are you remember that episode of Sex and The City where Miranda finds out she has an STD and has to make a list of all of the people she’s slept with, only to have to turn around and call them all to let them know the horrifying news that they too need to…

TMI – TOO MUCH INSECURITY?

Rebel OG Nikita wrote an amazing article on acronyms that made my heart flutter with pride and hope for the future. It also reminded me of a particular acronym that I would really like to highlight and murder. TMI. TMI. TMI. For those still trying to decipher the mom codes, it means “too much information”. When…

BE NICE TO YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW (FOR REAL)

I’m a mother of two boys, aged three-and-a-half and one-and-a-half. I deal with a lot of talk about penises and poo. I encounter small corners of my home, FILLED with boogers. I get smothered with cuddles and I kiss a shit-ton of owies. As a mother of two boys, I know that in a few…

WHAT TO DO WITH ALL THAT DAMN LAUNDRY

I fondly recall a time in my life when a regular sized bottle of laundry detergent would last me an entire calendar year. Now? Dude. I’m flying through detergent as fast as Puff Daddy flies through Ciroc at an Ibizan yacht party. Where the fuck does it all even come from? It’s a question I’ve…

RAISING THE (FEMALE) FUTURE

Confession: I secretly Insta-follow this one friend of a friend (‘secretly’ meaning I don’t officially follow her, but will look her up every day to see what fabulous shit she did the night before). The kicker? I don’t even like this broad. She’s actually a mean person. I once overheard her at a party call…
