WHAT WOULD DADS DO?

While we can’t disclose any of the details quite yet, we wanted to write a little post to prep you for a v exciting announcement that we are poised to make in the coming weeks. It’s an announcement that signifies a changing day in our careers. An announcement that legitimizes the insane amount of work…

I’M TRYING

Written by Meg Broadbent *  “I’m not pregnant.” It’s a phrase I’ve gotten used to saying lately, especially in texts to my husband. Tonight, I texted the same phrase to a few girlfriends, the ones who are in the know, who wait with me each month, eagerly awaiting day 28 when I’ll wake up in…

THE REBEL MAMA MANIFESTO

REIMAGINING MOTHERHOOD We’ve been thinking a lot about purpose lately.  Since we’ve come to learn that having purpose is absolutely integral to one’s happiness we’ve been consumed with carrying out a careful evaluation in order to establish what our own purpose is.  Obviously a major contribution that we will make to the world lies in the 2ft…

HOT TIPS FOR RAISING A FEMINIST

If you’re a normal human being living in 2018, you are acutely aware that although we’ve come a long way, we still have a long road ahead when it comes to both gender equity and gender equality; but let’s be positive here focus on the progress for a minute. When we look around, we see signs…

THE SINGLE MOM YOU THINK YOU KNOW

(SUBMITTED ANONYMOUSLY. APPRECIATED IMMENSELY. ) * I’m the Queen of Words and I’m the Queen of Broken Hearts. I am the Queen of feeling too much and the Queen of squirrelling away my pain so I appear unbreakable. I know many women like me, but we hide our feelings (and our tears) and put on…

REGRETTING YOUR KIDS

It’s a hot topic these days with equal parts excitement that someone finally said something about this ultimate-taboo subject and (of course) mommy-shaming for daring to mention publicly, dare I even write it, regretting having your children. So, I’m here to bare all and fess up that I have regretted having my daughter for the last year…

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…

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE “DAD BOD”

I actually just have a few questions about this whole “dad bod” thing. Before I begin, I’d like to preface this by saying that my problem with the phenomenon of widespread acceptance of male flabbiness has nothing to do with my personal preference insofar as the male physique is concerned. Whether a man is skinny, chubby…

THINK BEFORE YOU POST: A NOTE FROM A PRO

Written by ARIANE LAEZZA I know you think 30-year-olds are old as fuck. I know, because when I was your age, I did too (and being at the age where I say things like, “when I was your age,” I really do realize how annoying I sound, but stick with me here). Allow me to…

TOO HOT TO BE A MOM (WHAT?)

This won’t be a long post. It’s more of a rant and then I’m done with the topic because dwelling on it and expending more energy on it would just be a waste of my time. A few nights ago, at a scene-y party downtown, a stranger told me he thought I was beautiful. I…

AN OPEN LETTER TO MY BOOBS

Today, as I was disrobing in preparation for an indulgent, mid-afternoon, long, steamy shower (Oh hi, heaven? Is that you?), I found myself face to face with my naked reflection in the bathroom mirror and I had to laugh. A little background: I have been pregnant or nursing (CONSISTENTLY) since August of 2013. If you’re…

MOTHERHOOD. YOU CAN SAY THAT IT SUCKS.

Right now, today, as we speak, on Women’s Day, there are thousands – likely hundreds of thousands – of women out there, belting back wine, smoking weed, taking up yoga/hiking/meditating/whatever just to cope with the fact that sometimes, having kids totally sucks. *cue gasps and horror* Since we’re on the topic of your “horror”, can…
