DEAR DAUGHTER

Dear Daughter I didn’t have, I have had all these dreams for you. They started before you existed.  Before you were a thought in my mind. I knew I would not drape you in bows and fuchsia.  I knew you wouldn’t be forced to be someone you wouldn’t be.  I wanted you to be you….

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…

CHANGING OUR HAIRSTORY

So. We’ve been keeping a secret from you for the past month or so… A while back , we were contacted by the good people from Hairstory (you likely know them better by their former creation, Bumble and Bumble) and they said they had a new product line for us to rave about. We told…

A BIRTHDAY WISH

Just about three years ago, I walked down my new neighbourhood street, looked down at my full-term belly, and tried to imagine a little boy in a baseball cap walking beside me, possibly holding my hand… maybe singing a song. What would he be like? What would we be like?  Oscars debut into the world,…

THOSE DAMN INSTAMOMS

By: Eve Nicholson-Smith I’m doing the hourly mindless scroll, where the curated minutia of other people’s lives whirls past in the muted artsy shades of sepia and deceit. Most often it’s when I’m nursing my eleven-month-old baby or after I’ve put her down for a nap and instead of doing something mentally stimulating or even…

TO E.R. OR NOT TO E.R.

By Natasha Tsagogeorgas We’ve all been there. It’s 2am, your baby is awake and has a fever of 39. You gave her Advil 2 hours ago, and she still feels warm.  You get anxious. You Google. You get more anxious. You ask The Rebels for advice. A couple of them suggest taking your baby to ER…

MAKING A CASE FOR TIDYNESS

Prepare yourselves because I’m about to go straight Martha Stewart on your asses. I’m one of those moms who needs her house to be neat and tidy… pretty much all the time*. I have 2 young sons – a three-year-old (who, lucky for me isn’t big on messes and dirt) and a nearly one-year-old who…

IN SOLIDARITY WITH SWEARY MOMS

By: Anjum Khan “…ssssshit”‘. I stopped dead in my tracks. Did I hear that right? “Aria, what did you say?” I look over at my 15-month-old who had just dropped my set of keys and there it was again, “ssshit, shit, SHIT!” She enunciated with more and more emphasis each time she said it. My…

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…

THE ALMIGHTY MOM

You know the one. Her shit don’t stink and her offspring is an ethereal, miracle, genius-baby that does the family taxes. She crowned herself the authority on all things motherhood, and became a child specialist overnight. The problem? She’s now on the other end of your phone/beside you on the couch, preaching her sleep-training methods…
