It’s Natural to Be a Judgy Mum

Hands up if you have ever felt judged by another mum? All of us, right? Ok, now hands up if you are guilty of having ever judged another mum? If your hand isn’t up, I’m calling bullshit! Can you honestly say that you have never had a single moment, even fleetingly, when you thought to […]

The “Mean Girls” of Mum Blogs

I recently joined the world of Mum Blogs. Dewy eyed and optimistic, I set out to conquer this new world. The website was launched, content was published and social media platforms were created. Starting an Instagram account for the blog, whilst exciting, felt disconcertingly similar to being a 14-year-old girl starting high school all over […]

Breastfeeding Mothers: Set up to Fail

Recently, a bout of mastitis landed me in an after-hours medical clinic with an unfamiliar GP. I described the problem and he dutifully prescribed me antibiotics. Having not had mastitis in over 12 months I was unfamiliar with how often I should be feeding from the affected breast, so I asked the Doctor. My question […]

Raising a Feminist: Teaching Our Boys New Values

Let’s make something very clear. You can be both a man and a feminist. I am the mother to a boy. A bright and beautiful little toddler, still completely innocent. I want to raise him to be happy, confident and secure. I also want to raise him to be a feminist. It is my hope that in my son’s generation, women and men will be politically, economically, personally and socially equal. It is up to us as parents to instil the values of feminism into our children. Especially our boys. Time’s up.

The Definition of a Mummy Moment

What is the Definition of a Mummy Moment? It is that moment of complete calm that washes over you when you strap your screaming child into the carseat and close the door.

Confessions from a Stay at Home Mum

I am a stay at home Mum. It has taken me a long time to come to terms with this. When I first told my closest friends that I was going to be a stay at home Mum, I felt embarrassed. This group of women were hugely successful in their careers. Balancing work and motherhood. I felt that I no longer belonged to their tribe and was unworthy of ever complaining about being tired or lonely.

Discrimination against Mums in the Workplace

Discrimination against working Mums in the workplace exists in Australia and is happening every day. It does not matter that it is 2018, and the laws say that employees are to be treated equally, regardless of gender. When you are a mother, and you are either working or looking for work, there is a great chance that you have experienced some form of discrimination. It may be subtle, such as a crack from a coworker about leaving early to take care of a sick child. Or in my case, it is being treated as completely unemployable due to my having taken a year off work to be home with my son.

The Household CEO

I don’t know when or how it happened, but it appears that I have been “promoted” to the position of Household CEO. The job is relentless, exhausting and the benefits seem none existent. I would like to contact HR immediately and hand in my two weeks notice. Let me take a step back and start […]
