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 […]

Our Post Baby Bodies: Why the Focus needs to be on Getting Stronger and not Losing the ‘Baby Weight’

While it is difficult for women to not focus on losing their baby weight, as it is all over social media, I would love women to value function over aesthetic and to see the importance of having a body that is strong enough, nimble enough and fuelled enough to do the things we love to do for ourselves and for our families.

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. It is peeing with the door closed. Those first sips of an excellent coffee after a sleepless night. I don’t class a Mummy Moment as unloading a dishwasher, choking down a sandwich or squeezing in some work. Want to know more? Read on…

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.

What goes into my Toddler Snack Box

I am a big believer in the ‘snack box’. It is like a lunch box, but also contains many many many snacks. Because toddlers tummies are so unpredictable. Some days they are hungry little hippos, hoovering up body builder sized plates of food. Other days it is flat out food refusal. So I like to […]

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.
