Monster Mummies was born shortly after the arrival of my second baby. It was a Tuesday, a wet Tuesday and I was struggling across the road with my non-cooperative 3 year old and the new one. The baby was in a carrier that claimed to be effortless to use, claims that were backed up by images of serene mothers, goddess-like women perfectly at ease with this child-rearing milarky. It was not easy to use, and I was more red-faced huffer and puffer than serene goddess. A kindly stranger stopped to ask if I needed to help when my three-year old piped up “It’s okay, she might look like a monster but she’s just being a mummy”
So here it is Monstermummies.co.uk, celebrating motherhood one messy, tiring but real and beautiful monster moment at a time.
