Who is Mommyfied?
I have been working as a journalist for twelve years and writing about parenting for magazines and newspapers for four. I started this page because I’m on a personal mission to provide a counter thesis to pretend perfect parenting.
To say that I have grown tired of mom shaming is the year’s biggest understatement. I am tired of myself and fellow parents getting mom shamed.
Mission and Message
I want you to know that:
- You don’t have to be a perfect parent to be a good one.
- Parenting is beautiful, stinky and messy, but beautiful.
- A parent’s love is one of the strongest, most amazing forces in the world.
- Parenting is tough and we should never be ashamed to admit to be flawed, to make mistakes, and to ask for help from each other.
Together we will form a tribe of real parents with real struggles, who have grown tired of pretending they have this parenting gig perfectly figured out. We will laugh at our silly parenting skills and our crazy kids who drive us insane.
