A Little About Ourselves
Smarty Mommies is a website dedicated to intelligently discussing the experience of being a smart, thinking mother. Here at Smarty Mommies HQ we enjoy talking about feminism, parenting, marriage, partnership, work, household management, health, boobs, and the contents of our literal and metaphorical diaper bags.
Shannon, reacting to your grammar
As Smarties, together we seek to critically examine our place in our culture as mothers and how to negotiate intersections between our individual identities and our “mom” identities. As Mommies, we support our fellow parents and experiment with parenting practices to suit us and ours.
We welcome and seek to address a diverse group of badasses – no one here is assumed to be straight, gay, cis, trans, white, brown, black, beige, breastfeeding, bottle feeding, epidural-loving, hypnobirthing, liberal, conservative, poor, rich, religious, atheist, poop-proud, shit-shy, or never-nude. Everyone reading, writing, and commenting here is assumed to be smart, a mom, and worth listening to.
The outside world is tough for Smarties and Mommies, so within Smarty Mommies we strive to understand, include, and support one another as we figure out this absurd, brilliant, beautiful, and exhausting motherhood thing together.
