“We all MUST remember that the people who created these rules, suggestions and standard for child-rearing and motherhood were NOT RAISING A BABY DURING A PANDEMIC + CIVIL RIGHTS CRISIS + ECONOMIC CRISIS all at once” (nsfmg)
We chat with the fabulous founders of The Rebel Mama, Nikita Stanley and Aleksandra Jassem on what it's been like to be a mother in 2020 and what we can do to get through the latter half. (*Hint, cannabis - legal in Canada now*). But also agility, calmness and community.
In 2014, the two unlikely moms combined their talents and mutual distaste for the typical mommy rhetoric and created The Rebel Mama(.com). Adored by cool moms the world over, the smart and edgy online publication creates a safe and judgement-free space that’s known for its celebration of both individuality and authenticity.
Between the two of them, Aleks and Nikita are mamas to three kids, a dog, and a cat. They reside in Toronto, Canada and survive (almost) exclusively on peanut butter sandwiches, Napolitano pizza, and coffee. So much coffee.
“The Handbook for (Cool) Moms” is available now on Amazon, Indigo, and Barnes & Noble.
