Meet the Mamas Who Know It
Welcome to what we hope will soon be a fixture on the screens of mamas everywhere. The journey to create Mama Knows It began during a girls’ weekend in Boston, and while it was an unplanned journey that began after a few too many glasses of wine, we’re excited that it has come to fruition. So, you might be asking yourself: “Who are these mamas and why would I care about what they know?” Well, mama, here goes…
Have you ever found yourself watching your child do something so unbelievably gross that you questioned whether it was normal?
When going through your pregnancy did you experience moments of heightened joy followed by anxiety only to realize you really did put your shirt on backwards?
You betcha we did!
How about those times when you questioned why you joined the PTA and wondered if you could just bring in store-bought doughnut holes in your own Tupperware for the “homemade goods only” bake sale? I mean, would they really notice?
Yes! We have!
Have you ever spent an hour in a relaxing bubble bath reading Real Simple while listening to Michael Bublé and sipping a bubbly glass of Prosecco without interruption?
Neither have we!
There are so many things that mamas go through with their children (and spouses and friends!) from birthing to empty-nesting that we decided we needed each other. We need each other to laugh, cry, and drink too much Cabernet with during a girls’ weekend. We need each other to share stories of the good, bad, and sticky and to applaud getting past the diaper stage. We need each other for empathy, advice, and sometimes a plain old reminder that we can do this parenting thing.
We need you, mama, and we hope you need us, too.
So, who are these mamas that know it, anyway? We knew you’d ask! We’re just a group of friends who traversed college together and, nearly 20 years later, are commiserating and celebrating life as mamas. We’re lawyers, entrepreneurs, business professionals, and teachers. We’re stay-at-home, work-from-home, and full-time office mamas. We’re nursing, pumping, and formula mamas. We’re urban, suburban, and rural mamas. We’re disposable, cloth, and straight-to-undies mamas (okay, maybe not that last one).
What we’re trying to say is that even with our many differences in life, careers, and parenting, we are best friends navigating the same messy terrain of motherhood.
And we’re inviting you to join us.
