Oh, hey mama! We’re so glad you found us, we think you’ll like it here. But what are we all about? In a nutshell, at Messy Like a Mother, we’re normalizing mess.
Whether you relate to having a messy house, messy parenting, messy marriage, messy friendships or all of the above (messy life), there is something for you here. We approach mess with no moral judgment. Mess is not good. Mess is not bad. Mess just is. And then you decide what you want to do about it.
Does your organized chaos give you a sense of peace? Do you like to go with the flow, have a flex schedule, or leave piles of things everywhere (but you know exactly where everything is)? Then leave it alone. Don’t mess with your mess! You embody our favourite phrase, “embrace the mess”. You are in the right place. Here, you’ll feel empowered, never judged, and you can find advice or encouragement wherever it makes sense for you.
Does clutter stress you out but you feel paralyzed? Do you thrive on a routine but don’t know where to start? Are you in a constant battle with your inner voice, which is telling you to feel guilt and shame, but you know that you deserve better? Mama, you are also in the right place. We’ll give you tools to navigate the areas you want to change or improve with realistic advice and zero judgment. We’ll also remind you (often) that you are a powerful goddess; your worth is inherent—and not determined by your productivity.
Motherhood is hard, messy and joyful. Like our fave parenting guru Dr. Becky often says, you can feel two (or many) different things at the same time. Exhaustion, resilience, anxiety, elation, dread, excitement. Let’s shed the guilt and embrace the chaos.
This is a safe space for you if you:
* save the BS and also genuinely care
* can’t get out of bed, but you want to feel better
* fiercely love your kids and they also drive you insane
* don’t know wtf you’re doing and also give amazing advice
* need a village and also need time alone
* are a great listener and also need a shoulder to cry on
* are sometimes hypocritical and also want to change
* feel totally at peace and also feel like you’re drowning
* are high-functioning and also losing your shit
We often experience many of these simultaneously. This is a place for all mothers and mother-figures (or anyone who identifies as a mother) who are ready to be honest about the good, the bad, the meaningful and the messy.
