We'll say it so you don't have to

So why did we decide to write a blog? Mostly because after we became mothers we discovered how much we didn’t know about parenting, and that there are a whole lot of things other people don’t tell you. When you are visiting friends with newborns they give you the rose-colored-glasses version of their birth story, completely omitting the fact that they are sitting on a maxi pad the size of an inner tube. We created this blog so we could share what we’ve learned and what we're still learning with brutal honesty and a dose of sarcasm.

While we are both mothers, we are each only one child and a few years into the journey. We do not claim to be experts by any stretch, but we try to take a practical approach to parenting, and when the going gets really tough, we find ways to laugh at ourselves. We hope some of our posts are informative and others are just amusing. Be sure to leave comments on the posts and let us know what topics you would like us to cover—as long as your comments are constructive and properly punctuated. Remember, we’re all in this together, and most of us are just making it up as we go along
