About Us

Mommyish is a home for women of all ages who are interested in the final frontier of work/life balance: Parenting.  Over the past five years, Mommyish has built a dedicated community of moms who believe that the only parenting sin is being a sanctimommy (A Sanctimonious Mom).   At Mommyish, we recognize that nothing is easy and that we must strive for acceptance, balance, and most of all, a strong sense of humor.

Mommyish writers take parenting seriously, but we don’t take ourselves seriously.  We care about the realities of parenting today, and combine a thirst for the latest parenting news and trends with a tongue in cheek approach to childrearing.  On Mommyish, we welcome an array of perspectives on pregnancy, sex, partnerships, work life balance, and of course childrearing. We’re not interested in telling our readers the RIGHT way to parent, but we do care about the choices parents make every day and we want them to be informed.

Let’s be honest. Parenting is tough. The decisions we make for our kids and families are sensitive ones. We don’t claim to have this whole parenting thing figured out. And we don’t expect you to either.
