Sometimes the truth hurts. And sometimes it's just hilariously funny. I have recently become a fan of Honestbaby's laughable one-liners. My youngest son has their "I'm My Mom's Job" tee, that serves as a gentle (or not so gentle) reminder that, even though I don't receive a paycheck, I still work hard. See the dirty shirt to the left? Yup. That's going to take a lot of hard work to clean!
Honestbaby has a plethora of cute sayings that were coined by Jill Besnoy. These include "Sharing Is Over-Rated" "I'll Walk When I'm Good And Ready" and "I'm Not A Performing Monkey". HILARIOUS! No parent is perfect, we all make mistakes, and this was the driving force behind Honestbaby. Here is the story!
Honestbaby was founded by a mom frustrated with the myth of perfect parenting.
From the moment a new mother holds her baby, she’s bombarded with the “right” and “wrong” way to parent; breastfeeding, ferberizing, nipple confusion, the family bed, Baby Einstein, organic food, pacifiers…everyone has an opinion.
Whether it’s other new moms, family, friends, or self-proclaimed parenting experts, they push their views and make us doubt our ability as parents. Desperate for answers and prone to guilt, we believe everything we’re told.
Until we realize…there is no “right” way to raise a child and few women can live up to those super mom expectations anyway.
honestbaby is a place where it’s okay to tell your real stories, the good and the bad, without being judged. Where parents can admit they’re just giving it their best shot. Because truly that’s all that we can really do.
It’s time to bring parenting back to where it belongs – humorous, light, enjoyable and above all realistic. It’s time for all parents to celebrate imperfect parenting.
Now onto my favorite part of the show. Of course I love trying cool new things, but it's always better to give than to receive. I love that I get to share Honestbaby with you guys! And someone VERY lucky is going to pick their very own Honestbaby shirt!
