My name is Natalie and I am a Lumpy Mother of two. My daughter, Avelyn Grace, is a dramatic and outgoing three year old. My son, Harrison Joseph, is one and excited to discover the world. I grew up in a family that laughed (loudly) together wherever we went. We’re that family at a restaurant that should be seated alone in a section. When my daughter was born and I became a mother, I realized that laughter was the best prevention to losing my sanity.
There are lots of websites about ‘how to’ and ‘why you should’, and while I use them regularly myself, this isn’t one of them. I am not here to add anything to your to-do list. I am here to help you forget it exists for a few moments. I am here to remind you that it’s ok to:
- serve cold cereal for breakfast
- pee yourself in public places
- go commando for a few days because there is no clean laundry
Being a ‘lumpy mother’ means accepting the imperfections that come along with raising screaming, needy, miniature humans. It isn’t easy, but we’re going to get through it together, in a very disorganized, forgetful, and hectic manner.
If you’re a new Lumpy Mother (or Father!), welcome! There’s a lot to see, so start with “Favorites”, it’ll show you a history of the best-loved posts!
