Mombies Unite

Hey. It's me. I'm Abbie, the rambling writer here at Grumbling Grace. Today I want to take a minute to share a story with you. 


Way back before Christmas, a bunch of us moms were commiserating over something on Instagram... Was it lack of sleep? Meltdowns? Poopsplosions? Who knows. It was definitely parenting relating. As everyone bonded over their terrible offspring, my friend Erin cheered, "Mombies Unite!"

You know. A ZOMBIE MOM. Duh. I think StillRad actually coined the phrase 'mombie'. Check out StillRad Mombie Clothing here.
From that moment on, I have wanted to open a Mombies Unite Coffeehouse and Spa with 24 hour daycare. Unfortunately, my dreams are bigger than my pocketbook so I settled for just buying a new pocketbook.  

Oops.

Which brings us to this post. The community of women surrounding me is brilliant, so I make it a point to mention that I PLANNED that...You know, to learn stuff.  As I thought about the diversity of experience and wisdom my friends carry around everyday along with their diaper bags, briefcases, backpacks and chic purses, it hit me. 

Why not take all those funny, silly, wonderful, serious, sad, poignant, incredible stories and honest advice and SHARE IT on Grumbling Grace? 

This might be the best idea I've ever had. Starting next Monday (because who doesn't need something to get through MONDAYS), join us for Mombies Unite. I'll be featuring a guest post from a different mom each week and the subjects will be as varied as the incredible women sharing. I CAN'T WAIT.

P.S. Let me know if you want to donate to the Mombies Unite Coffeehouse project. All financial gifts can be made out to me... (Just kidding, internet trolls. Relax.)

P.P.S. (For realz this time) Are you a mom with something to share? Wanna be a guest poster on Mombies Unite? Scroll to the bottom of the page and fill out the contact form. I'll get back to you with all the details!
