“Mothers are all slightly insane.”
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
Good old J.D. reckoned all mums were slightly insane and if you’ve ever met a mum – or been one – you’d be inclined to agree.
Parenting is the most rewarding job in the world – but it’s also the most difficult. Between the moments of tears-in-the-eye awesomeness, there’s a whole lot of mind-numbing boredom and, let’s be honest, hard work. Things get tough for all mums, and experiencing and learning how to be a better parent is the inspiration behind my blog – Hipster Mum.
Hipster Mum is about creativity. It’s about showcasing the bright side of life and seeing things through children’s eyes. It’s about kids, fashion, travel, food, beauty and a simple aesthetic that’s softly-softly, pitch-perfect awesome.
Because, just like life before little ones, great style is a guiding light. It inspires, educates and sets the heart soaring. And if you can balance the everyday joys and pain-in-the-ass realities of parenting with honesty and a sense of style, you’ve got a plan that’s just so crazy it might work.
J.D. would be proud.
