13 Mommy Facebook Pages You Need to Follow

Let’s face it, our Facebook timelines have taken a serious dive. I know mine has dissolved into a near constant state of fear, anger, and frustration. But there are still some bright spots on the platform, a few pages that the shadows have not overtaken.
And if you are new to this whole parenting thing like me, you are probably aching for some relating. I found some pretty awesome mommy Facebook pages you need to be following for advice, for support, and for some good old fashioned making fun of our crazy lives.
These ladies share uncensored Mom truths, hilarious memes, relevant topical stories from the news, magazines, other social media platforms, etc., recipes, accessible fashion advice, DIY, and even survival gardening.
Moms really can do it all and these Facebook pages show that the proof of that is in the content, served up homemade or from the microwave, no judgement.
Here are some of my favorite Facebook pages that brighten up my timeline.

  1. Scary Mommy
  2. The Drunk Mom
  3. Diary of a Mom
  4. The Typical Mom
  5. Hot Mess Mom
  6. CafeMom
  7. The Winey Moms (Disparaging remarks about people who receive government assistance proliferated this page after my recommendation. Steer away, I ended up blocking them there was so much hate.)
  8. Insane in the Mom-Brain
  9. The Survival Mom
  10. The Mom Edit
  11. The Mom Life Uncensored
  12. The Mom Truthbomb
  13. The Mom Life

Most of these ladies blog on a separate website so make sure you drop in on those and give them a follow, let them brighten up your inbox too! What else are you getting in there, another coupon for 10% off at a store you will never shop in again? (Looking at you Forever 21!)
And don’t forget to give A Bookish Mama a like and a follow if you want to see more posts like this!

I Hope She Finds Somebody Like You

I hope that love finds our daughter like it found me. That the stars align to find her soulmate has been there the whole time. Waiting. Waiting for the moment when everything is right, when the complications of her life have resolved to the point of sustained happiness.
I hope that love whispers softly into her dreams like the scent of a garden wafting on lofty breezes trampezing through sun baked air.
I hope that love finds her with kindness, seeking to elevate her, hold her up to find she is worth more than she believed herself to be. That violence is blinded by the glare of a gentle soul seeking in her the self same care.
I hope that love finds her through the heart of a loving partner who holds her hand each time it nears their own. Who says, “I’m sorry,” regardless of who was wrong. Who nurses no ill will even to those who’ve done them harm.
I hope she finds somebody like you.
