NOT your Average Mom


This is the place for anyone who believes that there is no such thing as an "average mom." Here, you'll find stories from single mothers, mothers with ailing parents, mothers with one child, with multiple children, working mothers, and stay-at-home-mothers. The point of everything you see here is only to emphasize the point that we are whole people before we are parents, and that the parenthood role is just as much a part of our individuality as it is a factor that bonds us as a community.  If you believe that a woman's story doesn't end with motherhood, you're in the right place. Welcome.
