Instead of a quote or a video, this week I wanted to share an article and an idea!
Let’s laugh. That is the idea and in England on a weekday afternoon in the back of a pub, you just might find a gaggle of moms with their babies doing just that. Instead of a matinee movie, why not catch a comedy act? As more women comedians are rising on the scene, motherhood and parenting is becoming quite the inspiration for material.
Helen Rutter had the idea for her successful mom and baby comedy show shortly after she gave birth. Along with making them laugh, she wanted to design a show to support and reassure new mothers “at a time when your emotions are all over the place and you can feel extremely vulnerable”.

I love the idea of meeting other new moms in your community, being welcomed to breastfeed in public and being thoroughly entertained all in one place. What do you think? Are there any comedy acts aimed at motherhood in your area? Would you be interested in it?
