Welcome Back to HippyMom!

Six years ago, HippyMom became a source of love, inspiration, angst and amazing feats of parenthood, womanhood, and the overall genius of several women who were essentially trapped within the ties of motherhood.
I’d like to say it was otherwise, but, well, that would be a lie. I’m all about the transparency.
From that day forward, HippyMom was ebbed and flowed with the changes experienced by the members, and even the world [...]

 

An Ode to the End of the World

Heh, I lied. Its not an ode, its just me rambling. Surprise!
In a sense, its pretty interesting that the Mayan calendar may or may not choose this particular year to end, especially since I may have a personal sense of getting my own shit together.
I’m relaunching a website in, oh, less than a month. Despite the hurdles I’ve been flinging myself into over this six year old albatross around my [...]

 

Meeting Other Moms

Happy June from HippyMom!

Its that time of the month! No, not THAT time (well, ok, it could be, but I’m really not speaking poon right now, oddly enough). Its time to plug the new month of activities on HM! While I was busy frolicking in the ocean and watching belly dancers gone wild, MamaBirdie and her plant stole my spotlight… literally.
So, without further ado, I present:
MamaBirdie does HippyMom!
