Have you ever wondered what’s in a mommy’s sippy cup? Maybe a refreshing jug of water infused with lemon, a protein shake packed with extra kale, or, just maybe, it’s the unassuming adult cocktail. Let’s face it, being a mom and wife isn’t always the fairytale we think its cracked up to be; instead of princess dresses and a waiting knight in shining armor, most mothers are judged as if its still 1950’s suburbia.
Being a woman is challenging, and women have not only become afraid to be honest with others, but with themselves.
Tales of a Mommy’s Sippy-Cup started as a blog that impressively offended residents of the author’s small town. The controversy wrapped snug around the honest matter-of-fact tenacity facing the functions of motherhood often ignored. Mary Haddock not only embraces the actuality of her motherly role, but the social pariah she had become amongst the superficial parents in her community. She went against the grain and wrote down her personal narrative for all to enjoy.
Equipped with a sippy-cup tip at the end of each tale, Haddock makes clear that fellow mama warriors are not alone in this insane universe called motherhood.
So grab your special sippy-cup with your choice of adult beverage, and let’s sit back and laugh at how moms try to keep it real. Cheers!
Mary E. Haddock is a wife, stay-at home-mother and blogger residing in New Jersey with her husband of twelve years and their four young boys. She is a certified teacher with a Master’s Degree from Rutgers University who founded and operated her own licensed Child-Care Center for five years before deciding to focus more on home life. After starting a candid blog chronicling the ‘uber’ and over-the-top events following her four travel sports’ sons and head-coach husband, a trajectory of small-town uproar followed the truth that she seamlessly portrayed with unsharpened ease. Haddock was thus inspired to continue on, narrating both personal and raw events that touched on women’s struggles as wives and mothers; hence, “Tales of a Mommy’s Sippy-Cup” series was born.
