Welcome to Mommy Has Struggles! Where tortured parents, toddler-moms, single-parents and non-parents can come to vent. After all, misery loves company.
Just kidding, but really. Founded on the idea that social media is often where we share only the best of ourselves, Mommy Has Struggles was founded by writer and designer, Sarah Jane Dunaway.
She woke up one day and thought, “What if I started sharing the real stories on parenting? The struggles, the tantrums and the tears?” Thus, Mommy Has Struggles was born.
As the mother of a three-year old, very very strong-willed child, Sarah Jane was frustrated with the carefully curated photographs of her blogging peers on Instagram. Formerly the voice behind the etiquette and manners-focused blog, Clean & Proper, Sarah Jane shut it down in 2017 to launch Mommy Has Struggles–a site focused on real life, real stories, and real struggles behind the beauty of being a parent and raising tiny humans.
Mommy Has Struggles features humorous, yet down-to-earth stories on the struggle to balance motherhood, career, marriage and life. It’s a site for everyone, from grandparents, to aunts and uncles, to your best friend with no kids, to fathers, to your mom’s best friend who often texts unsolicited parenting advice to both you and your mother.
Get your daily Struggle story as we talk about life, children, parenting, working from home, working from an office, wondering whether to work at all, things we are obsessed with, and of course, tips for surviving everyday through commiseration and compassion.
Sarah Jane’s exclusive podcast interviews with fellow mothers and parents offers insight into the common everyday struggles we all can relate to and share.
Sarah Jane talks fast and often veers off topic, but her truthfulness, insight and down-to-earth humor are something you won’t want to miss. It’s going to be fun, it’s going to be honest, and at the end of each podcast and blog you’ll walk away knowing when it comes to the everyday struggles of raising children, battling toddlers, and figuring out when to cook dinner, you’re not alone.
