Happy Birthday Today’s Mama

This week we’re celebrating the 5th Birthday of Today’s Mama and to kick off a week of celebratory posts, Erin is sharing some of her favorite posts from the last five years.

This month Today’s Mama turns five. I get to kick off our Anniversary Week posts because today is my birthday! That’s right, party people, it’s all cupcakes and margaritas today at my house. (Not really, since I’m nursing, but a girl can dream.)

Happy Birthday

I distinctly remember sitting in Rachael’s living room five years ago, celebrating my birthday with festive fruit tarts, and talking about the last minute to-do’s that we needed to take care of before TodaysMama.com would go live.

I can’t believe it’s been five years.

We’ve always strived for a mix of light-hearted and helpful on this website. Here’s a list of some of my favorite posts from the last five years.

Let me kick off my list of favorites with a post from one of my favorite people, Rachael Herrscher. Without her leadership, friendship, well timed text messages, and affection for Will Ferrell movies, I for one, would be nothing. Check out Suburban Thug—A New Dialect Spoken by Mothers.

My favorite photo of Rachael and me. Sums us up nicely.

Today's MILF

It seems that today’s moms are a little more stylish and body conscious than moms of old. After all, 40 is the new 30; we’re taking pride in our look. The days of muumuus and house coats are gone with home perms and compression socks.
