Motherhood is wonderful and yes, bringing a child into this world is its own little miracle—and one to cherish. After becoming a mother separating the two, life pre-motherhood and motherhood, can be difficult and many of us begin to lose our identity outside of motherhood in the process.
A lot of women are beginning to speak out and reach out to one another about finding the home/work balance and making sure that kid(s) stay happy during the search for self-care. Add the non-stop media fueled pressure to be the “perfect” parent to the already demanding role of parenthood and we find ourselves with books like Christie Mellor’s, The Three Martini Playdate – A Practical Guide to Happy Parenting.
As Mellor says, “Simply put, you deserve a little time of your own, a little grown up time, time to do whatever it is that you like to do by yourself, or with friends.” Mellor’s book has been largely well received, but what about mothers whose “grown up time” consists of a couple hits of their favorite Kush strain and a good book? This is where things get sticky. Finding other cannabis-friendly mamas is not an easy task.
