Are you winging it? 


I can 100% confirm I am winging it! I’m now in my second year of being a school mum and let me tell you, it’s crazy!

There’s so much to learn and remember, friends to make, playground politics and head lice!!

I get so many letters each week, with tear off slips, that I then lose and I never have the correct amount of change required to put in an envelope on hand in deadline day.

I hate homework, I get nervous every week when I check the book to see what’s been set. Then there are spellings, a load of colour coded reading books to get through and finally recorder practice! Ahhhh!

I’m winging it and standards are dropping. We used to turn up on time, clean and smart with styled hair.

Now we race to the gate in time to hear the whistle, with stained clothes that have been wet wiped clean and serious bed hair! And that’s me! But my son looks no better!

So I’m totally winging it and this is why I need to invest in one of these!


We’re all winging it right? Whether it be parenthood, work, relationships… or just life as a whole.

This awesome sweatshirt and its slogan are thought up by the chief mama Molly, founder and editor of the hugely successful online parenting site Selfish Mother, leader of the ‘Sistahood’.

The best bit is, not only is it a super WINGING IT sweatshirt that sums up my daily school run mum life, but the profits go to KIDS, an amazing charity that supports disabled kids and their families.

Wearing my MOTHER tee with baby Lorne

I’m already a follower of Selfish Mother and bought my MOTHER tee this time last year.

Here’s a bit of info on Selfish Mother and the ethos behind their fashion line…

We launched our ‘Mother’ sweat to show solidarity for the global sistahood. Because, us mamas in the Western world have got it damn good! We have the power to help women less fortunate than ourselves.

All profits* from sales of Mother designs go to Women for Women International – an amazing charity that helps women in 8 war-torn regions rebuild their lives through training programmes.

*When we say ‘all profits’ this means £15 from the sale of each sweat going straight to help others!

As of JAN 2016 we’ve donated £65,500 to Women for Women International through sales of #MotherTees & #SistaTees, supporting over 100 women through a year-long course which helps them to earn a living thus supporting themselves and their families! We look forward to donating more soon…

So join the positive mama movement, purchase a sweat, leg it to the school gates and wear it proud, #WingingIt.

See you in the playground SISTA!
