I'm a second-time mom to Cooper (#Gingerbaby) and Zoe, sharing stories of strength, struggle and WTF moments. The Communications Director at a Minneapolis ad agency, I live for wine and dirty jokes. #Gingerdad and I live in a Minneapolis suburb where we pretend to stay up past 10pm.
The name Strong Like Mama came while shopping for clothes for my son. Everything says, "strong like daddy" or "mommy's hunk." There are almost no positive messages that position moms as powerful, strong, confident role models for their children. I'm changing that. On June 21, 2016, I launched Strong Like Mama apparel, featuring positive messages for nuggets and their mamas. Portions of Strong Like Mama apparel benefit the strong mamas of Everyday Miracles.
Being a mom, at home or at work, is hard, and it takes generations of strong women to raise tomorrow's leaders. I'm working hard to raise a young man who understands who runs the world (girls), and a young woman who knows no limits.
