Oh hello M&B reader! How would you feel about being a part of a group where you can share precious parenting moments (from a cute baby yawn to Weetabix-smushed smiles to their first big meal), meet like-minded mums and gain access to exclusive competitions brimming with brilliant baby goodies?
Introducing... your new online space where you can chat with other M&B readers. Our new '#mumtribe' group is for all of you, so if you fancy joining search '#mumtribe' into Facebook or click this link and request to join the group.
What is #mumtribe?
#mumtribe is where *real* mums like you and us get together to share what life is really like as a mum! Here at M&B HQ, we’ve been getting pretty tired of seeing all those too-good-to-be-true family photos on social, so we thought we’d gather all of us real mums together, do something about it, and have some fun!
Every day, #mumtribe invites mums to share a photo of a parenting moment. It might be a teeny-tiny thing that makes you smile – like your baby’s cute yawn. It might be a mini mum-win – like that little bit of carpet you can still see beneath all the scattered toys. It might be perfectly normal stuff – like a fading stretchmark. Or it could be one of those blow-your-mind moments like the big-eyed look your tot gives you because you’re the very centre of their universe.
If it’s a perfectly imperfect parenting moment, then we want to share it! #mumtribe is a closed Facebook group, so only other mums who’ve signed up can see what you post. And we stick all the photos into a gallery so you can see that life for all of us other mums is just the same as it is for you!
Which we reckon will help us all feel like we’re doing a fab job at this mum business, instead of wondering why our lives seem so chaotic next to everyone else’s! Ooh, and there are lots of competitions to win all sorts of gorgeous goodies too…
Once you’ve been accepted have a read over the welcome message and rules and then get posting! Don’t hold back! We want more interaction with you all – this is less about us telling you what we think all the time because we do that a lot) and more you having conversations and telling us what YOU want to read about. See you at the club (minus the Beyonce and the dancing...)
