Necessity is the mother of invention. I call my daughter Vera and not Invention right now, but I am her mother and writing about this journey, while virtually holding hands with other like-minded mamas is a necessity for my sanity. Mommallennial was born upon the accidental creation of the best thing to ever exist, my daughter.
Millennials have a bad reputation among the older generations as entitled, lazy, know-nothings who are ruining the world as we know it. Hyperbole? Maybe, but the internet is full of hyperbole so who am I to break the rules?! Like it or not the Millennial’s are breeding and are now charged with raising the next generation of humans to be decent, kind, smart, and fix all of our mistakes.
We are the Mommallennials
I am Robin Toups
I was born in the desert southwest, grew up in coal region of northeastern Pennsylvania and am now a New Orleans mom with a solid cajun last name. A well-rounded somebody. I am a writer, a designer, a salesman, a carnivore, an introvert, a lover of shitty wine, a heavy day-dreamer, and a proud mom. My middle child syndrome runs deep, so it’s okay if you don’t like me, because I’m already pretty sure that you don’t.
