Aleksandra Jassem and Nikita Staleny are two REBEL MAMA’s who just published the ultimate girlfriend’s guide to early motherhood. No bullsh*t, no judgment, just the parenting book of your dreams.
Q: How long has this book been in the works for?
We started writing the day our Kickstarter campaign wrapped — May 4th, 2017. The book launched online on May 4th, 2018! We can honestly say it was in the works for exactly 365 days!
Q: If you could describe the book in exactly 3 words, what would it be?
Chill. As. F*ck.
Q: What is your favourite tip/piece of advice from the book?
Ignore people’s opinions about what you do in your “leisure time.” ;)
Q: Are you gals on the same page in terms of parenting or do you have any differing styles or philosophies?
In parenting, (as in life), Nikita is slightly higher strung and Aleks is slightly more rebellious. We try to keep eachother in check as much as possible though. It’s a good balance.
Q: Knowing what you know now, what advice would you tell yourself as a first-time mom?
“Relax babe.” You can’t waste your life worrying about every single thing or you’ll miss out on all the good stuff. Relax, trust your gut, and enjoy the ride!
