Mommy Blogger Says She Drinks Wine to Cope with Kids ‘Driving Her Crazy’
Mom’s can be quick to judge when it comes to other moms or parenting in general. This Mommy blogger is no exception.
One woman has built her brand on sharing the side of motherhood that few mothers admit these days.
She admitted that she drinks to cope with her children “driving her crazy,” according to a report.
Australian influencer Constance Hall has an unorthodox approach to how she raises her seven children, whom she allows to eat with their hands, run wild in supermarkets and skip baths, the Daily Mirror reported Wednesday.
“This is the modern family, this is what I blog about,” Hall told “60 Minutes” Australia. She added, “We’ve got equal rights to go work but we [women] still have to do 90 percent of the housework anyway.”

Home with the team!!! Got in at 1am and surprised them all this morning. Its bitter sweet, Snow is now screaming in her bedroom for a lolly… I do miss my freedom., Newcastle was just so much fun!!! On a brighter note!!!! In 2.5 hours….. I reveal the most stunning cover on the planet for “The Year of The Queen” And I open presales!!!!! So get get ready Queens!!! If there is a young Queen in your life that you want to surprise or empower or just fling a little love to, be a part of the presale so you can get it in time for Christmas!!!
“So what did that even do for us? It’s just made us even more tired,” she questioned. “Unless we just stop of course and live in squalor which I’m obviously kind of what I’m doing and trying hard not to.” Hall has a reputation for her posts, which are in stark contrast to her fellow mommy bloggers and influencers who tend to present a life that looks more like perfection than reality.
The successful author and fashion designer instead prefers to give her followers brutal honesty and raw transparency. For example, she’s admitted that she “checks out” as a mom after 7:30 p.m. for some much-needed personal time.
Hall has also ruffled feathers in Australia for her feminist views, even joking she was “probably going to get snipered tomorrow.”

How could she? Look like that? spell like that? talk so openly about her past and all the beds she’s slept or not slept in? Let her hair knot like that? raise her children like that? Let her house mess like that? Share her opinions like that? How could she? Take pride in all of that mess. Love and be loved so openly.. when she has none of what we told them is Loveable? When we trained them to be the opposite? We trained a controlled woman, a compliant woman, a woman who is happy to live her life small, hidden away, a pretty woman who’s top priority is her perfectly smoothed out wavey locks. A woman who laughs at their humourless jokes and keeps their secrets quiet. And then she came. All woman. In your face, woman. “Fuck your entitlement” woman. Not gonna conform, woman. Loves who she is woman. Laugh loud enough for the whole restaurant to hear woman. And the worst part is, the part we will never admit? some of us are ever attracted to that disgusting bitch of a woman. How could she.. Con 💜💅🏾👑
All in all, Hall said she embraces her reputation for imperfection along with her approach to motherhood.
She said, “I think people like me because life’s just not perfect. You know? It’s not happily ever after. It’s not meant to be.”
