A while back we dove deep into the crazy world of Facebook Mom groups. Now we're back to talk about my favorite: BAD Moms of Westchester! Read on to learn more about this group and how to join us on our wine tour, mommy's night out, or just get loads of support on our no-bitchyness-please message boards.
BAD Moms of Westchester
This group started as a refuge for castoffs who were kicked out of that other Westchester Moms group (and yes, there are that many people who have been kicked out!). BAD Moms is unapologetically ... well ... unapologetic. This is the group where you can post things like "My child is making me crazy" and no one will mom-shame you. What you'll most likely get is "Me too!" followed a bunch of GIFs of people drinking wine.
BAD Moms was started in 2017 by Alessandra Suarez, a Yonkers mom with two toddlers. She felt like so many Facebook groups were run by middle school bully types. There had to be other moms like her and she wanted to find them. She was right—the group has quickly ballooned to more than 5,000 members. Despite its size, it feels more like a group text with your besties. BAD Moms maintains its hundreds of daily posts and comments with little to no drama.
Alessandra loves that there are the OG regulars who help shape the tone of the group, and the newbies who come in and exclaim, "I love this place!" A series of Paul Rudd GIFs will typically follow. This forgiving group won't kick you out unless you get judgey, so save the "I would never!"s for the other mom groups.
It's been such a hit that there have been several IRL spinoffs. Join us for:
Mommy's Night Out drink nights. These happen whenever a member posts "Let's go out. Who's with me?"
An official BAD Moms Wine & Cider Tour scheduled for October 14 in collaboration with The Little Wine Bus. A busload of lovely ladies will be leaving from Westchester to go to the North Fork of Long Island to experience tastings, nibbles, raffles, grape stomping, light bites. There will be goody bags and a souvenir wine glass! Want in? Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
