Reaching new baby milestones has never been funnier than with Mildly Witty

Without a well developed ability to laugh at ourselves and our kids, this parenting gig would be ten times tougher than it already is so why not share the laughs the Mildly Witty way.

Mildly Witty is the new frontier for milestone cards; taking them from cutesy designs and numbers one to twelve, to risque and lively comments and descriptions of high (and low) lights from the baby and toddler years.


The fun, pop art style of the cards was created in collaboration with the quirky illustration genius of Marie O’Neill Design. This Adelaide-based company only just launched in December last year with their perfect, ready-made captions for life’s not-so-perfect but oh-so-memorable parenting moments.


It’s like they know my kids! I could have got hundreds of likes on social media using the ‘I picked today’s outfit’ card on my kids this past week and, ‘naps are for suckers’ is an ongoing battle I’m losing. mildly-witty_5

A set of Mildly Witty milestone cards retails for $31 (including shipping) and you can purchase through their online shop. Also follow Mildly Witty on Facebook or Instagram to keep up to date with their expanding range.

Just back from maternity leave, Kate Thompson is resigned to a house overrun by boys (3 kids, dog and husband). Existing in a phase she affectionately coins ‘monotonous chaos’, this stay-at-home-mum revels in moonlighting as a writer and feeling like a grown up every once in a while. A background in teaching and psychology, she entered parenthood confident she was up for the challenge, but now eats humble pie on a daily basis.
