As much as I'm not 100% keen on the term, yes, I guess you could call this a mummy blog because I am a mum and share my musings, experiences and thoughts on motherhood.
I'm definitely not about telling you how you should be raising your kids, I'm here to share my experiences, challenges and the occasional parenting tips in the hope that it is relatable and helpful because we all know how much pressure us mums put on ourselves!
I hope you enjoy scrolling through the numerous posts I have written over the years on motherhood, pregnancy, birth, toddler taming, childcare, postnatal depression, miscarriage, kids activities and more. And, I always love hearing from my readers too so feel free to drop a line.
Happy reading and thanks for dropping by.

“Is your mummy getting rid of you already,” said a well-meaning friend as she gave Miss M a cuddle. It didn’t make me feel good to hear it, I felt like there was a hidden message but I am firm on my reasons for putting Miss M in childcare two days a week while Master […]

Guest blog by Amy Williams A few years ago, our family was on vacation and I was driving in rush hour traffic, in construction, in an unfamiliar major city. Everyone was asleep, or so I thought. So I focused on my driving, but during a tight lane change, I uttered a choice phrase out of […]
I never ever thought there would come a time that I’d love wearing full briefs. All those jokes of big ‘grandma undies’ hanging on the line, I vowed that I’d never go there. I remember thinking how unsexy they were and that I’d never be caught dead in a pair. Oh, how times have changed […]
