About This Blog

In my (albeit short) experience as a stay-at-home mum, I feel so much better and happier when I get out of the house and connect with the world around me. So nappies, sleep deprivation and teething aside, I want to share my feelings about all that is good in the (very social) world of motherhood.

What will I write about?
When I started this blog in July 2012 I wanted to focus on the fun things like entertaining friends at home, exploring the world with the family in tow, engaging with others in your community and mummy style tips. While I still focus on the positive aspects of parenthood and provide my ideas in these areas, I also write about my journey as a mother – how I feel, how I’m inspired, my fears, my joys, the challenges, my successes.

I figure you don’t need to read about my trip to the supermarket or daily chores, because you pack that into your week already. Ultimately I want to write with a purpose, and share the things that matter. So if it doesn’t help you, give you an idea, make your life easier, open your mind to new possibilities, make you think or make you smile – you won’t find it here.

Why write this blog?
Well, I don’t know about you, but soon after announcing my pregnancy I discovered not everyone shared my enthusiasm; I encountered many warnings and commiserations about becoming a mum. Despite this, I always believed that motherhood would be an amazing journey and I still wake up every day feeling incredibly blessed.

And I think I'm part of the majority. Sure, I have my days (just like any new parent) but I wish there were more people sharing positive stories and experiences of parenthood.

Since becoming a mum, I've been surprised at the amazing evolution of my social life through Mothers Group, and the connection I’ve renewed with others and my own spirit. Good days or bad, I am surprised, entertained, enlightened and thankful for having this experience.

 
I'm looking forward to sharing our journey together and I can't wait to hear what you do to keep your mummy mojo alive too!
