I’ve been contemplating writing a Mummy Blog for the last week, ever since I had a dream about it! This was due to following two established Mummy Bloggers @mummymatters and @cafebebe on Twitter. Subconsciously they have both inspired me to try it out. So thank you Ladies and here goes……
Since the dream or my ‘calling’ (depending on how it turns out), I have been excitedly thinking up ideas about what my first post should say if I were to become a Mummy Blogger. Now I’ve actually come to write it I’m filled with a bag of emotions and don’t know where to start!
My negative emotions keep questioning my decision, nagging away in the background. Am I ready to discuss with the world (yes, the world) my inner most thoughts? Will I be any good at it? What if no one likes what I’m writing? Are my English skills good enough? Will I be able to keep it up? What if I’m a HUGE failure? Thankfully I’m quite a logical and practical thinker so I know these thoughts won’t hinder my decision, plus my positive emotions are strong enough to outweigh the negative ones. These positive ones include excitement, intriguement and the knowledge that all my childless friends on Facebook will be pleased that I no longer post statuses regarding my children, their weight, their sleeping patterns, their illnesses, their toilet habits etc. etc.! You, however, will be really pleased to know that I fully intend to utilise my future blogs for these subjects! Aren’t you lucky?
I’m hoping that every first time blogger goes through the same emotions as I am experiencing now, I am sure that as I write more posts my confidence will grow – I mean who doesn’t like writing/ talking about themselves? and in keeping with that, I thought I’d tell you a little about myself and see where it leads.
I’m a wife to Big and a mummy to Popsy, 27m and Boo, 4m. Big and I have been married for 3.5 years, he is my soul mate. He understands me, supports me, loves me and most importantly puts up with me! Before I became a mummy I worked full time as a music lecturer teaching students 16+. I went back part time when Popsy was 11m, fell pregnant after 4m and intend to go back part time when Boo is 11m. The thing is, I enjoy maternity leave so much!
These days my weeks are full to the brim with Baby & Toddler groups, coffee mornings or afternoons, play dates and shopping – I’m not sure I’ve got time to go back to work!! I’m really enjoying life at the moment and feel very blessed to have two healthy and perfect children. Long may this feeling last.
I hope that you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing them, reliving memories and experiencing life as a mummy to two beautiful children. Thank you for taking the time to read them.
