Being number two in a family of four siblings I have always loved big families, and ever since I can remember I have wanted children and five of them!
Luckily for me when I announced this dream to my better half, at the mere age of 24, he didn’t run a mile. Fourteen years later we haven’t quite hit the target number (thankfully) but I am a mama to two little boys.
I started a blog just after I had my first son (Jack) early in 2009, as I found it a much needed therapeutic way to release all the new emotions / anxieties / challenges I was feeling and experiencing. That blog ‘mummiesfirststeps’ lasted for about three months after which I returned to full time work and unfortunately didn’t have the time to keep writing.
I have since had our second son (Finn), now two and a half, am still working but have reduced my hours to four days a week. And it’s now that I have that same urge, as I did all those years ago, to write and share my experiences as a mother…working, playing and wearing many hats in this crazy parenting world we live in.
Enjoy, Christy x
