Hello! My name is Annette and I’m a stay at home mum with two children. Mr I is aged 3.5 (well 3.75 to be precise) and Miss C is just over 2. I’m a qualified primary teacher, born and raised in Brisbane, Australia. I decided to start writing this blog, to encourage other mummas out there; particularly first time mums, and those who have the baby/toddler type of combo, to keep smiling…keep going. I often get people asking me about life with my two munchkins, and the juggling act that it is (they are 18months apart for those such as myself who are a bit slow in the Maths department 😉).
I aim to share survival tips, my experiences, the highs and lows of being a mumma! No doubt, there will be some recipes, activities, day-to-day shenanigans…and anything else I happen to think of. If there’s any particular question or topic you would love to hear about/talk about, please feel free to send me a message! No matter what your situation, all us mummas go through similar emotions – especially in those early days. Having a baby can be overwhelming and if you’re like me, most days you have no idea what on Earth you are doing and just wing it! Whatever you’re feeling – you’re not alone!! Even the ‘ínstagram perfect’ mummas who seem like they have everything together, *spoiler alert* they don’t, none of us do! We all have ‘those’ moments, good days and bad. A big saying I have learned to live by is – ‘’you do what you gotta do to get through the day’’. No judgements here. Breastfed/bottlefed/screentime/pureed food/packaged food/co-sleeping/baby wearing – as a wise mum once told me: YOU DO YOU, what works for YOU and your family.
Mumlife is a whole new world. Let’s share our experiences – laugh together and cry together. You don’t have to walk the walk alone. Comment below and introduce yourself, share with your friends. Come and join us on a journey of all that is motherhood.
Mumma, we’ve got this!
Until next time, keep smiling pretties!
