Helping Mums Live Happily Ever After

Leaky boobs, sleepless nights and multiple meltdowns (usually in public, often by me); parenthood certainly has its challenges. When my son was born, it soon became clear that my journey on the mother-ship was going to have its own set of hiccups, and it took some time before I was comfortable to accept myself as ‘mum’.

As a qualified teacher, I had secretly hoped that my prior experience of managing other people’s children would assist me in managing mine… Err… not really… or at least not yet. (For now at least, the government has decided to leave neonatal care off the new primary curriculum!) But as time has ticked by, I’ve learnt how to adapt some of my classroom skills to use at home, and Little O and I are finally on our way to living happily ever after. (I hope… I might take that sentence back – wouldn’t want to tempt fate!)

Parenting Truths, Reviews and Inspiration

If you ever hear yourself saying, “Just let him put the towel over his face,” (peekaboo after bath-time is still a must in our house) or asking, “Have you done a poo?” countless times a day, then you’re in the right place. The Fairytale Mum tracks the highs and lows of raising children. The blog features:

  • Parenting Truths – Supportive stories and ideas for when you need it most;
  • Reviews – Tot friendly events and days out, toys, books and paraphernalia;
  • Inspiration – Activities and ideas for you to try with your little ones.

My other blog, The Fairytale Bride, was shortlisted for Best Rising Star at the 2016 Wedding Blog Awards. Both blogs reflect genuine inspiration and honest reviews of their respective themes. If a product or service isn’t a good fit for either blog, then it’s kinder if I don’t write about it. That way, I can keep my integrity and my readers know that I am trustworthy.

Understandably, he is my sidekick and muse, so you can expect to see his cheeky face (and opinions) crop up from time to time.
