I was thinking we make this a little chat, where you get to know a bit more about the mummy behind the posts. If you’re interested in that, grab a cup of tea. Otherwise, the next paragraph summarizes the gist and that’s pretty much all you need to know.
I am a teacher a writer and of course, a mummy. I have two little girls and one big husband. For the sake of the blogs, we’ll call the girls Abbie and Zoe, and we’ll call the man K. K and I were married for a year when we gave birth to Abbie and 19 months later, Zoe was born.
Thanks for stopping by! (If you want to know more, keep reading 👇👇 )
I have had to learn the power of individuality when dealing with Abbie and Zoe. Whilst they may look so much alike, one could mistake them for twins, you are soon yanked into the factual reality of their discernible difference. Sometimes, they are like light and day.
I can almost have Zoe taste a food just so I know whether or not Abbie will like it. If Zoe likes it… you get the drift.
Abbie: My Abbie is a ball of fire! She is a tenacious and determined two year old. She was crawling all over the place with the speed of light at 5 months old. She is the most active baby I’ve ever seen and with her, I am permanently exhausted. I remember having the fear of having two of her kind, when i was pregnant with Zoe. But not quite…
Zoe: Zoe is the quietest baby in the world. Chilled as a cucumber and quite monotone. She is only 8 months old, but even at this young age, my Zoe is very predictable. Unlike Abby, Zoe get’s angry and makes sure she takes it to town! She cries and you can’t do anything about it (until she decides to stop on her own!)
Then there’s K. K is and has always been a very supportive husband. He makes this job a lot easier by sharing the load.
I am part of the “two under two” club and whilst there are times I feel exhausted and at my wits end, my heart bursts with love.
Being a mum is the most rewarding thing I have ever done. As most mums know, it is that job where you not only learn on the job at the beginning, but years later, you’re still learning.
Everyday has it’s challenges, but that superpower in us mums, just keeps us going!
